    Cookie.Cruz- The second page does not have to be full but make sure that you are very thorough in answering the required questions. You hate to make it shorter than allowed and miss something. And it should be single spaced.

    If you are not accepted, then you will apply for the Summer session. So you would have 2 semesters before possibly starting the program. The only class that you can take ahead of time that specifically applies to the nursing program is Pathophysiology. Other than that, you could take classes that may benefit you in some way during the program. Such as "Intro to Military and Veterans Health" or "Gerontology".

    That being said.... I am sending good vibes your way in hopes that you will be accepted!

    Hi Cookie.Cruz!

    I am applying to the USF Upper Division program for Fall 2013 as well. I have a 3.85 overall and a 3.75 pre-req GPA. I've been shadowing a CRNA in the operating room for the past two semesters and I volunteer in a clinical drug research trial. I also have worked part-time at Publix for the past two years. I'm hoping that experience is enough to get in! Good luck on the essay! It took me a little over a month to write it, edit it, and then edit it again lol. It drove me crazy but definitely take the time to go over it, and have other people go over it as well. I had four nurses (including my mom) and two of my former English professors review and suggest changes for my paper. My fingers are crossed that we both get in!!

    Wow, lol, looks like you have alot of reliable sources. I wrote this in 2 days and I'm just waiting for the school to review it and a fellow nurse. You have a better chance than me of getting in but lets stay positive and keep our fingers crossed!! Hopefully, the decision will be made quickly.

    Waiting will definitely be the hardest part!! I'm really excited and anxious at the same time lol. We both have great stats!

    yes haha i am very nervous. I just submitted my app through SOAR about 30 minutes ago. I was waiting to be admitted through Undergrad Admissions before applying through SOAR.. talk about good timing! I was so afraid I wouldn't make it before the deadline. Now comes the hard part, waiting for 3-4 weeks for a decision! Fingers crossed!!

    I know you guys are nervous... I was before I got accepted. But it might be as little as 2 weeks before you hear something. My suggestion is to set up your phone to receive your USF email. That way you will get that message right after it is sent.

    You have now reached the very worst part of getting into nursing school..... THE WAIT!

    Good luck to you all!

    Thanks PalmHarborMom! Did you have to do a resume when you did your application? I thought I remember seeing someone talk about it, but I looked the application up and down a million times and couldn't find a spot for the resume.. only the writing sample. Thanks!

    That's what I kept hearing too but I didn't see anything anywhere on the site about a resume.

    I seriously thought I was missing something, but I didn't see anything about a resume. I wrote it up about a month ago and spent a lot of time editing it. I was surprised when I didn't see a spot to upload one. Oh well, better to be safe than sorry Good luck to you! This wait is going to be hard lol

    Haha I know right. I said oh well. And also I'm not sure if I wasn't suppose to sent records of my volunteer hours because I did. I mailed it to them.
