JHU ABSN Fall 2013 - page 2
Hi everyone! I was looking to see if this thread was already started, and I haven't found anything---which is suprising. I applied to JHU, among 6 other ABSN programs. I've heard back from 3, but am... Read More
Feb 13, '13Thanks cnp2012 for that link! I currently have a pending CNA license in WA state, but I suppose I will need to get one in Maryland if I go there. I'm definitely interested in working as a CNE, if not just for the opportunity to get an "in" at the hospital.
I second that bummer CareQueen. I'm currently working in patient safety and quality at a physician's group practice, and I would have liked to have been given the opportunity to talk more about that, but what are you going to do. I suppose we will just have to wait and see. I talked to one school about extending the deadline, and they gave me an extra week---unfortunately that wasn't enough time. I put down a deposit at the UW (deadline is this friday) but I'm still holding out for JHU. It's nauseating to think about "throwing away" $500, but people told me to just tack it on to "tuition" costs.
CNP2012--I didn't apply to any of the bsn-to msn program bc I'm not sure what area I want to go into yet, but do you know if bsn students are eligible to apply for a msn programs while in school? I know that is an option for other like UPenn.
Feb 13, '13I'm about to graduate from Hopkins. Aside from the merit-based, there is also a needs-based scholarship, which you have to apply for. Also, there is a stipend from the govt that is awarded to "underrepresented" groups in nursing, e.g., men, racial minorities, etc. That one, you have no say over whether you receive it; someone (not sure who that someone is) nominates you.
Students get CNA jobs from Hopkins or any other hospitals around the area by applying. You should search for "Student Nurse." I got an externship from GBMC that way, and several students in my class are CNAs at Univ of MD and Hopkins.
Feb 13, '13Quote from cnp2012Many students share books. Renting is also an option. Some don't even buy them at all and get by without them totally fine. I have barely spent anything on my books and supplies.If you are smart you wont spend nearly wha tthey project for housing, travel, books etc. I remember having "sticker shock" at the price but it really is worth it.
Feb 13, '13Great points db2xs. In addition there are also the HRSA grants through the federal government, the application process is a lot of hoops to jump through but it can be well worth it. AnnieBopannie you most certainly can apply to a masters programs while still in the BSN portion.
Feb 13, '13You guys are such a wealth of information! I really appreciate all of this.
What's it like to get a job at JHH after the BSN program?
Feb 22, '13Quote from AnnieBopannieOf course you can apply to an MSN option while in the BSN program....many of my classmates are in the process of doing that right now.

Final Practicum = 168 hours
Apr 8, '13Hey Everyone!
I just got my financial aid package and it looks like I will need to find a private lender. Since the school is not able to disclose any particular lender, do any of you (accepted/current students) know where to start? How to go about that process? This is my first time having to get a private loan, so I am a bit daunted.
