- 0Jun 8, '12 by SpydarwebHey Guys! first off... CONGRATULATIONS to all ye who have been admitted into the CNL program. I could not be of help during your admissions process, however, I am open to any questions re the program. I am a second semester CNL student at UMB. It is UMB, not UMD - UMD is the College Park campus. Just thought I'd point that out, so people don't get confused.:spin:

I have not found a place to live. This is really stressing me out! I have a friend from undergrad that is from Baltimore and he said the area around the school is not the best It is more of a up and coming area. He proposed Towson, Owings Mills areas since they are close to the train. His worries were not able to drive within the city if it were to snow and the streets aren't plowed. Have you had any luck? Sorry it took me so long to respond; but I just so happen to finally comes across this post.

I was happy to read you can defer up to a year. I might apply for the fall of 2013 and defer a semester if I get in. I want one last great vacation before starting an intense program.
Congrats to everyone who has gotten in!

First of, anything is doable when you set your goals & work towards achieving them . However I will not advise you to consider working full-time while undertaking this program. It is rigorous...especially the 16months route - 18 graduate credits per semester. What makes it even worse is the fact there are research papers for almost every course. Workload is heavier than for the BSNs.
As per clinical hours, it all depends on the course. For the 1st semester there's fundamentals with just 45hrs; 90hrs each for pediatric, obstetric, psychiatric, and community health; 120hrs for adult health (med surge) and 315hrs for final semester Practicum.
A good statement of purpose will look good in your application package. Good luck in your endeavors and do not hesitate to contact me with any more questions. Sorry it took me this long to reply to your post. I think it will be better for you to me PM me.
