    Congrats to all that got in. I just graduated in May from MCPHS worcester. Let me know if any of you have questions..I'd be happy to help answer anything.
    Hello Linds1334. Congrats. I'm thinking in applying for fall 2011 class. How is the program? Since the schedule is intense, I am afraid I won't have much time to study for exams. I live in Framingham it's going to take me at least 45 minutes to get there every day. Please any insight will be helpful. Hope hear from you soon!!!

    I applied for both MCPHS and MGH. I feel that MCPHS was worth it. The professors are well trained and knowledgeable. I went into the program having zero healthcare experience and I do feel prepared for being an RN. Every nursing program teaches you the essentials of how to become a novice nurse. And this program does that and more. It is not for the weak hearted, it is a hard program that is time consuming and can be very stressful at times. Whenever I went to clinicals the staff there always had high words for student nurses from MCPHS. We are regarded as professional and prepared. I think this type of program is a great thing because of short time of the program and getting your BSN instead of an Associates. I hope this answers your questions, feel free to ask more.

    Hi Linds,

    I applied for fall 2011 and i got the decision letter telling me that i have been selected for an itnerview (i am def happy that it is an itnerview and nto a rejection letter) i assume that it means that i still have a chance. Crossing my fingers that i get in cause MCPHS is my first choice , i have heard a lot of great stuff about them , speciall the fact that they do such a great job preparing nurses for their first job , the fact that they have more hours of clinicals then most other programs drew my attention.
    My question to you is , have you or anyone you know had to attend an interview befor getting expected ? id idnt even know that they had an interview process

    Hello,

    Does anyone live in on campus housing? I'm stopping by for a visit on Friday (and probably hand in my deposit!), but I was told I'd be unable to take a peek inside the dorms. Just wondering what they were like!

    Hey melissa427 I just sent in my deposit a few days ago for January 2012 for the PostBacc BSN program. I also sent in the room reservation form, however I sent an email to the Residence Life Coordinator to ask if there were still student housing available. If not, I will have to live off campus. I heard that Newton Square is a pretty safe place and rather close to campus if driving.

    I have just been accepted into the MCPHS Worcester program for this fall (which I'm super excited about)! Would anybody from this recent class be able to tell me how the classes are going? Are they extremely difficult? Also how are clinicals? What is the best piece of advice you would give for an incoming student like myself?
    Thank you!
