Hi, Years ago I met with the director of this program and really loved it. Over the past 2+ years I've been doing the prereqs and volunteering at a hospital. It began to go to the backburner because I felt an accel BSN would be... Read More

    I read that you need to work as an RN for 6-9 months after getting your BSN. Does anyone know if they help you find a job? Do you work for a clinical site that they place you in? I am a bit concerned that I wouldn't be able to find a job in order to continue on with the MSN.

    They specifically say they don't help you find a job, but I'm pretty sure every one of their students has been able to find one. It took one of my friends about 3-4 months after finishing the BSN portion to find a job.

    Hello! It looks like this thread hasn't been updated for a while but I've been reading these boards for a while and thought I'd check something out-

    Has anyone heard back from Northeastern about an interview yet? I applied in middle December for the Jan 15 deadline and haven't heard from them yet. I'm starting to really worry I won't get an interview! Has anyone gotten a call, or maybe they are still looking at apps?

    Hi Dstewart! Thanks so much for getting back to me. I went to NU for undergrad but I actually don't know anyone else who's applying for this cycle so I didn't really know what the timeline would be like. Do you know when the interviews are being scheduled? Good luck, I hope you get one!

    Hi Ijustwanttoknow, I saw on one thread yesterday that someone had been offered an interview and they said they think they will be making more calls this week and next week so don't get too nervous yet! I haven't heard anything else either. I'm also an NU undergrad, finishing up this semester =). Also, are you interested in the online option as well? I feel like I heard in the past that sometimes people are offered a position in the online cohort without an interview. Keep me updated!

    Hi hellosun, thanks for the info! Do you happen to have a link for where you found out about other current applicants? I've been googling for a conversation like that for a while now to no avail but I'd love to hear what other people are up to.

    About the online option, I didn't indicate on my app that I would be interested in the online classes (I've taken them before and I didn't think it was the best choice for me personally). I understand from speaking with faculty that the online option is a bit easier to get into though, maybe because it's newer? Did you apply for online?

    Congrats for graduating this year! I graduated in '08 and have been working since then, and ready to get back to school! Was NEU so excited to beat BU in the beanpot? I was so excited from over here in Cambridge

    Hi ijustwanttoknow, no problem! I just typed 'northeastern' into the search engine for this site and it was one of the links listed below that.

    I've also heard that the online option is easier to get into and I think it is just for the reason that anyone would probably rather take classes in person. I would definitely love to talk to someone already in the program to see how they've been handling it. I applied to that option just because I know how competitive the program is and I want to keep my options open!

    And thank you! It doesn't feel real yet haha... Congratulations to you too! What have you been doing for work since then? And yes we were!! It's about time =)
