    Kind of update? I called today to update my application to include a second choice track (I only applied for FNP initially, and now I'm waffling on what I want to do). She said she would update my application to reflect that - which indicates to me that they do NOT process applications as they come in, since mine was submitted about a month ago. I would think if it's already been reviewed, I wouldn't be able to make changes. I bet they will begin reviewing them after the deadline next week. Good luck to all! The wait is getting shorter haha.

    I agree!! I was looking at their application last night, and I chose not to apply based solely on the transcript entry. Feels like "double charting" to me. Ain't nobody got time for that.

    I wish we could find out sooner!! But it makes sense that they wait until the deadline to make official decisions. I also applied to Georgia Southwestern and to Walden. I got accepted to Walden, as I gather pretty much everyone does. I really prefer to attend a brick and mortar school, though, so I hope I get into UAB or GSW. UAB is my first choice, but I'd be perfectly happy with GSW as well.

    I like it fine, but it's also the only hospital I've ever worked in, so I have nothing to compare it to. And yes, I think you're correct that you will hear positives and negatives about any place. What track did you apply for? FNP or AGACNP? Or something else? Just figured with your experience it would be one of those two. Forgive me if you've already said.

    I'm not sure about my GPA. I know my last 60 hours was all As and Bs but I'm too lazy to calculate haha. Been an RN for five years, three and a half in ER with a1.5 year stint in endoscopy. Hey Grady, I work at Kennestone! ☺️

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm curious if anyone who is in or has completed the FNP program at GSW is still around? I've applied for the spring semester 2018 start.

    Hi! I applied to the FNP track. They don't do interviews. From browsing prior threads, we shouldn't expect to hear until December. The anticipation is killing me, too!! I have a lot of friends/coworkers who have recently completed or are currently pursuing FNP or AGACNP in this program. Hoping to join them soon!!

    I don't know what the difference in an NA and a CNA is. If this facility is willing to train you, they probably don't expect you to have much experience.
    But your real-life experience is certainly equivalent to the duties of a CNA, so that should show them you are at least willing to do those tasks and learn more as well. Good luck!

    I'm a fan of Old Navy's Perfect Tanks. I love the way they fit! They're tight enough under my scrub tops that they aren't bulky, don't need to be adjusted much, and are plenty long enough to keep my lower back from hanging out when I bend over. You could easily tuck them in as well. Good luck!

    I think I generally waited about a week after my interview to call and say, "Hi, this is Letsgomets31. I interviewed with you on this date for this position, and I just wanted to follow up and see if you have any more information at this time." I feel like it shows you are really interested and motivated to get the job, so you will probably be a motivated worker when they hire you. I find that usually I would get a response along the lines of, "We'll contact you by this date." If that date came and went with no news, if get in touch with them again. "Just wanted to follow up" is my favorite phrase. I feel like it shows interest without demanding an answer. Maybe there are recruiters out there who would disagree, but hey - I'm employed! Good luck!

    I can't comment about the Shepherd Center specifically (except to say I know they do amazing work), but I think you should call the recruiter to follow up. I've gotten a few jobs over other candidates because I continued to follow up and really show interest in the position. There is a way to do it without going overboard, while still showing interest. Good luck with everything!

    CNA or student nurse extern.

    True. The contingency was only offered to the few ADNs that were hired - which means only people who were already working there as techs.

    I got a position at a hospital with the condition that I get my BSN later. I had also been working at this faculty during school. Some of my classmates were able to get hospital positions with no conditions. It depends on the hospital system.

    I am pretty sure I work for the organization in question, based on the OP's previous posts. Yes, you will be automatically rejected until you can retest. We hired a bunch of new staff recently, and our manager reminded us in staff meetings that if we wanted to refer someone, they HAD to pass that assessment, or their application would automatically be rejected. I had to take it too, it's no fun! Best of luck to you next time!
