I accepted a position on the Neuro ICU. We'll be starting before we know it!
I've heard that people who made the first cut were contacted about 2 weeks ago. Apparently they are still awarding a few more scholarships but not many. I haven't heard back so I'm assuming I was not chosen.
I'm sorry, I don't think I understand why Columbia is a clear choice over Hopkins? Do you mind elaborating? Also, since it looks like you are already in the profession, what makes attending the best school you can get into worth the cost over an in-state school? Do you see hiring and promotion decisions in favor of nurses who have graduated from these top-tier schools over nurses who have not?
I would also love to hear people's experiences with the traditional BSN program at Hopkins! I have recently decided on Hopkins over Columbia (probably one of my hardest decisions ever)! What negatives have you heard about Hopkins' program? I'm still trying to justify the price tag of any private nursing program as opposed to going to an in-state school...any feedback on that would also be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
What are people doing for housing? How is off-campus apartment searching going??
Ok, great! Thanks!!
Question!! I really hope I'm wrong about this, but did they say at accepted student day that if we are awarded an external scholarship that our Pre-licensure Undergad Scholarship will be decreased? For example, if I get 5k in a private external scholarship, Columbia would give me 5k less in that scholarship?
