UF is my top choice. & I just shadowed one in the ER. They go in the room and everything just like doctors but if they need a second opinion then they ask the dr to take a look. Also, they just kinda run by the dr what they are going to do to the pt and the dr just signs off on it. However, the dr does trauma alerts, not the pa in the ER I shadowed at. But there are trauma PAs at some hospitals. Nursing and PA is very different. The PAs kinda give orders to the nurses from what I saw such as "go give the patient this med, ect" The nursing/PA relationship seemed kinda similar to a nurse and dr
Just to let you guys know I have decided to go a different direction (PA school) so I am now working towards that. Ergo, I will not be applying so one less person to view as competition. Good luck everyone (:
I have to wait for my audit to get complete to do the application. They are being slow and I had to resend in my final transcript.
I am set to shadow a PA soon and I have a feeling that may be more my thing but I am going to apply to the nursing program just in case I shadow one and do not like it. If I do enjoy the PA profession (which I think I will, I would focus in emergency medicine), then I would probably just get my bachelors in sociology and work as a CNA while I am in school since the course is only 6 weeks long. That way I would have a few years experience as a CNA and I could probably get a better GPA in sociology since so many people have said nursing is hard. It would also give me the chance to take some courses that UF says will give me a competitive edge like immunology. Also, I do not want to take a spot of someone who hasa lifelong nursing dream. I shadowed a nurse anesthetist and they make more money but the job outlook is not very good in FL because there are so many CRNA schools. IT was not bad though.
Yeah I am kinda starting to reconsider the whole DSC thing because of the time. I am actually starting to look into being a PA possibly and if I decide to do that then the time I would save doing UCF's prgram could help me graduate PA school faster.My big reason to do DSC was I thought it would be a little easier to help me maintain a good GPA but now it sounds like it might be just as hard as UCF's program. From what you have gathered, does UCF and DSC seem to be about the same when it comes to difficulty level
I am also going to apply to the concurrent program and Daytona State College's AA nursing program because it is 4 semesters and then I could do UCF's online RN-BSN program while I work as an RN. It's a good option for me because I want to be a nurse anesthetist so I need a minimum of 1 yr ICU experience so if I go to Daytona State College I could start working faster and reach a year in the ICU quicker. Your scores make you have a really good shot as DSC nursing program if it is something you are interested in. The application to the school is easy and there is no application fee. Also, going to DSC & then doing the RN-BSN is cheaper.
to CNicole6: The GPA is kinda low but the TEAS is rlly good so you have a pretty good shot because the TEAS may make up for your GPA. What is your pre-req GPA because that is important? Also, I got that email too & that makes me nervous because you will be walking into the interview knowing your future depends on it. Have you applied yet? I am waiting for my final grades to be put into the system which should be in one to two weeks before I apply
I am probably going to get my ASN from DSN and then do this program. I am going to set up a meeting w/ the advisor. I think I may be able to do it in 2 semesters but you have started it by now so what do you think? Any info would be great
Went to the mailbox and there it was....a beautiful white envelope.
I opened it to read the most wonderful words....
So much to do, and all in a month.
NOW, the REAL work begins!
Good luck to all who are still waiting their letters. Hope you hear good news, soon.
I am a prenursing student attending UCF Orlando Campus. I am applying this summer to Cocoa Beach and Daytona Campuses to start Spring 2013! Eeek! I know there have been other forums regarding previous admissions to the program that have helped me to figure where I stand. I thought it would be nice to have a chance to meet each other, talk about our scores, and answer or ask questions regarding the application process!
