I am very interested in applying to UNH's Direct Entry Master's of Nursing Program. I have seen a few older threads discussing this program, and was wondering if any current students or graduates from this program could offer any further insight? The program is for students with a degree in another area, and I was wondering how much you were able to utilize your first degree in this program and in the nursing field in general? I have my B.S. in Psychology and would love to use my love and knowledge for psychology in my nursing career.
Also, how competitive is the program? I had a 3.8 GPA during my Bachelor's but am lacking in professional experience. My husband is in the military and will be getting out soon, so I plan on trying to get a position or volunteer in a health care setting before I apply to gain more experience and knowledge as well as increase my chances of getting accepted. Any advice that anyone could give me would be so very appreciated!
