    Did they call you or did they email you for the interview?

    For me I called them (***** was who I spoke to) to inquire about my application and she told me she was missing the NLN exam results. That is the strongest part of my application so was relieved she asked if I could fax the results sheet to her. I did and got an email the next day about an interview. So DEFINATELY recommend calling. I think mine was messed up because I took the exam under my maiden name and everything else is hyphenated with the new name.

    Thank everyone. I called her and they didn't get my new score for the exam so she asked me to fax it. I asked her for my application status and she said it was under review. It has been already 3 weeks no call or email. Im so nervous. I pray i get a call for an interview. I wanna email her but i don't wanna get on there bad said either. What do you think or should i wait it out. Do you know anyone that got an interview who got a score of 119? I know it pretty horrible but i really hope i get an interview

    Had my interview today. They were super nice. Shte made me feel very comfortable. She asked my greatest accomplishment,what were my greatest challenges, how would I describe what nursing is to someone that only had the image of nurse Jackie or ER. They will definitely ask questions related to your essay. Overall it was more her telling me about the program and what to expect.

    Rnjt86 no she did not. She did say that the committee will be meeting again in 2 weeks. I think you should call or email **. Again.

    I had my interview on Tuesday. They said there are only two people who conduct interviews and they are only half way through the applicant pool. Over 1,000 people applied and they have 130 spots I believe she said. She also said they are asking some other staff members to start interviewing for them to speed the process along. The board meets every two weeks on most recent interviews. I would not be nervous about the interview as JBerkel said she makes you very comfortable and does a lot to help guide the conversation. I got a tour and a really great facility. I'm pretty pumped.
