    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I'll be seeing you in September!!! Did you meet with Tiffany Friedman yet??
    Thank you, congrats to you as well!! No, I didn't meet with anyone yet. Still waiting for my letter after receiving two separate verbal confirmations I got in. So I guess I will know what I am doing next once I get that letter. I was told that it was on the way and I should have it next week.

    You'll definitely get it within a week. The letter directs you to their website: Accepted Students - Graduate | Future Students | Pace University so def check it out.

    Save your pennies, b/c we need to get a lot done before we start:
    $200 deposit
    CPR for infants, children, and adults
    Background check
    Drug test
    Physical

    ***** said Orientation is in the summer and they'll give us more details about books, scrubs (Specific Pace scrubs), and our nursing kit (not sure what that is, but may include our stethoscope)

    Congrats again! This is so very exciting!!

    If you are accepted into NYU, you do not need to re-apply to get into the master's portion. You simply need to submit a brief letter/declaration as to why you would like to continue your onto the Master's portion at NYU once you completed your BSN. If I were you I would consider NYU over Pace, only due to scholarships NYU gives their MSN students grants that covers their tuition. Pace seems to offer loans

    Does anyone know what the total cost of Pace's 1 year program is?


    Also, looking at the NYU website: "Prior to entering the specialty courses of a respective nursing master's program, at least one year of full-time clinical experience as a registered nurse is required for all master's programs, except for the following programs: Nursing Education requires three years of clinical experience as a registered nurse; Advanced Practice Nursing: Pediatrics requires one year of relevant clinical experience as a registered nurse in pediatrics."

    It looks like for NYU, you have to have worked as an RN for a year before entering into the MS portion of the program but for Pace, you are able to enter into the MS portion following the BS portion.

    But there is only one kind of MS specialization for Pace right?..the Nurse Practitioner... NYU offers so many others. Im still debating =/

    does anyone know if there is way to check our application status online or do we have to just keep calling the graduate admission office?

    The Cdp one year program is about $16,048 per semester. Check this link for Pace's tution Tuition & Fees | Future Students | Pace University.

    Pace has a Masters in Arts for Nursing Education and a Masters in Science for Family Nurse Practioner. I believe you have to be an RN for atleast a year before entering the programs. Have any of you looked into Columbia's ETP program they offer so many more options for the MS portion!!!! I am thinking of apply to Columbia as well. I know it's way more expensive than Pace but Columbia's program offers way more. Please check out theirwebsite aswell.

    I believe that is incorrect regarding being an RN for a year. You can start the masters portion whenever you want. They made this quite clear at the info session. It is a combined degree and if you chose to, you can complete the program in 3 years if you stay full time. An upside to choosing Pace over Columbia is that Pace does not require the GRE's while Columbia does. Not to mention the cost. But I see what you mean about options for the masters portion. Columbia does have more.
