Well hey Joie. Thank you for your reply.
I was surprised to see that the application is, in fact, available! I thought it was supposed to be open on September 1st (which, coincidentally, is my 24th birthday! Haha). But, anyway, I was just thinking about what I was going to put in my personal statement, which is always a fun process. I started the application this evening, but it seemed so daunting, especially because I thought I had at least this week to prepare! Time to collect letters of recommendations (and I am lucky enough to know a few nurses, too!)
I work for a non-profit, multi-service organization and they happened to have an internship for a nursing student available and were more than happy to let someone who already worked for them give it a shot and I went for the trial run and really enjoyed it. They asked me to come back until I start school! So I'll have a good year until I hopefully start back at Stony Brook.
I went to SBU for my first undergraduate degree in Psychology. SBU was a great experience (and I transferred from Boston University) and I much preferred it over BU.
Anyways, would love to stay in touch with some of you guys here... it would be great to know some people that could potentially be classmates in June
