Does anyone here have experience applying to the MN or DNP program at Duke?
I am in my first year of the BSN program at University of Washington and will be moving with my partner to North Carolina after graduation next year. I will be applying to Duke's MSN or DNP program for the FNP track. (I am leaning toward the DNP, given the "big switch" in 2015)
So I have a few questions:
1. Does any body have any stats on applicants/students to the DNP program?
2. Do you need to take the GRE to apply for the school of nursing financial aid?
3. I will not have any RN experience and I know they say it is recommended but not required. Does any one have a feel for if they do take BSN grads without any RN experience?
I think that is mostly it. I guess also, for anyone at all who with the Duke School of Nursing, do you like the program?

Hello anny08 -
I am glad to hear the program is going well for you. I was accepted for the MSN in the FNP specialty a few weeks ago and am awaiting the committee's decision on the DNP. What you are saying about delaying the DNP is interesting - it is something I too am considering (though the committee may make the decision for me if they don't accept me for the DNP). I am interested in getting out to practice sooner rather than later and also wonder if my experience in the DNP program may be richer if I have some NP practice under my belt. We shall see!
Were you in the first or second round of FNP decisions? Also at what point in the review process were you contacted for an interview?
