    Can any nurses who have done the Duke ABSN program give insite on how to suceed in the program. Particularly how to prepare, how many hours per week to study, the best way to study for certain classes, and things we should know before going into the program that we do not know about particular classes and such? Thanks

    I've heard the group interview is more like an activity? I would love to hear more details about it though. I know that we have two interviews for the solo one. I also interview the 22nd! I wish I was going last so I would be fresh on their minds, but the 22nd is the only date that works with my schedule

    Being first could be a good thing too though!!! We could be the first people they see so they are excited and then everyone else has to meet the standards we set! Haha!

    I'm looking forward to meeting the other applicants interviewing on Friday (the 22nd)! I'm trying to convince myself that I am NOT nervous...but I clearly am.

    I retracted my interview at Duke...hope this opens a spot for somebody on the wait list!

    Yes, maspsu08, you might have helped me out here. I just got removed from the waitlist and now I've got an interview. 1 week notice until the interview!! holy cow! Why did you retract your offer?

    joe_mamma - I was accepted into the second degree program at penn state and also the bsn/msn at upenn. Also waiting to hear from jhu. At the end of the day, even if accepted into Duke, I probably would choose one of these 3 programs over Duke.

    Penn State is my second home and the program is financially a great deal (~35k in-state tuition for bsn) and upenn and jhu have the added luxury of being placed into a master's program from the start. I have no desire in going through this application/interview process again, ha.

    I withdrew from the program as well. I had an interview date for the 4th. Hopefully someone else can take my spot off the wait list.
