    Hey do not confuse APCN with the staff nurse screening. APCN doesn't require applicants to have hospital work experience. The staff nurse screening doesn't require it either but it's one of the things that will be considered for ranking the applicants based on the letter I was given when I passed the panel interview.

    Is there any thing, (ie certificates, TOR, etc) that needs to be presented in order to get a dean's form for APCN program? Thanks!

    Just the PRC license. I went there today... I was number 16 lols. I came in too early while ironically I was thinking I wouldn't make it because it was already 6am when I got there.

    They were conducting the orientation for the newly hired staff nurses at the DNET office when we were allowed to come in. Oh how envy them. Hehe. Oh well I will make that scene in my mind as my motivation to persevere more and have more patience waiting for the right time. #almosttherebutnotquite

    Awww too bad. There were not so many applicants yesterday so Im not sure if they still have available Dean's form. Try calling PGH and asked to be transferred to DNET to ask.

    As far as I know, these are the steps for APCN.

    1. Getting a Dean's form.
    2. Submitting the requirements and getting the exam schedule.
    3. Interview? (oh I'm not really sure if APCN applicants still undergo interviews).
