My interview went great! I found out last Monday that I was accepted to the program!! Here is the run-down on the interview and admission stuff. This round, 30+ people applied to the eline program and 9-10 were accepted. Ten is the maximum number of people that the program accepts each semester (summer, fall, & spring). There were only 10 people at my interview so I assume they mainly interview their selected candidates to make sure they like you in person. The interview was kinda like an orientation, we were taught about financial aid and school resources. We also got a chance to ask faculty and current eline students many questions. This was all done in the morning. Right before lunch we went to the computer lab and they had us do a writing exercise with a nursing prompt. They gave us like 45min to type it and then they printed it out and gave it to the people who would interview us. After lunch, which they served to us, we were interviewed individually by a group of people (faculty, staff & students). The questions were fairly simple, just get to know you questions. With a few dilemma situation questions. I recommend asking questions at the end.
They made their admission decisions that Wednesday evening and had letters out by Friday (which I got on Monday). School starts on May 31st and registration started on April 4th. With my acceptance packet was a check list of things that you must have before class starts. Such as $100 deposit, CPR by American Heart Association, current immunization record, transcripts, and criminal background check.
I learned somethings at the interview. The quickest that the program has ever been completed is 18 months (that is school work and clinicals). If you want to complete it this quickly, they recommend you have don't work. Pharmacology is now a prereq and so you do not have to complete this again during the program, which shaves of some time. Clinicals are the tricky part depending on where you are located.
Please let me know if you have anymore questions. I will try to keep you updated throughout the program. I want to complete it ASAP! My goal is 15-18 months, so we will see if it is do-able.
