- 1Aug 16, '13 by CupofTea123Hello, I'm considering the Part Time option for January 2014. Would really like to hear from people who are part-way through or have finished the program on the Part Time schedule. Specifically, how many hours per week did you need to put in? And did you work while you were taking classes? clinicals? I am basing my financials on working 30h/wk until clinicals start, and then cutting to 20h/wk. Do you think that's realistic? or would I need to work less? (formerly stellar student w/ a 50yo brain). Thanks in advance for any info.
- 0Aug 23, '13 by TashaLPN2006RN2012I just began my application process to Georgetown. I talked with the admissions rep and it sounds like the way I want to go. I will have 16mo of GI bill 100% left in December when I'm done with my BSN (I've been an RN for a year and a half already) through Excelsior. I like the interactive online format the most and find it interesting as i'm a huge audio/visual learner! =) I'm a little concerned about the CV as most of my hands on clinical experience was as an LPN, and as an RN i've only done case management/disease management. I do not have a lot of volunteer time and/or community service either. (Hubby was in the Army and the only true volunteer stuff I did was for my kids school, and for the battalions' my husband was assigned to) My GPA is decent at a 3.6, not exactly sure what my sciences GPA is though. The video essay/introduction scares me too, i'm better interacting with someone over the phone or face to face not just blabbering on. =) Looking for admission for april/may 2014 time frame.

- 1Sep 26, '13 by CKPierceI applied already and hope to start FNP program -part time Jan 2014 and my application was under review as of yesterday. I am looking forward to being notified of my acceptance or not. Anyone else applying for Jan 2014? I expect that I will be online watching recorded lectures and attending lectures at least 12-14 hrs a week. I plan to work full time and study with the little remaining time left every evening. I read that once you start clinical you do not spend that much time in lectures. The first few semesters will probably be the hardest but I am thankful that it fits perfectly in my schedule and lifestyle the way it does. I look forward to seeing other nurses in the program that are in this thread -assuming I am good enough for Georgetown If I am not then that is okay too maybe UC will take me.
- 1Oct 7, '13 by TashaLPN2006RN2012CK did you hear anything about acceptance yet? Uggghhh My application went in on Oct 3rd and got the myaccess email on Oct 4th saying it went to review. Adviser said three weeks or so before I find out. I applied for May 2014 start date though so who knows how long that will take to find out. I'm super nervous! =) I plan on leaving my full time M-F job and work Fri, Sat, Sun 2nd shift as most places around here that's considered "full time" work, especially the nursing homes. I hate to do it, but it will be easier for me during the week to get school work finished, and work on just the weekends i think. My back up plan is University of Cincinnati as well for their May start date =)
- 0Oct 10, '13 by TashaLPN2006RN2012nothing yet! =( I've been nervously checking my phone (email refresh button hates me right now) and logging into myaccess to see if maybe any changes posted there. It's been about a week for me, trying not to worry! I am pretty sure my Sciences GPA was a 3.4 or 3.5, my overall was 3.5, and my last 60 credits was 3.78. Just hoping that is enough to get me in!!! I also applied to University of Cincy though, I talked to admin rep there and she said I'd more than likely be accepted, but to get app in quickly due to the over abundence of applications coming in for Jan 14 start they are pushing those over to May 2014 start. They are a first come first serve, so if you make the cut you are automatically given a seat there. I think the overflow of applicants is making it tougher to get into a FNP program right now!!! South University is last on my list for FNP, i have talked to a few students who like it but #1 is a for-profit school, #2 program is fairly new & #3 it takes almost 28mo to complete as they only do one class at a time. Great for full time workers though, and I could maintain my job if that was the case. I have also looked at WGU for MSN in nursing education, then do a post-masters cert program. WGU i could finish in about 12mo, then do the post cert. I dunno, just gonna hang in there and hope I get one of my top two choices!!! I do know UC can take 6-8 wks to hear back though....T
