    I got in. My question is do I have to reapply if I want to pursue my education further like to become a FNP?
    You will have to complete a post-masters certificate so you will have to apply to schools who offer those. A lot waive the GRE and some other things if you have a masters already. I want to become an AG-ACNP so that is my plan if I get into JHU. I applied very late for the spring semester and was wait listed (and was informed by mail that the spring cohort is officially full), so I'm hoping to hear something (good news or bad) after Christmas. I received a Christmas card so maybe that's a good sign.

    So I have to reapply for the FNP program? I rather go to a direct entry program then having to reapply? What would the advantage be to go to Johns Hopkins instead?

    That's my understanding. JHU offers a CNL degree, which is still a Master's degree but it is a generalized degree. The advantages depend on what you are looking for ultimately. It puts you a step closer to your FNP but not totally. With the CNL you still enter nursing practice at a higher level and you will have greater responsibilities than what a BSN would offer you. However you are still limited compared to an NP, such as writing prescriptions and such. You're closer to an advanced practice degree but you would still have to go through more school and application processes should you go to JHU, and I don't believe JHU offers NP degree's that are not DNP designations.

    I applied to MGH and Vanderbilt for their direct entry MSN-nurse practitioner programs because once I graduate (should I get in) I will have the "title" of AG-ACNP if you will. I applied to JHU on a whim honestly, even though I do not want to stop my education / career at the CNL level but to have JHU on your resume is significant at least to me.

    True but at the same time no cares where you graduate in the nursing field all they care about is wether you got your degree or not. That is why i might not go to JHU bec they don't have a direct entry and i am not interested in reapplying bec I am already accepted to some direct entry programs. I have to call them up regarding this, maybe if get a couple of people to petition this we can possible get this done anyone interested in going?

    Some might care, some might not but just the name alone will catch more eyes than a non-known school. If I get into the direct entry programs I applied to, that is what I will choose over JHU but I will be happy with both. Do what's best for you and your career, and save that spot for someone who does want to go to Johns Hopkins.

    No, but I haven't gotten my packet yet. I'm assuming it will be in there.
    Has anyone gotten a phone call yet? I'm in Thailand doing some traveling, so I sent them an email to see if they would be willing to do a WebEx or other web based call so I could still talk to them. My mail is being forwarded to my in-laws, but they'll send me pictures once they receive it!

    According to my estimate it is about $121,135.00

    Johns Hopkins School of Nursing MSN-Direct Entry:

    5 semesters
    - First semester – 15 credits
    - Second semester – 15 credits
    - Third semester – 13 credits
    - Fourth semester – 16 credits
    - Fifth semester – 12 credits
    Total credits: 71 credits x 1591 per credit = $112,961.00

    Matriculation fee: 500
    Health insurance: 3911
    Health fee: 474
    Books/Supplies: 1200
    Loan fees: 1584
    Uniforms: 505

    Final cost: 112,961 + 500 + 3911 + 474 + 1200 + 505 = $121,135.00
