    Hi there! I'm applying to the ABSN to PMHNP. I'm hoping for the DNP, as it would open up some more research and public health opportunities in the future. But, two of the other programs I applied for are ABSN-MSN. I'm unsure of my cumulative undergrad GPA, as I took classes across a lot of institutions. I have a 4.0 in the prerequisites, but I still need to take genetics. I work as a research assistant in an Immunology Clinic, primarily working on substance use studies in a population with HIV, and as a personal assistance and support service worker with children with autism. I don't have any nursing certifications.

    I think volunteering at a low income clinic is fantastic experience. A local clinic here has a number of people who volunteer who are accepted into nursing, PA, and medical programs. So, I think that's a great choice - for both experience and to "boost" a resume.

    I was going to apply to the msn, but decided on the dnp for the same reasons as you. My undergrad cum gpa is 3.92 and my prerequisites gpa is 4.0

    I actually applied to the nurse midwifery program I took A&P 1 and 2 saw someone mention taking 3, I did not see that anywhere as a requirement, nor as a chance for any schools where I currently live. Any info on that would be great! I've also taken statistics, nutrition, and developmental psych, just gotta take a course that has genetics in it and micro.
    A&P is split into 3 parts for people going to schools that are on the quarter system! So if your school only offers A&P 1 and 2 you probably go to a semester school and got all the same information just in those two classes instead of 3.

    Thank you, makes sense. I keep forgetting those types of schools.

    I actually made a mistake - thought I had a 4.0 in my prereqs but received an A- in Statistics! Oops!

    I can't wait for the call/notification of updates. This wait is REALLY tough.

    So what was your gpa? Thought an A is an A is a A. The waiting is tough. Wondering if you're gonna get called for an interview. Fingers crossed for us all.
