I am starting this thread for anyone who has applied for UMSON spring 2014 CNL class. I thought this would be a good place for us all to get to know each other and keep everyone updated on our status. Please share your thoughts, anxieties, hopes and goals for applying to this program. I am particularly interested in knowing what attracted you to this program as opposed to traditional BSN or RN. Also, please share your background? Also, current students please feel free to add any insight to enlighten us all.
Little about me, my undergraduate degree was in Political Science & Philosophy. I worked in the field of banking for seven years and then as an office manager for a radiology facility for 5.5 years. Working in healthcare field I was exposed to every aspect of healthcare management and administration, but I lacked the clinical background. I am gravitating towards family practice and very interested in providing primary care services. I want to work with the underserved populations. I like the CNL program because it is a master's level program which will give me a chance to elevate my education while giving me the hands on training to be a nurse.
Looking forward to getting to know you all. If you find this thread please introduce yourselves and share a little something about yourself
