- 0Mar 31, '12 by jocy_anneThanks Kelsea!!! It is a very big relief! I have a lot of administrative and volunteer experience (mission trips, working with adolescents, etc.), but don't have any medical experience. The fact that you have a CNA license, have shadowed multiple medical professions, and have a Bachelor's in Dietetics will all greatly help you as you pursue an ABSN! However, I think it's also important to get good grades in your prereq courses, since I know most schools really tend to look at those grades the most. As long as you keep doing what you're doing, I think you'll be a shoe-in for next year!
- 0Apr 2, '12 by jocy_anneIf anyone is interested, I created a Facebook group for our APW class. It would be nice to start getting to know each other over the next few months while we wait for the program to begin! I think I called it "Thomas Jefferson University APW Class of 2014" and I did make it a closed group, so you may need to send me your info so we can become FB friends and I can add you to the group. PM me if you're interested!
- 1Apr 16, '12 by jocy_anneHi Tinana! I had my interview a couple weeks ago, and I was sooooo nervous before I went in. The second I sat down, though, the interview was really more like a conversation and that really helped to calm my nerves. The most important advice I can give you is to be real. They do these interviews so that they can gauge who is really passionate about the field and the program, so as long as you really have a heart for Nursing, I think you'll do really well!
Go to the interview prepared with any questions you have about the school, program, etc. That was the first thing I was asked, and I asked A LOT of questions lol. And make sure you can really articulate your story and what it is that made you want to go into the Nursing field. As long as you're honest and speak from the heart, I think you'll be ok! I'm at the chiropractor's office now so I can't post too much (I'm using the fancy new iPhone allnurses app!) but the most important thing to remember is BREATHE and stay calm! :-)
What time is your interview tomorrow? I will be sure to say some prayers around that time for you! We're always looking for new APW students on here, so I can't wait to hear how it goes! Good luck!!!
- 0Thank you so much!!! My interview is at 2:30 p.m. I am honest, I've never wanted anything so badly as this, and the more time I spend taking "nursing like courses" the more I like it...
I hope to get a fast response afterwards!!! Waiting for admissions answers is killing me. I think I've gained like five pounds since I've started applying for nursing schools ... haha! I will let you know how it goes!!!
