    Hi jrsweet - I think the best advice I could give is to be able to answer why you want to be a nurse and why you would like to go to Jefferson. You will be asked those questions. The interview was really a positive experience for me - it was basically a conversation. Be prepared to ask some questions about the program too. And just enjoy yourself! Wishing you the best of luck!!!!

    Hello, I also have been accepted to TJU for Fall 2013's APW program. I am planning to attend if I can get my finances in order. I am also planning to live on campus in the campus apartments nearby. What is everyone's background? I chose the 2 year route because I don't have a strong medical background (I have a B.S. in Biology, concentrated in animal/wildlife courses, and have been volunteering in a hospital but I mainly do paperwork.)

    I am excited about this program but I haven't met any students in it and am curious how their experience of it has been. Has anyone met current/former TJU APW students?

    Hi mk989 - Congratulations on your acceptance! Like you, I chose the 2-year APW program because I do not have a medical background and felt APW would be a better fit for me than the one year FACT program. I am also looking forward to beginning the program, but have not met any current or former students. It would be nice to hear from anyone currently in the program. Also, like you, I am trying to get finances in order! Hope to see you in the fall!

    Also at first I was a little saddened that the program starts so far away from now, but after my research on how to afford said program I am VERY glad the start is farther away than summer (more time to figure this out). Is anyone going to try living in TJU's on-campus apartments. I had a tour of them and was very excited (actually I put in for Orlowitz). Hope it all works out, and hope to see everyone next month for accepted students day.
