    Hello- I applied to the 2013 FACT program and have a phone interview coming up... Are there any current students/applicants that would be willing to share some advice or let me know what to expect? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi SuebNP!

    I interviewed with the program in person last month. It was a very casual interview with an Admissions Counselor (not faculty). My best advice would be to know the differences in roles between NP/CBS/PA/MD because they may ask you "why not PA school?" They also asked "Why Jefferson, specifically?"

    The experience was a positive one in general; you'll be great, don't worry!!

    It is a very casual interview, haven't heard of anybody that got an interview and not accepted. Just make sure why you choose Jefferson over other schools, why become a nurse (any inspirations?), what do know about the role of nurses, any clinical experiences that may relate to nursing? Good luck.

    Thank you so much for the advice! Interviews always make me nervous, but I'm relieved their process seems more relaxed.

    Thank you FingersCross'd and Stellaire for the encouraging advice. I had my phone interview with an admissions counselor this morning, and got my email acceptance! You were right, the interview was extremely casual and overall, a great experience!

    Hello everyone! I was also accepted to this program and paid the deposit a few days ago. Does anyone know if there is a thread on FACT students in the MSN portion of the program? I would really love to hear what they have to say about it. Also...does anyone know when the first day of class is? I graduate in May and am just wondering how many days off I will have between programs.

    Hi Everyone, I was recently accepted for May 2014 and I'm looking to start getting my materials as well. Please let me know if any of you have books/ipad/etc that you'd like to sell or may know of any others who are looking to sell their things. Thanks a lot, and I hope everyone has a great end of the semester!
