    Hi everyone! I took my PSB on march 22 and passed!! I was so relieved because it was one of the lasts tests that I could take to apply for this year. Just wondering about the essay part when putting together all of my stuff to send in with my application...like I read the mission statement and everything...does it have to be a certain length or amount of words?...also how long did it take those of you who got in to get your acceptance letter after sending in your application? thanks!!

    The essay is supposed to be 300-350 words and explain what being a nurse means to you. Just be honest and write from your heart. You generally hear something back about 2 weeks after everything has been received.

    Question for somebody already in the program: I only need to take Foundations during the 1st semester. Can anyone tell me about how many days a week I'll have class/clinicals? Thanks!

I was beyond excited when I found out I passed my psb. my eye would not stop twitching for like two weeks until the results came.. I wanna try and get everything sent in this week.
