    Hi meangreenbean,

    Hopefully your received SJ's email about this mix up. We will be receiving a package soon via USPS with instructions on how to log in to myaccess to fill out the necessary financial aid info, so just hold tight until it comes .

    Hi Rhubie_807,

    There are several current MEPNs that have kids. It clearly is doable, but tricky if you have very young children.
    It may be helpful to be proactive with SON leadership to find ways to pick clinical sites that are not super far away.

    Regarding preparing for summer quarter:
    Answer 1: Refresh your A&P, go to library and read pharmacology, review med terminology
    Answer 2: Relax, make good use of free time, spend time with friends and family, exercise.
    My recommendation is the second option. There will be plenty of time to study as school starts...

    The summer is quite packed, it likely may not be possible to fit many shifts on those weekends. However, I believe you will find it is more doable during Fall and onwards. Much will depend on how flexible your employer and work hours are. Also, you can try fit in more work days in-between quarters, and during holiday breaks.

    Hey, I was wondering if you know more about the AGCNS-ONC program at UCSF?

    Hi kdiem,

    do you feel like there are any common threads that all the accepted applicants have? I'm trying to figure out if there are any aspects of my application i should emphasize. I have a lot of international experience but did poorly on the gre math portion.

    When I spoke to the admissions guy, he said that the people that are accepted tend to either have public health degrees or are CNAs with plenty of experience in healthcare.

    Thanks so much! So experience sounds very important? Are you enjoying the program? What is your specialty if you don't mind me asking.

    I was rejected because I'm already in a nursing program and did not "articulate enough" why I wanted to be a NP over a BSN nurse. /rolls eyes. I may reapply to their traditional MSN program unless I decide to go the CRNA route and get some critical care experience.

    Just saying that's what the admissions rep told me, though.

    That sounds bizzare. Do you know anyone that got in?
