    Direct-entry CNL is a master's prepared RN. So with that MSN you would work at the bedside. I chose ABSN instead of the direct-entry CNL only because ABSN programs are shorter. But the nice thing about direct-entry CNL programs is that if you choose to become a nurse practitioner you can do a post-master's certificate to do that (most of the time).

    You'll have to check with hospitals around you and how familiar they are with direct entry CNLs. You wouldn't be hired right off as a CNL, just as an RN.

    I am about to start nursing at UF in the ABSN class of 2014. UF no longer conducts interviews. The requirements for admission can be found on their website. Good luck! Application Process » Nursing Admissions » College of Nursing » University of Florida

    Hi all - I was wondering if you all could give me some advice. My ultimate goal is to be a NP and I will apply to Direct Entry programs this fall. I am graduating from undergrad in May 2014 with a degree in Public Health. I have experience studying healthcare abroad, I've interned for a public health organization for the past year, and plan to shadow a NP this fall. Currently I have a 3.4GPA. I am still working on finishing the prerequisites - I will be taking Statistics in the fall and will most likely take A&P and Microbiology in the summer of 2014 (I don't have room in my schedule to take them in the Spring). I'm planning on applying to Direct Entry programs at Northeastern, Columbia, Vanderbilt, Emory, MGH Institute, Pace, and Marquette. Do you all think that my lack of prerequisites completed will hinder my application? Is it worth it to give it a try and apply this year? Any advice is appreciated - there is no nursing program at my college and my pre-health advisor has very little knowledge on direct entry nursing programs, so I am pretty much all alone here.

    Hey everyone! I'm currently applying for next fall and spring. I'm just wondering how everyone is paying for these programs? They are quite costly and financial aid doesn't cover the entire cost... feeling a little discouraged.
