    Just curious, has anyone asked which semester/classes have a clinical component? I've been traveling for work so I need to figure out when I need to settle down in one spot to work on my clinicals.

    Im so glad to see all of you guys excited about this program I am finishing my BSN now, but have had constant contact with my admissions counsler from Maryville U. and I will start the application process in less than a year. Do you guys plan to work while in school? I think the online option would be the best for me. Keep the forum updated on how everything is going. This right now is the school I am hoping to get into mainly because the help from the admissions department has been superb. My GPA is lower but my nursing school is over 3.5 my overall is over 3.0 which is their minimum. Do you guys have any advise for applying to the program. Whatever would be great help. Thanks so much for reading and good luck hopefully you guys will be graduating while I'm getting accepted.

    Dudenurse73:

    Congratulations on obtaining your BSN. That is a step in the right direction for sure. Keep your resume updated because they will ask for that. Get professional references lined up too as they will ask for 3 of them for NP admittance. Study different personal statements and start preparing yours and have it done so that you are not rushing around at the last minute preparing this part of the admission process/packet. Pray and ask for Gods blessing over your endeavors and ask Him to give you strength to be the very best NP that you can. Do not let others discourage you. If you have to keep this dream to yourself then do so, otherwise keep pressing on until you reach your goal !!!!

    I agree.for the personal statement start writing why you choose to be a FNP,ANP and so on.also your philosophy of nursing.try to practice writing condense and concise papers.i oringinally wrote my paper with 1500 words then had to revise and shorten it to 500 words.im so happy and excited.i just wanna start already! I wonder where everyone is located.im in florida.Praying we all keep in touch and help one another.

    Thanks for posting books, I haven't been scheduled for my "welcome call". I was only notified of acceptance.
    I'm very excited but worried. I hope everyone will still come here sometimes to talk about assignments and "blow off steam". Nice to know so many going through the same program.

    I just went to online bookstores to check out prices of books. I just found out that of the first 4 books I already have two of them!!!!!! Woohooowooohooo!!!!

    I just graduated from Grand Canyon University in December and used the APA manual and the Evidence Based Practice book. The exact same books and same editions. Well that is one great thing.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Hey everybody I am in Kansas. I am looking for prospective clinical sites already. I hope to have something locked in pretty soon even thoughwe don't have to have clinical sites ready for another year yet. I believe in being proactive. BabykidRN I didn't even realize you had been accepted so congratulations to you !!!!! Wow.......Everyone we have to keep in touch and meet on here to blow off some steam and help each other through this process until we graduate. Super idea !!!!!

    Do you guys want to start a facebook page for our class so we can message and post on there instead throughout the next 2.5 years? This is a public forum that anyone can read so I don't know how much "steam" we want to blow off on here! Just an idea! I can't wait to get to know all of you! I'm sure we'll be doing discussion boards for class too so we'll get to know each other that way too. I am in Montana.

    That's a great idea! I am in Missouri. So thankful that everyone is posting the information they are getting for everyone here to see. I finally was able to get my Maryville account activated. I still have yet to get anything from financial aid...anyone else having this issue? I am wondering how long it will take for it to kick in and not to mention how much I qualify for. My welcome call isn't until the 9th of August so I have been feeling a little anxious about not having all the answers.

    Would someone who has the breakdown of courses please email it to me too? bvwatts04@netscape.com

    Love the idea of a Facebook page..let me know if you need help getting that going! Glad I also have people to bounce things off of in here. I am trying to find sites as well. It has not been that easy so I think it is a good idea to start. Congrats BabykidRN and also for already having the books and used them, you are a step ahead!!! I sent you the schedule bvwatts.
