Has anyone applied or been accepted to Case Western's grad-entry DNP program to start fall of 2010? I am currently awaiting an admissions decision. Thanks!... Read More
- 0Feb 6, '10 by kspills10Yeah, the goal of this program is for students to get their MSN or DNP, so that's why I don't think it's a big deal if you have an MN instead of a BSN, because you wouldn't be working as an RN forever. But another reason I don't think employers would care is that some specialties require work experience before you start the master's portion, so obviously if people had difficult times getting hired as an RN because of this degree, I'm sure the school would've changed it.
I'm not sure if I want to get my DNP. Well, maybe if I end up going to Case I would, because it's only an additional year, right? I guess I'd have to see what my financial situation is. I think it's fine if you choose not to get your DNP right away.
Have you heard of any hospitals in the Cleveland area that offer tuition reimbursement or any type of tuition assistance to get your master's?
- 0Feb 10, '10 by pstravelerMy interviewer said Cleveland Clinic, Metro General and Case Medical Center all have tuition reimbursement options. She said many students take advantage of that working as an RN while doing the masters portion
I've only been able to find it on the Cleveland Clinic website so far:
I thiiink we would be eligible for this.

It looks like Metro Health has tuition reimbursement for its current employees, however I don't know if you can get a job and then reimbursement if you are already enrolled in the DNP program.
- 0Feb 11, '10 by kspills10Congrats Sarabear! It's always nice to have a few schools to choose from.
Pstraveler, I looked at the links, and I don't know if we'd qualify for the Cleveland Clinic's tuition assistance program, because it says students need to be enrolled in an associate's degree, bachelor's degree, or diploma program. Technically we are not receiving a BSN, so I don't know if the MSN/DNP would qualify us for this option, even though we are seeking our first degree in nursing.
And maybe I misunderstood the UH tuition support program, but I looked at the application, and it seems we'd only be eligible for $8,500, and only for 1 year. So I don't really understand these 2 programs, but I guess I will have to look into it more if I end up attending Case.
- 0Jun 18, '11 by resilientnurseI am happy to have come across this thread. It is somewhat dated, but I was hoping to learn if any of you wound up actually attending Case Western Reserve?
I have recently applied to the MSN Psych NP program at CWRU. Does any have any experience with the application process, being admitted or denied, financial aid (is it just loans?), and the program itself? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I’ve been invited to interview at Case in December for the Grad-Entry program and I am very interested in attending. The cost of attendance is really the only factor that is making me nervous. I’ve been admitted into Ohio State’s program which I know is both top-notch and much cheaper than Case. For those of you that have already started the GE program, can you give me a general idea of how much Financial Aid you/others you know received from the University before loans (i.e. merit based, need based, etc.)
