    I heard they were supposed to be in our mailbox this week! Where are they?!

    yeah so I emailed them today and they emailed everyone back saying they should be mailed after it being hopefully completed by June 8th. It makes sense that it will take a while since we are the very first class; I would rather have it late and well prepared than early with missing information. Either way, I'm so excited! Yay!

    Hey everyone,
    I'll be attending in the fall.
    This packet is not very clear, anyone else having problems?

    How is everyone getting proof of immunization? I have my official records but I guess they want titers.
    Anyone done this two part TB test. Public health here won't do it and my doctors office won't either, where are we supposed to get it?

    This is a pain!

    Hello Mitkatze,

    I've gotten half of my titers already at the school. The TB titers is really cheap. Just do it there. Because you are enrolled in the fall, you can use the health center's services but because you are not in summer school there is only a ten dollar fee. You can pretty much get all of the titers done there if you can't get them anywhere else.

    Hope this helps.

    See you all at orientation!

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to this forum, and have a question. The Direct Entry MSN thread is closed, so I thought I would post to this. Please let me know if this is not okay and direct me to the correct place. Like I said, newbie here.

    My question is about Direct Entry MSN Programs. Specifically, I want to emerge with a FNP. So far, I have found a program that I LOVE at Emory University but the only way I'll be able to afford it is with a SERIOUS scholorship.

    I'm wondering how you all do it. All of the programs I have found are very intensive. Financial Aid would cover tuition, but with no time to work, how do you live? Where's the money, everyone?

    Any and all help with this would be fabulous. I'm scared and excited all at the same time. I've found what I want to do, and don't want money to keep me from it! Thanks much!:spin:

    Hello,

    I am currently an EL-MSN student at Cal-State Fullerton. Almost all of us in the program have had to quit our jobs before entering the program. A few people still work a couple hours a week. The program is very intense. I have managed to live off of loans and a tuition grant. I took out both the Stafford unsubsidized and subsidized, a Federal Perkins, and a private loan. Almost all of us had to do the same.. Sometimes, you just got to do what you gotta do.. Taking out loans to live is worth it to get your RN. Most hospitals pay back a percentage of your loans for fulfilling a two year contract with them when you graduate.

    There really are not any scholarships for 1st semester EL-MSN students. There are more offers for scholarships later on in the program. It also depends on the program. Well, I hope this helped you a little. Good luck
