    I applied to pediatric critical care. I think that they probably interview a lot of their applicants, because so many are qualified, but I really doubt that they ask all applicants to interview. That would be SO many applicants they'd have to talk to!

    Is anyone else here applying for a joint MSN/MPH degree?
    I'm a bit unclear as to what the applicant pool looks like. I'm not sure if I stand a chance or not.
    Unlike the SoN, Bloomberg School of Public Health wanted GRE scores. I wonder what other criteria they look at.

    Does anyone know how many clinical hours these programs have? All I know is Duke (well it's an ABSN) has 700 clinical hours. UVA has 1,000. Does anyone know for the other ones?

    Good question! I actually thought that Duke had a little more than that, so I'm glad to know it's 700 hours.

    Oh yeah Duke is a bit more than that. I just rounded I think someone on here said it was around 756 or something

    Does anyone know the advantages and disadvantages of doing the summer entry vs. the fall entry for Johns Hopkins BSN/MSN program. I know that the Fall entry is slower paced and consequently a longer program...but does that result in a big difference in tuition. Initially, I had plans to apply to the summer entry but have been sick for the past two and a half weeks...which has set me back a bit. I'm not sure I'm going to make the deadline for summer-entry and am at the point of just considering fall-entry.

    I don't want to regret anything though if the difference could mean a big jump in tuition. I wish they didn't have to have so many prompts :T sigh!

    Do the fall session... I remember reading in older posts that a lot of people who did summer eventually had to switch to fall because of how fast paced it was.

    I'm applying for fall for the same reason hopeful! I hate that there's a word limit for these prompts! I'm having so much trouble with this application! Feel better
