Direct Entry MSN Programs 2013 - page 56

Anyone on here applying to direct entry MSN programs that begin in summer or fall of 2013? I think I have finalized my list of programs to apply to, and I am beginning to get everything together to start applying this... Read More

    I would have picked BC over MGH anyway so I'm fine with only getting into BC.

    My rationale on U of Rochester could be a little biased since they waitlisted me, but after the phone interview I had in the fall I would have been a little hesitant on accepting admission anyway. I didn't like how you had to interview twice, one with the bachelor's program and once with the master's. That was the only program that did it this way (that I applied to at least) and I found it to be a little odd that they would do it this way. I also didn't like that it was a 3 year program. If other programs can fit pre-licensure and the entire master's portion into 5 semesters, why wouldn't they have an accelerated way to do years 2-3 quicker? I'm not saying it's a bad program by any means, I just have found better programs that I think I would be happier pursuing instead. Hope that makes sense.

    When I did my Vanderbilt campus tour, they told me that they require their students to have cars, because clinicals can be up to 2 hours (3 hours for NMW) away and are not always accesible by public transportation. I think that's only during the specialty year and the pre-specialty clinicals are closer, but I'm not sure about that - but it's something to keep in mind for planning for Vandy! I haven't seen any "official" notice about that, and I've even looked through the handbooks they have posted on their website, but I do know she said it was a requirement.

    Did you call Vandy's admission office or someone in the specialty you applied for office for an answer on your acceptance?

    Keats & hi616- I will reply to your PMs soon!

    I applied to the pre-specialty PMHNP program. Since I never received the financial aid packet, I emailed S.C. asking if she had the correct address and if they sent out a letter for my admission decision. They told me my application was still under faculty review. I applied before the December 1st deadline, and I also received the email that everyone got about their application still being under faculty review. Hopefully the committee meets soon!

    Yeah I suggest calling the admissions department and asking point blank - that's what worked for me!

    Good luck!
