    I applied for the on-campus direct entry program and I emailed the office a few days ago. They said

    "we are still reviewing applications. We will be contacting selected candidates in the next week or so to come in for an interview at the end of February. All applicants should be notified of their admissions decision by mid March/the first week of April at the latest."

    I have ~3.6 overall and ~3.9 in my prereqs and I applied for the neonatal track. I know my GPA is pretty low but I'm hoping my experience in the medical field helps! Anyone else?

    what experience did you have, and what program online ABSN or traditional: Hellosun are you male or female lolol that can help to sadly the director said they are truly trying to diverse the program. what pre-reqs have you taken the more difficult ones like Microbiology, Anatomy 1&2, Chemistry and Human Growth help out more as a factor than Nutrition and Statistics I also have been volunteering at Dana Farber as my experience for about 6 months. Have a 3.4 overall in Political Science and Law and a 3.82 in pre-reqs for Microbiology, Human Growth development, Anatomy 1&2 and And Social Science a Religion Psych Course. It also matters she statted where you took them at a community college vs a university and how long ago the more recent the better.

    Hi sj10125, I have experience shadowing in many different areas of nursing and I've been working in the veterinary field for years where I learned a lot about meds, injections and the like. It's obviously a lot different than human medicine haha but it definitely gave me a good perspective. I also have a ton of nurses in my family so I know a lot about the field from them which I tend to think has given a more realistic perspective of nursing than I might otherwise have. And I'm a female which seems a little unfortunate right now! haha. I have taken A&P1, Stats, Human G&D, Nutrition and am currently taking microbio, a&p2. But I have also taken and done well in genetics, bio and chem classes that I'm hoping will look good to admissions!

    I just found out that I was accepted into Regis College's part time bsn program which I'm actually really interested in since it will allow me to work while I'm in school. Have you applied anywhere else around here?

    That is all awesome, i wish you the best outcome truly for the both of us. I have also had many amazing experiences volunteering a Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Meeting the children at the Jimmy Fund has truly been a god given gift to me. Seeing there struggles has helped me want to sacrifice myself for them. Seeing them smile is truly amazing. I was previously a law student and switched to this as my new found calling just recently as of last semester. I used all my savings to take Medical Micro, A&P I, Human Growth, A&P 2, Religion Psych, and lastly finishing Chem and Stats by April. I am completely broke and have gone through all my saving as a paralegal. UGGHHHHH lol but it is worth it. Currently I don't have the highest Uundergrad GPA of a 3.3 but have a high pre-req GPA and good recommendations from Dana-Farber and MD who i assisted so i guess i will be praying too lol. I will be applying to MGH, MCPHS, Boston College, Quinnipiac, Curry and praying some more in the future. My mother was a CNS for 25 years so she had a lot to do with this recent decision. Now that she is disabled and had to give up her job i truly want to pick up her commitment and carry it forward. I am hoping my interesting background and determination and personal experiences will help them drive them to accepting me. Looking at someone for numbers and GPA's is not a good way to accept someone at any school. I hope the best for you, and you wont be competing against me since i applied to Fast Track Online Psychiatric Mental Health.

    This is from my personal experience....
    1. Seriously, DO NOT DO ANY "Direct Entry" grab your associates in nursing, then with your bachelors ???? You are more marketable. Throughout my career as a registered nurse I have had the opportunity to precept nursing students in nearly every situation (MedSurg/ pediatric & adolescent psych mental health/ adult psych/ Tele/ evem f;oated to the SICU.... This is just my opinion based on the students that I have worked with who are also seeking the similar track that you are wrong they all seem to follow the same coursework there is a super summer filled with science. Which if you don't pass science summer you're out, however if you do #summer then you're going to be taking MedSurg nursing then pediatrics maternity psychiatric at some point they have to mix and health assessment pharmacology pathophysiology and ethics... ALL OF THOSE CLINICALS ARE GENERALLY DONE OVER THE COURSE AT LEAST IN A BACHELORS PROGRAM THREE YEARS AND ASSOCIATES THEY CRAM THEM INTO TWO IN A DIRECT ENTRY THEY CRAMMED INTO ONE SO I WAS ALWAYS AMAZED WHEN I MET ONE OF THE GRADUATES WHO WENT THROUGH OBTAINING THERE ARE IN THIS WAY AND THEY JUST PASS THE BOURDS - it just seems UNSAFE.
    THE REASON nurse practitioners even exist is because nurses were identified as being competent enough in many areas and they needed a way to also treat more people than they had available to treat them. SO NOW YOU HAVE PROBABLY ONE MONTH TO PASS YOUR BOARDS BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO BE GOING RIGHT BACK INTO SCHOOL IN THE FALL WHERE ARE YOU'LL TAKE WHAT I WILL BE TAKING IN GRADUATE SCHOOL TO BECOME A NURSE PRACTITIONER I PLAN ON TWO CLASSES PER TERM TWO YEARS ON THE OTHER HAND YOU WILL PROBABLY TAKE THAT IN 18 MONTHS AND HAVE MANY MORE CLASSES THAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE FOR THE BOARD OF NURSING TO APPROVE YOU AS A NURSE PRACTITIONER.
    IF YOU'RE READING THIS DON'T FORGET THIS ONE TEENSY-WEENSY BIT OF ADVICE GET YOURSELF SOME STUDENT NURSE INSURANCE YOU'RE BETTER OFF GETTING IT NOW AND JUST CONTINUALLY UPDATING IT BECAUSE EVERY NURSE MAKES A MISTAKE EVERY NP MAKES MISTAKE MDS MAKE MISTAKES BUT YOU REALLY ARE BEING THROWN TO THE WOLVES I DO WISH YOU GOOD LUCK HOWEVER I PERSONALLY WOULD PREFERRED TO SEE THE SAME PROVIDER THAT I'VE SEEN SINCE BIRTH BUT YOU KNOW THAT THE PEDIATRICIAN BUT ALL MY KIDS GO TO HIM NOW I HAVE A HARD TIME GOING BECAUSE I NEVER KNOW WHO'S TREATING ME AND WHO GOT PUSHED THROUGH THE PROGRAM AS FAST AS POSSIBLE IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT THINK ABOUT ALL THOSE NURSING BOOKS NO SPREAD THEM OUT FOR IN MY SITUATION 4+2---6, however in your case sounds like it comes to between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 years you might as well break up with your significant other and tell your friends don't talk to them when you're done good luck ladies and gentlemen!

    I do not know which program you are shooting to get into by the roots and undergrad or grad? Just a little word of caution I hope you have a good family that can help you because after financial aid and my EFC was zero, I still owed $4000 above and I had what's called a parent plus loan not sure what that amount was but my mother wasn't thrilled about it.
    There are 11 RN - BSN programs in my area, take a look at some schools. Northeastern is Nice, I actually GOT IN, I just find them ridiculous, I hope you do get it, but if not, try a state school. When you graduate not one person is going to care that you went to Northeastern all they care about is whe!ther or not you passed your boards and they can verify that so save the money if you can
