OSHU Accelerated BSN to MSN Nurse-Midwifery 2013 - page 5

Hi all, I have seen GREAT threads for the 2011 and 2012 applicants and cohorts to OHSU's AccBacc to MSN programs, but cannot find one for 2013. Someone suggested we make one for the 2013... Read More

    I live in San Diego, it seems like its very competitive.

    Still nothing. I'm wondering at what point I should give the admissions office a call? At this point it's around a month since I was hoping to hear back...

    Acceptance deposits for CNM were due (postmarked) by today so I bet there's another round of letters going out soon. Any "declines" might open up room for more acceptances. Did you call admissions? I think it's perfectly reasonable to call and see if there's been any change to your status.

    Thanks kdrade, good to know! If I don't hear anything by the end of the week I'll give them a call. I definitely need some closure on this!

    Hi jpdx,

    I forgot to post this on Friday! I called just before admission closed on Friday, the 15th, and asked them if they had sent the waitlist and rejection letters yet for CNM. The receptionist told me that they had not yet sent them, but they were "working on it". So the earliest that they could have been sent out was Monday - I haven't called them since then to ask if they have been sent. I am sure that we will find out soon, though at this point I am not hopeful!

    Ok, thanks! Yeah at this point I'm sure I didn't get in, but that's ok, I just want to know! Sounds like it will be pretty soon.

    I just got accepted to the pmhnp program from the wait list! I'm most likely going to Vanderbilt though, I was also accepted from the wait list for their program.

    Yay! Congrats Hannah! If you decide on OHSU, we should meet up for coffee prior to orientation. I would love to know someone else in the MSN program. Vanderbilt is also a great choice. I lived in Nashville briefly and really enjoyed it. If you go, be sure to try the tacos at The Local Taco in Sylvan Park.

    Thanks kdrade! I will definitely let you know if I choose OHSU. Thanks for the Nashville advice! I've never been but have heard great things about it.

    Has anyone from from the wait list been accepted to the ABSN-CNM program yet? I was waitlisted but have no idea when (or if) I'll hear anything. Eek!

    Hey mcav, any word yet? This forum has been really quiet. Let me know if you get in. Are you in Portland? Are you considering other programs as well?

    I ended up waitlisted with "moderate chances" for CNM. Even if I do happen to get a phone call from OHSU, I don't think I'll end up going now that I've put down a deposit and made plans elsewhere. Good luck to you, mcav!!

    Kdrade, I called OHSU last week and I was given the impression that the class was pretty much set...unless people start dropping out. I am currently in Vermont but will likely be moving somewhere (I don't know where yet, eek!) in May. I have applied to a few of other programs (Columbia, John's Hopkins, BC- WHNP) but pretty much only got in for ABSN... so I'll probably take next year to get experience (I applied with no birth experience this round) before trying again. What about you?

    Jpdx, congratulations and best of luck to you!!
