    Thanks for posting with information. I, too, have not heard anything back concerning my packet. I sent it on June 30, hopefully we both receive notice this week.

    Hello Lenaelle,

    I applied to the ELM/FNP program, my undergraduate degree is in Health Administration with an Emphasis on Management. I would really like to work in primary care. Just today, I heard a report on NPR discussing the shortage of primary care physicians in the Sacramento area. How did your TEAS go? Good luck with your application!!

    Hi everyone,
    I'm from out east but I'm interested in this program. I try to take school websites and rankings with a grain of salt and I just wanted to you know what people had heard about this school/program . Thank you!

    Ahhh... feeling more worried now...

    I still haven't received anything from SMU.

    If I haven't gotten a confirmation, does that mean that I didn't meet their requirements?

    Hi Lenaelle,
    I received confirmation about the ABSN program but not the ELMSN and I sent my applications on the same day. So, I think they just have a lot of applications to sort through. Everyone will get a confirmation that their application was received, it has nothing to do with meeting their qualifications (that is a separate email).

    I would wait until next week and call to check the status.

    Has anyone received a confirmation email from SMU for EL-MSN program? Or it is just me. I have been waiting patiently for three to four weeks now. I think I may try to reach them this week for some updates.

    Yes. I applied for the ELMSN/FNP track and I got a confirmation email.

    Patience is a virtue I do not possess however I am holding onto what Liza told me it could take 4 weeks or more to get all of the confirmations sent out.

    Hi all! This is my second time applying to the Sac campus, and it does take them some time to get all the emails out. I received confirmation on July 6th that my application was received, but remember, they have hundreds of applications so it's a long process! I am sure you will get your emails soon, as interviews will start in August. Good luck!

    Hi All,

    Still waiting for that confirmation. This waiting process is so nerve-wracking. Have any of you looked into other schools/programs?

    Yes! I spent last year applying to multiple schools, with no success. I am on the waitlist right now for 2 of them, but it does not look promising.... There are a few schools in SoCal adding this type of entry level program for 2013. It's a very competitive field, with each school usually only having 25-30 slots in a class! You have to keep trying I guess
