Hi Everyone, I haven't seen this thread yet and as the application date (July 1) looms closer I thought I would start one. I am interested to know who is applying, what your undergraduate degree of study was and why you are now... Read More

    @ALXiong, thanks for the kind words and you do speak the truth. The emotional side of me is but the logical side of me knows there were so many awesome applicants and so little spots. Although they may not be done with acceptance calls, the amount of re-applicants (4 that I know of) that were accepted yesterday I feel my chances of being accepted are low. We will see.

    Super huge CONGRATS to all those accepted. Such a wonderful accomplishment and I am super excited for all you to start on your nursing career journey.

    @JeninCA, I know how you felt and I was stalking the last year posts as well. Is SMU only school you want to attend? If not, have you considered other schools such as Western University of Health Science at Pomona near LA? I applied there last year and waitlisted. I eventually got in but it was too rush that I could not accept their offer. They have different program from SMU but they have FNP specialty for their master entry as well. If you need more information for that, I am happy to provide you some. Please stay calm and see how things go! You never know what will happen.

    It has been a great honor to know all of you through this forum. I just wanted you to know that I personally rejected by 7 schools prior getting into SMU. Please do not give up your nursing dream. I wish you all the best in future nursing applications. I had been taking pre-req at local colleges for the past two and half years. I know how difficult it is to change your career and fulfill the nursing dream. If I could make it, I truly believe all of you can too!

    @elegant.lil.lady Yes, I can try to create one, but if anyone already did. Please share! I am exciting to start school soon!

    Need some "manpower" to create a group on FB. Please PM me your personal information, so I can create a group for Spring 2013 ELMSN entry not just FNP, CM group is welcomed as well. We are the same cohort, so I feel that we should just create one for all of us. We can exchange information within the FB group. Thank you!
    Still getting used to this site but if an FB group is created I'm on board. My name is Stephen Leon...

    Yes, SMU is the only one. I have two young children and my husband (who would be the only one working) has his job here, so my options are limited. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Hey all,

    I didn't see a group yet so I created a FB group called Samuel Merritt ELMSN Sacramento 2016 (It's all about the end goal, right?). I did not specify FNP, though this thread is mostly FNP-- ALXiong made a very valid point! I'm not sure if CM has their own thread/FB already though. Please feel free to join and we can start chatting!

    JeninCA keep your head up (:and everyone else who is still waiting, everything always happens for a reason so don't give up hope just yet, on school and the bigger picture

    JeninCA Please don't give up hope yet! I read other threads and it seems that SMU makes acceptances in waves, I am sure they're still trying to figure it all out. If it helps you can call Liza she so very nice and welcoming! There is always the wait-list, I have heard stories abut people getting in by wait-list all the time. That's another option too! Things will work out, and it's so hard to see the big picture, trust me I have been an emotional roller coaster, but there is one. Decisions will be made by the end of the week, so there is still time and hope! Hang in there

    I tried to search for this group, but I could not find it. It is me?
