Summer Entry 2013 Accelerated BSN/MSN Johns Hopkins - page 32

    I've been accepted to the Fall BSN program. Missed the call this morning, luckily they left a message. 4.0 post-bacc GPA (finished with half the pre-reqs), 3.6 bacc GPA, and some not-so-stellar grades from early on in my undergraduate coursework.

    For those of you on Facebook there are two different groups for both the Fall and Summer entry. Great way to connect with classmates!! <-- Summer Accel Group <--- Fall Accel Group

    I received my acceptance phone call this afternoon! I'm so happy to have been given this opportunity, but I don't think I can afford the tuition for only a BSN. I wish I would have submitted my application for the BSN/MSN program. I wonder if it's too late....does anyone know?

    Hey AlmondB! The cost for the BSN is the same regardless of whether you only do the BSN, or the BSN/MSN. The MSN is an additional cost with a separate cost of attendance/tuition statement, if that makes sense. It is probably too late to apply to the MSN. I would wait until you receive your financial aid package to discount Hopkins based on price alone though!

    Thanks for the response hopefulnurse24. What I meant to say is that I don't feel comfortable paying that much for a degree that will put me on equal salary ground with all RNs. I'm afraid I'll be swimming in debt for a long time...whereas if I'd feel more confident in my ability to pay off my loans if I were to be locked into an advanced degree track. Does that make sense?

    Got it. I didn't receive acceptance to my MSN specialty due to not having enough experience (I was sort of confused about that because I have a lot of experience in peds, but oh well) and they said my grades were high enough to get in, so they saw no problem with me easily matriculating into the MSN program in the future as long as my grades continued to follow that pattern in the BSN. I am sure the same goes for most of the other people who received acceptance to the program. I would call or email someone tomorrow and ask what they think! It's not going to be "direct entry", but I think chances are very high of receiving admission into an MSN program in the future, after receiving your BSN.

    Has anyone been awarded a merit scholarship? And does anyone know if it is possible to get the merit scholarship as well as the Fuld scholarship?

    Has anyone thought about applying to the HRSA Nurse Corps Scholarship program? Or possibly know anyone that has? I am considering applying to it, but I really don’t know if I want to go through what seems like a very intensive application process if I am not even sure I want to commit to two years of service. The main reason to not committing would be going back to school for an MSN/MPH before that time frame was over. Cnp2012, is anyone in your cohort part of this program?
  9. Visit  cnp2012 profile page
    I think there is one person in my cohort who has a HRSA. You are correct in that it is a very intense application process....I would definitely think it over because once you commit to those two years there isn't much wiggle room and he ran into the same problem with wanting to continue on. I can talk to him once we all get back from spring break and get the scoop.

    Theoretically it could happen but it is extremely rare......there is one person I can think of in all 3 cohorts currently at the school that is in this situation. Never say never though, stranger things have happened

    Hi mcav, did you end up hearing anything on Friday? It seems like a lot of people have been notified already. I hope the reason we haven't heard back is because midwifery is joint with Shenandoah, thus taking a longer time to process. I'm probably going to call in on Monday to check.
    Hey Kdiem, have you heard anything yet? I am still waiting...but not expecting too much at this point.
