    @mnmary i only have long-term care experience. I worked at express recovery unit for almost one year and also worked as home health nurse for three months at the same time. But that's it. I dont have any acute hospital experience. But i won several awards while i was going to school...

    @llzz I still haven't received the email yet. They said the graduate division might be a little bit behind the school. I am hoping by Friday it will be up. Anyone else received their link yet? It sounds like none of the acute care candidates have heard back yet so maybe they are the last wave. I know some students that didnt hear back till mid april.

    Hi Sparknine,

    I think you have a high chance of getting into the program. My friend, who was on the #5 on the waiting list, got in. We are given about 10 days to accept the offer to enroll the program.
    Good luck!!

    Hi everyone, I received my email link and graduate division letter online prior to my letter in the mail from the school (which I thought was a bit strange). Hopefully, you'll get yours soon though. I wish they gave us more time to decide though.

    Thank you so much Erica for your support! I have been quite depressed after I found out I am on the wait list. My last hope will be there... Hopefully, I can get into the program... sigh...

    llzz, from what I understand you received a letter from UCSF. Is that correct? I have not heard anything from UCSF yet. Has anyone else heard from UCSF? I have also applied to SFSU, but no change in status there either.

    I received an acceptance letter for the FNP program on March 23. I live in Los Angeles, so it didn't have far to travel. The letter came in a normal sized envelope, which I assumed meant I did not get in. Thankfully, I was wrong. For some reason, I thought an acceptance letter would come in a larger envelope. So that was a little scary at first. LOL. My deadline is also April 5, but I haven't received a link either yet.

    I am going to have to take the undergraduate physical assessment course over the summer, because the course I took at the University of Miami (BSN program) did not transfer to UCLA. But that is a good course to take again, so it's all good. Also, I already took a few graduate classes at another school. I heard they can transfer 6 units to UCLA. But I have no idea which 2 courses they will choose. I'd rather retake one of the science based courses than a theory based course. But whatever happens I'm really happy I got in. Most of my nursing friends with whom I graduated in 2009 are already nurse practitioners or CRNA's. I am the slow-poke in the group. lol.

    Hey everybody,

    I have been unable to attend any of the info sessions at UCLA. I was wondering if any of you knew how possible it is to work while doing the FNP program. I would like to work at least part time (full time would be great!) but I am not sure how conducive the program is for jobs. Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!

    I have two friends who are currently finishing up their first year at UCLA. One is doing the adult/gero acute care dual np/cns, and one is doing the adult gero acute care np. They both say that it is definitely challenging, so the less work you have, the better. So far, they still both work 2x per week, but the girl in the dual program is considering going down to just working 1x per week.
