University of South Alabama Nurse Practitioner Summer 2013 Admission

  1. 0 Bear with me as I'm new to allnurses.com. I applied for the Summer 2013 admission to USA's MSN - FNP program. I'm anxiously awaiting an admission decision. Has anyone else heard anything yet?

    I'm not overly confident that I'll get in. Here are my stats: 3.53 overall GPA (higher for just nursing courses), 1.5 years of LPN experience on CCU, 5 years experience as RN (CICU, Ambulatory Care, Management), board certs in Med-Surg and Ambulatory care, and currently serving as an Active Duty RN in the military.

    How long did it take you to get your acceptance letter? Congrats to you and I wish you success in the program. Sounds like a great program.

    I have applied to 2 programs - turned down by one and waiting on response from the other. There are only two schools in my area - SC.
    I have a BSN, been out of school 14 years with lots of experience.
    My GPA is 3.4
    My GRE scores not that great.
    Is it too late to apply for Fall 2013 admission. I was confused when reading their deadlines - April 1 or July ?

    It took 6 weeks from the application deadline to get the acceptance letter. I know a couple of people who went through this school and they're great practitioners.

    Sorry, about not getting into the program of your choice. Hopefully, you've heard good news by now.

    You have double my experience and a great GPA! Good thing USA doesn't require GRE scores or recommendation letters. Yes, it's too late to apply for Fall 2013. I just checked and the deadline is Apr 1st. If you're planning on applying for Spring 2014, I'd get started now. It took forever to do the centralized application on nursingcas.org. You have to fill out your entire transcript (including dates you took each class, class #s, credits earned, etc). It was annoying to say the least!

    Good luck to you!

    I did not get accepted to the other school - GRE scores too low. I applied to USA for Spring 2014.

    I am also applying for spring 2014! Just started process last night. How much is out-of-state tuition? I see conflicting things on their website...

    Everything is online so you pay the same as in state tuition.

    What is the general rule on the GRE? As in I hear a lot of people talking about having to take one, but I have not been told that I need to do this. I've applied to Grand Canyon University acute-care nurse practitioner program and have my interview tomorrow, but I have not been told to take a GRE. Is it related to the GPA? Right now my GPA is a 4.0 so I'm not sure if I still need to take the GRE or not?

    For any graduate program, GRE scores generally need to be over 1000. I know they just changed the GRE scoring so you'll have to check what the new standard is. FYI USA does not require GRE scores.

    Hi everyone! Any news on acceptance letters? I also applied for Spring 2014. I have been so far rejected by 2 schools already. My GPA is 3.4. I finished with a BSN and have just gotten a MSN in leadership and management degree but I haven't taken the GRE. I've got 2 years of RN experience. I feel like I am not doing things right because I only get pass interviews but not to the point of getting accepted. I need to see a glimmer of hope. USA is my first choice.
