    I know Marquette University (which is in my hometown of Milwaukee), does a direct entry MSN for people with non-nursing degrees. Marquette is an excellent school, so you could check that out as well.

    Hey guys!! I am a 1st yr prespecialty student at Vandy. If you don't get accepted for your 1st choice, you have to wait for the next yr to re-apply from my understanding. You are however, able to switch specialties through a lottery type situation in April or May of your prespecialty yr. It is based on availability and you have to develop a new essay, etc. Hope that helps, please let me know if you all have additional questions......good luck!!!!

    I looked at my online application summary page the other day and it said that none of my transcripts had been received (eeeek!) so I e-mailed the CNM program coordinator and she said that they use an internal system to keep track of the transcripts, but they had all been received. Just wanted to let everyone know before they freaked out (like me!)

    She also said that my application had been sent for review...ahhhhh! Now the waiting begins!

    Hey MEF,

    I was on the online application page and I didn't see where it lets you know if the transcripts were received. Is it on the first page right when you log-in?
