I can't find an answer through any search I've done so far, and I can't get in touch with anyone in the nursing department. My application is due by 1/20, and I want to get it in at least two weeks before the deadline. My application packet is getting mailed out this Monday, so I thought I would come here and take a broad survey. What format did you submit your entrance essay for nursing school in? MLA? APA?
I can't get anyt definite answers. An English Comp professor said just general essay format....a friend of mine who has a masters in child psych suggested APA (which seems really formal for an entrance essay of 800 words). At the moment my essay is in an MLA style format. Oh..and I'm applying to the University Of Tennessee's Accelerated BSN Program, just incase theres anyone out there who is as well.
Did it not specify in the application? If no, then definitely double space, times new roman 12 pt. If there is a word count or page limit, make sure you stick to it. Maybe a header with your name...
