I haven't seen any forums about the upcoming application for next year's MSN-E program so I thought I'd start! I have a degree from University of Oregon in Human Physiology with experience as a Medical Scribe and in a variety of PT and Chiropractic settings! (Switched from PT/Kinesiology to Nursing!) I'm interested in the FNP track and am really excited about Western. Feel free to post any questions/stats/etc and join me in freaking out over apps! Are any of you attending any of the upcoming information sessions as well?

I will join you in freaking out over apps! I missed the information session, did you go? How was it?

I did! It was really nice and informative and everyone seems very supportive! Also did anyone else see that they extended the deadline to November and then changed it back? What??

I only see that it's due November 1. It hasn't changed back yet. Where do you see that it says a different date than November 1?

Hi guys! I'm also applying and my goal is to become an FNP. Do you know if we can choose any one of the three "tracks" (Health Systems Leadership-Administrative Nurse Leader, Health Systems Leadership-Clinical Nurse Leader, or Ambulatory Care) and still pursue FNP? I don't really see why not, but I thought that a clinical nurse leader's role, goals and work environment differ from FNP.

Hi Everyone! I'm applying as well. Good luck to you all! I still see that the deadline is November 1st.

Hi everyone! I applied for the MSN-E program at the end of August, and recently received an email from WesternU saying that my application has been forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review and that I will be contacted if I receive an interview. Exciting! I believe that during the MSN portion of the program, we choose a specialty (Health Systems Leadership-Administrative Nurse Leader, Health Systems Leadership-Clinical Nurse Leader, or Ambulatory Care). Once we graduate from the MSN portion, we can consider applying and entering the FNP post-masters program. They are two separate programs, as far as I understand. Best of luck to everyone!

Hi everyone! It appears they extended the deadline another month. Based on what I've seen from previous cohort threads, this is a common occurrence. I'm interested in pursuing the CNL track then doing the post-master's FNP. Good luck everyone!

Did everyone get their application in? I am not looking forward to the waiting period. I'm trying to go for the school visit this month on the 18th, anyone else?

I submitted my application yesterday but hand delivered my transcripts today. (Eek I know very last minute) When you sent in your transcripts, how long did it take for the status online to change to received? I am a little worried that I might not get considered because my transcript statuses still say "awaiting"
Best of luck to everyone!

I applied back in August, and had my items checked off pretty quickly once they were received. When everything is received, they then forward the application to the Reviewing Committee, and they'll email you when that happens. I can't make the visit on the 18th - if you learn anything interesting, would you mind sharing Mo.the.nurse? Good luck to everyone!!

Are there specific visit dates...?

I applied to Western University's 2018 cohort as well. I finished all my pre-reqs this past summer with a GPA of 3.7 and have my overall GPA as a 3.85.
My bachelor's degree was in Health Science and I've been in healthcare for about 8 years now with experience in administration, community health, geriatrics, pediatrics and in hospital/clinic settings.
Good luck to everyone! I hope we hear sooner rather than later!!
I went to the information session this past August and found it extremely useful.
