  7. How did you decide what school to go to for your CNM?
    I looked at schools that offered direct entry programs (for people with non-nursing bachelor's) and based my choices on their start date (most start in May, I couldn't do that!) and number of...

  8. Vanderbilt Grad Entry 2013
    I actually got an e-mail as well as a letter, for NMW. I think because it was the Wednesday before the open house, they wanted to give us a chance to make arrangements if we hadn't already.

    The most recent statistic I've see is a 94% acceptance rate. I do not know of any schools that are less selective than that. There are several threads about Walden on this site so you can read both...

  11. ABSN/Direct Entry 2014 Applicants
    From talking with some people in different programs I've run into, I think the BSN "requirement" really depends on your program and your specialty. UIC, for instance, encourages students to do their...

  12. Safety Schools for Direct-Entry MSN?
    You might look into University of Cincinnati; they start student 3x per year so I would assume their acceptance rates might be higher due to more opportunities.

  13. Getting the "feel" of different direct-entry programs?
    It's hard for me to tell, since I haven't been to a traditional nursing school! Vanderbilt lets you transition directly from the MSN to the DNP... and I'm not sure you're going to find anywhere that...

  17. Vanderbilt Pre-Specialty (for non-RNs) MSN 2013
    I believe the pre-specialty program does count as Direct Entry - that's what it's called at almost every other school, but yeah, seems surprising that you have to actually be enrolled, so I guess it...
