I've been doing a little early research on graduate programs while I'm still in nursing school
(a little more motivation keep my butt on the Dean's list
) and I'm very interested in Columbia's post BSN DNP AG-ACNP program, but the website seems to be lacking some detailed information on the application requirements.
On the FAQs and "How to Apply" it indicates that you should have a B in the prerequisites, but it doesn't mention what the prerequisites are. It also doesn't indicate how much time has to pass between your BSN and applying to the program (or if BSN students with an anticipated graduation date before the DNP start date are eligible), nor does it mention whether or not you have to have X years of experience as a practicing nurse or if we need to have a portfolio in order to apply. I'm kind of expecting that they won't take a new grad's application seriously, but I'd rather know what my timeline is looking like, so here I am hoping to find a few folks who have been through this with Columbia.
I would expect that most people work for a few years prior to applying, which I will probably want for myself being that I'm leaning towards acute care; but I've heard about a lot of people jumping straight into grad school. Just curious! Thanks in advance
