Hello, I'm wondering who all has been conditionally accepted into the Fall 2013 MSN/FNP program at CSUDH. I have been and would love to talk about the program. Have any of you heard about the program, classes, instructors, and I'm a bit confused about the clinical requirements. Are they due THIS July 15 or NEXT July 15?

Hi. Sorry to reply so late, I kinda forgot about this thread. Anyways, conditionally accepted means you're accepted in the school, and need to take several MSN courses. The first semester is advanced patho and advanced nursing roles. During the first semester, you also send another application specifically to the nursing program (in this case, the fnp program), which includes transcripts, essay, letter of recs, etc. Then you go on to take advanced pharmacology and advanced health assessment the following semester. After that semester is over, you submit another form. That form includes your grades in the four classes and the GWE writing score. That form is considered the second level review. From there, they select 15 students to join the actual MSN/FNP program. You can only apply once. If you don't get in, they said we can either change our track to something else (such as nurse educator) and reapply. Or we reapply to another school and hope to god that our classes are transferable so that we don't spend another year stressing over the same material. Either way, the whole application process is long, harsh, and unnecessary.
