    I applied for the acute care np program at georgetown for sept 2013. as of yesterday afternoon online it said "please contact admissions office" does anyone know if that's good or bad? I guess I will have to wait until Monday morning to find out if I got in.

    I'm not sure what that means, I hadn't checked mine for a few days and then got an email (I think it was an email) telling me that I wasn't accepted. When I later talked to my admissions counselor he told me that even though my over all GPA was good my "science" GPA wasn't high enough so I needed to take a graduate level science class or two to prove I would be able to keep up with the program. I haven't enrolled in these as I am waiting to hear from a couple of other schools to see if I got in there or not. Good luck to you hopefully it is good news!

    What were your science grades like? This is my only real fear as well.

    I'm curious as well. I plan to apply for Spring '13 for the CN/WHNP program. I'm nervous however that I may not be competitive enough by GPA (3.6) or science GPA (3.5). Not to mention, although I'm a L&D nurse, in my city we don't have Midwifes practicing in private hospitals so I have not been able to shadow a NP in my field. I have however, been shadowing a FNP for the last year and a half and she wrote me a letter. Ugh I'm sooooo nervous that I won't be competitive enough for grad school. BTW, did you guys figure out what "contact the admissions office indicates?"

    Hello everybody,

    I am starting the FNP online program at Georgetown University this Fall 2013 ( Sept 2, 2013) and I am looking for other students that will be attending the orientation session on Sept 8-9.

    This website has been very helpful for me when I was doing my BSN and I hope it will be a great tool for my MSN as well.

    Regards,

    Caterina

    I am starting as we'll in the fall, but I believe the program starts on the 9th and the orientation session is online and will be available to complete online on our own time on the 2gu platform. If there is an orientation session I have not heard about it.

    I was told to be on campus on Monday Sept 9 and Tues sept 10. I was sent the hotel and direction to reach campus. I got the package in the mail with my acceptance letter. Hope this help.

    Hmmm...Interesting, well I called them and they said there was none. Perhaps they changed it for recently admitted folks. Anyway, I hope you have a great time!

    Sorry it has taken me forever to get back to this! I was accepted into Georgetown's online FNP program. I am starting the part time program in Sept. There is not an on campus visit. I have not received anything about having to be there on campus, but have received a lot of other information about starting after I was accepted.

    I am also a "new nurse." I recently graduated from Emory University with my BSN, where the program was very focused on research (which will help me while I am in the program).

    As of now I am awaiting my financial aid package (can't wait to see how much I have to pay for this!) and also the schedule for classes.

    That's awesome Cody! I actually switched to the full time and I'm working per diem. I plan on taking out loans to pay for the partial cost of tuition.

    Thank you very much....I am very nervous....This letter was sent by Barbara Garwood, Focus coordinator for Graceland University school of nursing. I have my focus session held on the Independence, MO Campus from Sept 9-10. I also have two letters regarding the hotels where to stay, check in/out times, attire and all the info that applies. I was surprised too because I live in Florida and it is going to be costly..but oh well, it is what it is.
