I applied for the PNP/DNP program at University of Missouri (columbia). I got the call today for an interview!!!! I'm excited but worried. I know its not a gaurantee of acceptance, but what do you think the chances are of going through an interview and being accepted??? I'm not the greatest an interviewing, I don't respond well with off the wall questions. What types of things do they ask that I might be able to prepare for??? So nervous!!!!!
