Seattle U - APNI 2013

  1. 0 Hello everyone - this is my second time applying. A month ago, I bombed the interview!

    If this is your first time applying, there's a world of information from previous years, especially from the 2012 thread where we reached more than one thousand messages.

    I know it's super early to start this thread, but this whole thing takes a long time to prepare and the more time we have before the deadline, the better.

    I'm from the Seattle area, my background is Microbiology from the UW and I am again applying for the midwifery track.

    Hello!

    I came across the 2012 thread awhile ago and realized how helpful and supportive it can be.

    I am also from the Seattle area. I graduated last June (2011) with a BA in Sociology and a BA in Spanish from Seattle University and since have been doing everything I can to prepare to apply for the APNI - CNM track. I have my fingers very crossed for 2013!

    Hello, Calinca.

    Good luck in your application. I'm sorry to hear you weren't accepted this cycle.

    I will be applying in 2013 to a few of the direct entry programs, as well.

    I'm getting ready to re-take Anatomy and Physiology, as well as Micro, since my previous grades no longer count. Vanderbilt is likely to be my first choice, and beginning next year, they will require A&P and Micro to be taken within the previous five years.

    I look forward to hearing from others as we navigate this process.

    Greetings All!

    Calinca- I have been following the threads for the past year and a half. I have been that "lurker", I hope to not sound creepy but I have been waiting for the right timing to join the thread! Truthfully, I was hoping you would start the thread. . I was bummed to hear your news but been inspired by your story! However, I would look forward to being your potential classmate.

    I grew up in Wyoming and have a BS in Family and Consumer Science from the University of Idaho. I graduated in 03' so like most of you all I have been retaking courses as they have been out to of the time allowance. I am going to Bellevue College right now to accomplish this. I do have some military background in healthcare recently. I will be applying to the FNP track, but have been thinking about AGNP as well. I am leaning towards FNP.

    Good luck to everyone and I look forward to bonding with you all!

    Sandrabeth, these threads helped me in more ways than one, that's why I keep coming back - and reading posts like yours really keep me going.

    I hope I can learn from my mistakes and that the lessons that I learned can benefit all of you too. I would be delighted to be your classmate, I already can tell. I hope I pass the interview this time.

    Thank you, Calinca!

    I'm still considering track options, trying to decide between FNP and Psych. I've got a strong interest in psych which led to a lot of undergrad hours, but right now I'm leaning towards FNP. I may end up dual-credentialing down the road if all goes well.

    My background is in respiratory therapy, but I transitioned to Industry several years ago and currently work as a sales representative for medical devices.

    Good luck to you!

    Hello all!

    I am so happy to have found this post! I am also going to be applying for the 2013 APNI's AGNP track. I have a BA in public relations and a BA in fashion merchandising (how more irrelevant can it get!!). I have worked in healthcare the last two years and have spent the last year getting my pre-requisites done. As "zig-zagged" as my path may be, I am so excited to be finally working towards a goal that really fits with me. I know we still have awhile but I am wanting to get as familiar as I can with this application process and program.

    Good luck to everyone and I look forward to getting to know you all more in the next several months!

    I am just starting to think about Seattle U's grad program. Can anyone give me a sense of what SU looks for in an applicant to these programs? What sort of experience, GPA, etc is required to get in? I have a BA in religious studies and experience as a caregiver. I will be working as a CNA in a hospital starting this summer. I am not sure which track I would go for yet but most likely would want the FNP track. Also, is there a good way to get more info from SU, like a information session or something?

    I should say that I have looked at the requirements on the website and I have the pre-reqs completed. Up to this point I have been looking more at 2 yr RN programs near where I live. I would need to relocate for a BSN or for a grad program, which is why I haven't looked into these options too much yet. I LOVED the pre-reqs and found studying the human body really fascinating and exciting, which is partly why I am now thinking I might want to go the nurse practitioner route.

    Knightr4, welcome!

    They have presential info sessions every once in a while and also one podcasted. I'm remember listening to it last year but now I don't seem to find it.

    It doesn't matter what kind of bachelor degree you have, but what you have been doing outside of school matters a lot, i.e. how do you give back to people? Read the school mission and think if your life in general matches with it. Then go from there.. CNA work will give you a lof of patient contact which is great, but together with clinical skills you should have a good understanding what social justice is and how you are going to change the world with you degree. Basically: how can Seattle U help you achieve your goals? What do you bring to the school? Hope that helps!

    What does everyone perceive the job market to be like for graduates like us who will have no nursing experience. This is my main concern with this program and I would love to know what other people think of it. Does anyone know FNPs from this accelerated program that was employed right after?
