I applied for the FNP program at USI and hope to start this fall, as well. I received an email from the Admissions Office stating admission decisions would be mailed on March 1st. I'm not sure if that is true for all NP specialties, or just FNP. I applied back in October--so I'm happy the wait is almost over. Best wishes.
Hi, I am currently in the process of applying to USI's ACNP program for Fall 2014. I would greatly appreciate any advice you have on the admission process.Specifically, the admission essay and how detailed your resume was. I am currently in the ICU and have been for the past year and half, but have 3 years exp as a med-surg nurse. Would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you!
You cannot find an NP program that is 100% on line. You will always have 400hr-700hr for your practium. Also some programs require you to go onsite for your physical assessment portion. This is information based on my personal research.
Just FYI, USI requires two separate applications... one for the SON and one for graduate studies. I was not aware at the time of application and was not considered because I did not apply to Graduate Studies. Luckily, I had other offers. Not sure if they still conduct their business this way.
