    I applied to the direct entry psych/mental health NP specialty. I just had my phone interview today. They said they will send out admissions decisions the first week of march.

    Thanks MrSensitivity! You too! I just went back through my essays last week and found that I had made two misspellings in the same paragraph. I think I might have copied and pasted an older draft into the application.. ugghhhh.. I feel like such a bonehead.. I know they look at that stuff too But still.. my fingers are crossed!

    I wouldn't worry about it, Jenny.J. Sure they look at it, but only to make sure you know what you're getting into. They told me that decisions are almost entirely based on GPA and GRE.

    I applied to the Direct Entry Acute Care NP. LetsChill, I'm assuming you're already an RN? I've been subscribed to this conversation for a couple days now and I haven't really read anybody talking about the ACNP direct entry track so it's nice to know that I'm not the only one!!

    actually your "fit" into a particular program based on essay responses and phone interview weigh heavily as well...so it is not so GPA and GRE scores

    Moicurn,
    I am an RN, and I'm also glad to see another direct entry ACNP on here. I'm from Saint Louis and last March I went to the open house at Vandy and I asked ******, the program director, if they still had spots for the direct entry ACNP program and she said they did. And this was all the way in March, after decisions would have been made for last fall. I took that as good news!

    Where are you from? Moving to TN? Or distance?

    Sarahdukie,
    I would rather not use her name in a forum like this. I will try to PM you.

    LetsChill,
    I'm from Columbia, Missouri!!! I hope to do the distance program at Vandy. That makes me feel better that they had spots open last year so hopefully we'll both get in!!
