    Is everyone supposed to receive the financial aid packet regardless of admittance status?

    have any direct entry (already RN BSN) candidates received a phone call for an interview for FNP or any other specialty?
  5. by   nurserobyn89

    Hello, did anyone take any of the prerequisite courses online? Vanderbilt's School of Nursing's website specifically states that prerequisites can be taken at any university, community college, or online. I hope this applies to science courses as well. Did anyone get accepted with online science courses?

    Hello Trin22!
    Which prerequisite courses are you speaking of? I don't know of many online BSN programs.. but there are many RN to BSN courses online! Is this what you mean?
    My friend had her ASN and did her RN to BSN online through Boise State University and got accepted into the Family Nurse Practitioner program last year. Hope this helps a bit!

    Have any FNP applicants received any updates or interviews? Particularly RN BSN applicants?

    Hello all,

    I applied for the CNM program. Evidently much later than everyone else. Which just adds to the mounting nervous energy! I have a 3.8 cumulative GPA, but my GRE was pretty disappointing: 157, 149, 3.5, obviously no one really knows what their references say and I read back on my interview and worry I didn't say enough or said too much or (on and on).. so yes. Ball of nerves.

    I have known midwifery was my path for the past few years (always knew caring for women and babies, but didn't discover midwifery as a profession until 2010), participated in a doula workshop and have done some volunteer doula work, but I still worry that isn't enough. Vanderbilt is impressive in every aspect. There is no other program I would rather be in.

    Here's so a beautiful hope <3

    Got an email for a phone interview for next week. Anyone else get this or has already done a phone interview? Any idea what to expect from it?

    I am applying for FNP and am already an RN. Getting kinda anxious with all this waiting.

    No email - but worried because I don't check my junk mail before I deleted. Do all FNP applicants have a phone interview?

    I wasn't aware that FNP applicants were required to do interviews.. ahhh!!
