I was very much considering the program at UCSF but just looking at how competitive it is has me *&%! in my pants.
Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated-thanks!
Do remember, though, that UCSF 'regular' MSN programs generally admit the majority of those post BSN applicants who achieve the required stats--gpa, letters of rec, GRE, etc...
The soil-yer-pants competition is for the entry level master's(direct entry for non RN's w/another degree) and is a whole different ballgame than admissions for regular MSN specialty programs.
Which is why I usually advise folks to not re-apply there year after year(which many appear to do) and instead get the BSN anywhere and as quickly as possible so they can apply to MSN portion only.
It boggles my mind that some are willing to do this when alternatively doing a 1 year accelerated BSN program somewhere could actually allow them to matriculate and graduate with the same UCSF co-hort they were initially denied acceptance with in the first place.
Boggles the mind....
Anyway, not online but UCSF does great block face to face class scheduling that seems quite do-able w/a job and life..
