    Interviewed at 4 schools, wait listed at 2, accepted to one of those, accepted to another and rejected from my first interview because I bombed it.

    Interviewing was a learning experience, and I soon learned that I needed to get more involved and start doing things to make myself stand out. The last school I applied to was a completely different experience than all the other interviews. I felt so much more confident and ready for school. I had a killer goal statement along with my interview going extremely well. I was notified of acceptance in less than 2 weeks. I am now in my 2nd semester and loving my program! I still can't believe I'm really here!

    Reason I picked my program:

    DNP, frontloaded, small class size, invested in students' success, trained to be independent providers
