Yeah, I know... I'm waaaay ahead of time :) But I thought there might be some people planning ahead like me. I'm graduating in December and I thought some others might like to discuss what you are doing to help you get in! I have... Read More

    Anyone know when we are supposed to hear something? Do they only contact you if you are getting an interview?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on my letter of intent at the moment and then will finally be finished my application! I'm from PA but seriously looking to relocate and thought this was such an appealing program for many reasons. My GPA is a 3.64 but other than one summer of CNA work, my experience isn't too strong for the healthcare field. I graduated from an accelerated second degree program this summer so I'm hoping that is taken into consideration regarding my lack of work experience. The point system is a bit disheartening because I feel as though I will be lacking in the volunteer/work/leadership end. Oh well, I am applying and hoping for the best! Good luck to everyone!
    What track are you applying for?

    I think they let everyone know during the last week of September (on/after the 24th from previous threads). Whatever happens ama3t, I hope you have a wonderful final semester.

    @itrust I applied for adult critical care. Seems pretty competitive from past threads, but decided to stick with my interest. What about you?

    I was a little bummed, but I had been trying to decide between women's health and peds anyway, so I just replied that I would like peds instead. I'm guessing they didn't get enough people apply to women's health to make it worth keeping it in the program this year. I'm really anxious about hearing back from them. Should be this week, right? Anyone heard anything yet? I keep checking my e-mail hoping for some news, but nothing yet.

    I don't think its lack of interest. They only take like 5 in Women's Health, more than that applied at my school alone. I know a girl who got it last year who said they are already overstaffed and transfers are frozen for now! I think Vandy has been having a lot of issues lately... IDK if ya'll heard they are making nurses on some units do janitorial work?! And layed off a TON of people over the summer. But yet I still wanna work there... haha.
