    I do not know the Facebook group. The students accepted for the 2013 cohort formed it themselves and did not invite me to join. It is a student-to-student network.

    What's the facebook link for the 2013 cohort? I'm tentatively looking at the 2014 cohort--pending my husband gets stationed in the D.C/VA area (active-duty USAF). Looks like an incredible program! Would like to hear more about it as students progress. Wishing you all the best and congrats on your acceptance!
    I sent you a link privately because they are not allowed to be posted publicly. We begin orientation next week and classes the following, so I am certain we will all have a lot to share once we start! I think the whole group is anxious to get started on this journey. Let me know if you have any questions

    Hello! I am interested in the CNL program and will be applying for the Class of 2016. I have been working in the mental health field for 7 years. Is mental health considered highly for healthcare experience? I have also been a volunteer with the American Red Cross for 2 years. I am just preparing to increase my chances of acceptance and was hoping to get some advice from those of you who were recently accepted. I have to take Anatomy I & II at PVCC in the coming months. I will not have them completely finished before I apply. I am hoping this will not hurt me too badly. I took a lot of Biology and Chemistry and did well in those in undergrad. I also had high scores the other pre-reqs. I also have a Master's degree in Psychology. If anyone has any advice please let me know! Thank you and good luck to everyone starting this week!

    Hello,

    I highly suggest taking your A&P classes with Dr. ***** at PVCC. He is the best professor and will prepare you well for entering the nursing field. I didn't have much hands on health experience, however, I did volunteer for about a year in the ED and PICU combined. I still had to complete developmental psychology when I applied and I was accepted. I recall the UVA GRAD NURSING on here mentioning in one of the forums that A's are the usual for prospective students with pre-reqs. I believe the holistic approach is taken during the application process. I am certain he will comment on this thread with better input. Good luck!

    Once I am able to PM I will ask you the professor's name. I have completed all other pre-reqs. I am going to look into volunteering at a nursing home that I often visit in my current job. They could use the help and I could use all the extra experience I can get. Thank you!

    Buckeyecass:

    Of course mental health can provide valuable healthcare experience. Nurses are needed in many settings, and worthwhile experiences in many settings and across the full care continuum can inform your desire to become a nurse.

    Soulshine is correct - we use a very holistic review and look at your overall academic profile, the grades in the prerequsite classes, your essays, your recommendations, your healthcare experience, as well as your professional work/volunteer experiences. You do not need to have all of the prereqs done at the time of application; they need to be complete by the time classes start next May. About 1/2 of those offered admissions last year had not completed all of the prereqs.

    Our faculty is voting tomorrow (5/13) on adding a possible fifth class. Check the website later this week to see if it has been added.

    Thank you so much! That is very encouraging and helpful information. I will be checking the website! I have also contacted Martha Jefferson to volunteer there for some extra experience while I am taking my pre-reqs! Thanks again!

    I saw the new pre-req posted. I am attempting to find somewhere online to take it this summer. I am not considered Virginia in-state resident until July 30 and I really don't want to pay 1200 bucks to take it. My question is, does this pre-req require a lab or is it just the lecture? Thank you!

    The course does not need to be completed before you apply. It needs to be complete before you start the program (if accepted). Wait to take it in a term when you have instate tuition benefits

    I just didn't want to take it at the same time as I'm taking Anatomy because I still have to work full-time until I get accepted to a nursing program. Is the lab required with microbiology? I found a course in Ohio that has the lecture portion online, but has an in-class lab. I asked them if I was able to just take the lecture portion if the lab is not required for the CNL program. Thanks!
