Seattle University APNIRegister Today!
- by jeomoz Mar 31, '09I just got accepted to Seattle University's APNI program and was wondering if any of my fellow future classmates were interested in starting a thread of our own.
We are about to embark on an amazing, stressful and exciting venture--June is just around the corner!
We may as well start getting to know each other now.
When I initially decided to apply to SU I found very little on allnurses, so I'm hoping this thread will also be a place where prospective APNI's can post and get some advice from us . . . eventually
So, if anyone is interested in introducing themselves I'd love to hear from you.
I look forward to meeting everyone at orientation in June
Any advice from current students is greatly appreciated too!

Congrats - that program looks fantastic. I don't know any 1st any info about SU except that the campus is amazing and its such a great atmosphere..... I've heard 2nd hand info on how the program is 'fantastic'. Congrats~
- Mar 31, '09 by jeomozThanks just cause!
I'm very excited to begin. From my experience so far SU admissions, nursing dept and faculty have been very impressive/attentive. You're right the campus is beautiful!
Are you in Seattle?
- Apr 1, '09 by ksc2004Hello Jeomoz! We meet again :-)
Thanks for starting this blog, hopefully our fellow APNI cohorts will join soon. Have you decided where about in Seattle you'll be moving to?
- Apr 1, '09 by avbc830I just wanted to say hi!
I am also in the June APNI cohort. Thank you for starting this thread as I hadn't really been able to find anything else on allnurses about this program at SU. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!
- Apr 1, '09 by APNIStudentSuch a good idea... Thanks!
So, where is everyone from? I'm here in Seattle...if anyone has questions about that. I'm looking forward to getting started, and I'm curious to hear more from all of you...
- Apr 1, '09 by avbc830I'm also a Seattle resident. What track is everyone going into? I'm in the CNM track, which will hopefully be fully approved by the end of our first year. :spin:
- Apr 1, '09 by jeomozHey Ksc2004 and Welcome everyone else too
This is so great!
Just a quick note cuz I'm at work . . .
I'm in the Psych NP w/ Addictions focus and moving to Seattle from the bay area. I've been looking for apts in Capital Hill only because I'm not at all familiar w/ Seattle. My first visit to Seattle was for my interview. I loved it!
Anyone know any other neighborhoods worth searching for an apt?
- Apr 1, '09 by APNIStudentCap Hill is good cuz its close to campus. On the less expensive but still walking/biking distance areas, I'd recommend also checking out Beacon Hill, International District, and Central District. Anything in Mt Baker, Leschi, Madrona, Madison Valley, Eastlake and Montlake neighborhoods is also bikable or busable to campus. Of course, First Hill/downtown are close too, but more expensive unless you're condo shopping... I've heard nice studios are going for around $900/mo, with one bedrooms a little more right now. I know someone who got a one bed for $600 recently but it was kinda nasty. Shared housing is always an option- see craigslist. The valley areas of Seattle (Madison Valley, Central Valley Leschi ridge (go figure), International district adn Beacon Hill are maybe a little sketchier than areas of Madrona or Capitol Hill. That said, anywhere is Seattle is mellower than most of the Bay Area, so unless you've been hiding in Marin, all of Seattle will feel like a quaint little village.
