Vanderbilt Pre-Specialty (for non-RNs) MSN 2013 - page 23

    wgrussell and hewoods, I got my acceptance letter for ACNP by mail last Tuesday. Hopefully, you guys will get some good news soon! It would be great to have you both as classmates!! Are either of you going to the open house?

    Wgrussell- all she said was the latest we would know is Wednesday. And if I haven't heard to call by 3. So I'm not sure what that means. Worth11- do you know of anyone else that was accepted?? I wish I was going to the open house but I have to work this weekend' boo! I'd love to hear any info that you may get! Congrats on being accepted!

    Thanks, hewoods! I know of two others who were accepted for ACNP, but I'm not sure how or when they were notified. I'll definitely pass along any info I get, and in the meantime I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the both of you!

    I was stoked to apply for the NHSC Scholarship, but found out that us Pre-Specialty guys are ineligible. This is from their Application Guide:

    Applicants are
    ineligible if they are:
    (1) Enrolled in a physician assistant (P.A.) program and are specializing in areas other than primary health care. For example, P.A. programs with a surgical or emergency room focus;
    (2) In the pre-professional phase of their health professions education. For example, taking undergraduate pre-requisites for admission to a P.A. training program;
    (3) Enrolled in a nursing Bridge Program. For example, RN-MSN, BSN-MSN, Direct Entry, Graduate Pre-specialty or Entry to Practice programs; OR
    (4) Pursuing a doctoral degree in nursing.

    Really sucks...

    If anyone is still packing for open house, it is COLD in Nashville today with light flurries.

    I believe the pre-specialty program does count as Direct Entry - that's what it's called at almost every other school, but yeah, seems surprising that you have to actually be enrolled, so I guess it would only cover the 2nd year of our program! It seems a lot of the scholarships are that way - I know the ACNM scholarship is only for people who've completed at least 1 semester

    For those who were accepted, when is your deadline to send your deposit?

    For starters, would you rather live in New Haven or Nashville? Seems like an obvious choice to me...
