Almost a year under my belt and applying to MSN

by Lammy01 Member

Is anyone else in the same boat? Anyone else working on applications right now? Im applying to start hopefully in the fall or spring. the next few weeks are going to be a crunch- finishing these essays, getting my recommenders to get everything in and working 40 hours a week.

Im applying for Psych NP programs at





and UMaryland

any advice on these programs?

I have enough money to pay for most of it up front and the rest I'll take out loans (or hopefully get some scholarships). And it is pretty expensive but, I think it will pay off in the long run. Better to do it sooner than later. Also, Im thankfully not in any debt from undergrad...

I am planning on doing the psych NP route. Are you applying to schools as well?

UPenn offers generous financial aid, from what I hear.

I've been working 4 months and I'm starting at Penn part-time in January (ANP program). It will take me about 2.5 years to finish part-time. Good luck!
