APU EENAP Summer 2011

MiyaLuv MiyaLuv (New) New

Hi Everyone,

So I received this email telling me I was accepted to APU's EENAP Summer 2011 class.

But this was 2 weeks ago and I cant get a hold of anyone there.

If you got in as well for this term, do you have any info on this?

Thank you!!!

I was accepted to the Summer 2011 term as well. I hadn't heard anything so I called the administrative assistant in the graduate nursing dept and she said that we should be receiving a packet with all of the information in the near future, and from there we put the deposit down.

Has anyone heard of any scholarship programs available? I know in the past Kaiser offered some type of assistance. Does anyone have any information on that?

I got accepted to EENAP summer 2011 in San Bernardino. Once the official transcript with posted degree is recieved then i guess you can talk to the fin aid counselor and they should answer all questions regarding scholarships and fafsa. once azusa receives my transcript, ill be more eager to get more info in regards to this matter.

I applied for APU and I was just wondering when did you apply to APU and how long was the wait for you to get in to this term?

I applied around Feb and was invited for an interview/info session a month after. Then I got my acceptance letter a month after that. The entire time took ~ 3 months. pretty quick i think but im sure there are many waitlists.

Hello,

Congratulations on your acceptance. I was accepted to the EENAP program for Summer 2011 in San Diego. I applied early last year and was told that I was done with all my prerequisites. Today I received a letter requesting the deposit and stating I have to take a research class now that they have merged the SCAN and EENAP programs into the ELM program before I can start the Summer term. Does anyone know anything about this? I'm worried because classes already began at most colleges for the Fall. The next time I would be able to take the class is Spring 2011 but this may run into the start of the Summer term. I don't know where I can take the class in San Diego. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.

Hi Azusa SD EENAP graduates,

I'll be starting soon ELM in SD (EENAP). Can someone from the new grads of the EENAP advise about any difficulties go through this program, and about graduation rate, the number who in and out of the program. Thanks for future response.

Kyshia- I heard they are working on allowing some students to do the research methods class while they are enrolled in the program. I can Mesa college has several courses, they are under Psych. I got a full list of acceptable courses from Rene at the Regional office in SD. I can send it to you if you want.

Good Luck! I have been accepted in the Jan 2011 cohort but I haven't received my information package yet. Hopefully I will get it soon.

Hi all!

I'll be applying for the Azusa ELM program next semester and I just wanted to get an idea of the typical profile is of a student who was accepted!

I know most of the people who replied on this thread were accepted and will be attending next year, so I have a couple questions if any of you have time to answer them.

What was your undergraduate GPA?

What were your grades like in your prerequisites?

Did you have previous health care experience?

How long did it take to receive an interview after your application, and how long after the interview did it take to hear of your acceptance?

Have you visited the campus you will be attending? If so, do you have any advice/tips/positives/negatives to share about that campus? Is it possible to apply to all three of the APU locations and be accepted to whichever one has a spot open?

I know some of these questions may be very personal, so feel free to send me a private message or e-mail if you want! Can people send e-mails on allnurses? I'm new to this website/forum, so I'm not sure. Or if you do feel comfortable answering these questions in this thread, feel free!! I'm almost done with my prereqs and I can't wait to apply. I'm really crossing my fingers that I'll get in, but it's always nice to have some information beforehand regarding what it takes to be a competitive applicant.

THANK YOUUUU!!! And congrats on getting in! :yeah:

I am taking the research methodology psyc class at Chabot Community College in northern California. It was impossible to find. Since I'm going to be in the summer 2011 San Diego ELM program they said it wasn't going to be offered there. If you can't find the prereq at a local college they do offer it at Phoenix University online in 5 weeks but it is quite expensive (over $2000). Community college is a lot cheaper and if you have the time it's probably the best option.

Somebody please answer justinek, this program is my first choice and I've GOT to know the lowdown on accepted students profiles!

Thanks for your help!

Justinek & Suiteums...

My Undergrad gpa was 3.6 (graduated in 2003 :uhoh3:)

My pre-reqs are at 4.0

I applied in November 2009 and it wasnt until March 2010 that I heard back from them for an Interview.

It took another 2 months until I heard I was accepted for the Summer 2011 ELM program.

During the time I was taking my pre-reqs, I was also volunteering at a Hospital. Other than this, I had no prior health care experiences.

I hope this bit of info helps... :)

Thanks! That is almost exactly my profile, down to graduating in 2003:uhoh3:. Although MY undergrad GPA was 3.1 (:

Anyone here currently in the ELM/EENAP program? While waiting until I start the program, I've been looking into various ways to help cover tuition.

Can anyone share their situation w/ financial aid & tuition? I want to make productive use of my time (saving & applying for scholarships & doing whatever it takes!!) until I have to start the program. I would love any tips/strategies that you might want to share! =)

I am currently in the ELM program. Financial aid covered my tuition. We are considered graduate students, so there is usually enough to cover the costs of tuition. Books can be expensive for your first semester. APU offers a "package" at around $1200. I chose to buy my books off amazon/craigslist etc for about $800. So I would suggest saving money to buy books on your own. I had money left over from financial aid to buy the books, but I chose not to use.

As far as scholarships go, a lot of the ones I found want you to be in school already. Just keep searching the internet for them. The school will have a few to offer as well. One that was offered is for under-represented groups in the nursing field (males, latino's, African Americans- you will get more info once you start) I applied to a few on my own since I didn't qualify.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks Kurlaub!

Do you mind if I ask how much tuition is? Since they merged the EENAP and SCAN program, I feel like they might have changed tuition prices? On the ELM website it says that tuition is now $58,315 or $545/unit. That seems a lot more than I originally saw on the website when I applied last May and its hard to imagine that it has increased that much.

For my cohort, tuition is about $40K, with 69 units at $500 a unit for the BSN. I am not sure about the Master's tuition though.

I applied to APU in august for the Summer 2011 / Fall 2011 MEPN FNP program. Got an interview with the School of Nursing Directors / pre admissions advising in November (spent 500 dollars flying there and renting a car / hotel)...One week later, I get mail from the Graduate School saying that their program was full for 2011 and I was rejected...all of this happened while I was still in contact with the directors of the school of nursing.

I emailed the graduate school (I forgot what the person's name was) and asked if they could re-consider their decision and if I could appeal it, he said no because the program was full for my year. Told me to reapply again for another year....

I pretty much have a bad view of APU now and will not be applying even though the directors of my program have told me to try again.

Are you in the ELM program at the main campus (Azusa)? I have been accepted into the Fall 2011 at San Bernardino. However, I am quite confuse regarding the prelicensure and MSN portion. I was told that I would complete the prelicensure at San Bernardino, but then would have to attend Azusa campus for the remainder of the MSN portion. Is this your experience?

No, I am at the San Diego campus and they have an MSN program there, so I won't need to go to the Azusa campus. Bummer that SB doesn't have the program yet.
