Hi everyone,

I appreciate any help I can get on this manner. I want to apply to DePaul, UIC, Loyola, and Rush, all are in IL, for their direct(advanced) entry programs for those w/ Bachelor degrees that are not nurses. I am very interested in becoming a public health NP or my true preference would be a Geriatric NP.

I am just not sure of my chance at admissions. I received my degree in Biology from Augustana College in 2010 and graduated w/ a 2.8 GPA and my science course GPA was around a 2.4. Since then, I am almost done with my Masters in Public Health at NIU where I have a 3.8. I have taken the GRE for a 2nd time and I got a 1060 with a 4.0 on the writing section.

Additionally, I am a licensed EMT-B, have worked over 1,000 in a nursing home, work as a research graduate assistant, and have logged a good amount of hours volunteering for the Red Cross. I have also shadowed a Nurse Practitioner.

I know this info doesnt account for my reference letters, interviews, personal statement, etc. but if anyone could please give me feedback on my potential to any of these programs, I would be SO grateful!

why don't you call their admissions departments and ask them? it's my experience that admissions officers are always pleased to answer these questions, and may have useful suggestions to boot.:D

My reply is a bit away from topic. How was your experience at Augustana? I’m searching for their ABSN. How was your experience there? Thank you
