I applied to 3 Nursing Schools for the 2011 academic year.:confused::confused::confused: I am particularly interested in the CNL program at UMD and I am wondering what the turn-around time is for submitted applications. My status currently indicates:complete Ready for Review.What does this mean? How long shoud I wait before I get a response? What is the next step? How much is the deposit if you do get admitted? And lastly, has anyone applied that didn't get in? If you where accepted and graduated/currently attending-how is the course load?:coollook:

Thank you,

TC :clown:

I think you might get a better response if you posted this on your local board. Go to the top and select the tab that says "region" then "US" and then find your board there.

Good luck!

Hi there -

I'm graduating in May from the CNL program. They give you an option of 16 or 21/24 (depending on which semester you're admitted for) months for completion. If you choose 16, be ready for a heavy course load - especially in the first and last semester.

I don't remember how long it took to hear back though, I'm sorry. And the initial deposit a couple years ago was $400.

Good luck!

Read up on the Fall 2010 and 2009 UMB threads for time to admittance. I don't recall the exact timeframe, but I remember it taking longer for CNL's to be decided upon then traditional BSN students, and trad students trend toward 5-6 weeks for fall admissions.
