DUKE DNP/MSN Spring 2018

Posted

I was just wondering if anyone has applied to Duke for one of their graduate programs for Spring of 2018? I chose to go the BSN-DNP w/ FNP track route. Now I am patiently waiting for applications to close and interviews to go out. I would love to connect with other students who are applying! Also I would love to hear feedback from any current or past students. Thanks!

I applied to Duke for MSN to DNP program for Spring 2018. I have not heard anything though. I am curious when we will receive an update.

Hey! I also applied to Duke, but for their RN to Msn program. My application still says incomplete even though they have all of my scores and transcripts. Are you having any similar issues?

Thank you!

My application says incomplete too beacause I did not send GRE scores (not required in my case). I emailed admissions and was told that it would be updated once they looked at applications. I assume they have not started reviewing applications. I was told during a webinar that invitations to interview (or not) would be sent in June.

The waiting game is difficult!!

Thank you! That is helpful to know. Do you happen to know if the interview dates are already set?

I agree the waiting game is terrible! I check everyday even though I know good and well there's no update yet haha.

My app also still says incomplete and I called to verify everything was there. Since the transcripts are on there as are my GRE scores. They said they will be updating those soon. That call was on Friday 05/26. I was told it would be another 3-4 weeks before we got intervie offers. So at this point I'm thinking we may not know anything until the end of June or early July :/. What track did you guys apply into? FNP? I did FNP for the MSN portion w/ a speciality in HIV/AIDS studies and chose to do full-time. I was told if you don't get accepted into the BSN to DNP, that you're still considered for the MSN, so that's a good thing in my book! Good luck to you guys!

As far as I know, dates have not been set.

I am already an FNP with MSN. I just want to earn DNP. My application still says incomplete. I do not believe they have started processing yet. I did revive the email about interviews taking place sometime in July. I assume you all received that too? If that is the case, maybe we will find out if we get an interview sometime in the next couple of weeks. The wait continues... ;)

I received email May 24. It specifically mentioned application for DNP. If you applied for MSN, maybe it is different??

Just an update: I noticed my application is now marked complete on the Duke site. Until now, it said incomplete because I was not required to submit GRE scores. I guess that means they are reviewing applications now!

Yeah I just checked today and my application now says complete also! And I applied to the BSN to DNP program. So I'd earn my MSN and DNP. I didn't get the email though, which is weird I guess. Or maybe it's because you already have your man?

I didn't get any email, either. I only applied for the MSN program, though.

Did you ever receive an email about interview time period?

Matthew.RN

Ok... so I called just now and the lady told me that they are hoping to have interview decisions out by the end of the month and we will be notified via email. So it looks like we have a couple of more weeks to wait!
