If I'm not mistaken, aren't you gaining your clinical experience while you're working as a nurse? I was under the impression that 1 year clinical experience was basically a year work experience as an RN. I'm considering the AE MSN program but I don't think I'm all that competitive and would definitely have to retake A&P and I now suck at standardized test. I should really stop second guessing myself though. Bump it...I'm going for it! Count me in for the 2010 program :-)
Phase 1 (first year) you learn all your basic nursing that you need to pass NCLEX. You will have clinicals during this time but will not get paid. After phase 1 you take NCLEX and become a RN. You then secure a job and work as a RN while you take classes for phase 2 (msn) portion. Hope this helps!
I am currently in the AE MSN class now. You can either take the GRE or MAT for admission.
We get more clinical hours than the BSN students in one year, so you definitely get experience. Also, once you start working as an RN to gain even more experience, you are required to take 5 graduate courses (all concentrations require these same courses), which is part of phase II. While you are taking those graduate courses, you will then have experience, so you definitely qualify to apply for those concentrations.
If you get accepted into the AE MSN, you are in the graduate program. In the late spring, we will tell them which concentration we want to pursue, so this information can be given to the appropriate people for the perspective concentrations.
If you have any other questions, I will be happy to try and answer them.
The instructors are wonderful, and they want you to succeed.
Kaystho and Go ECU,
Do you know how many people the ECU MSN AE program usually takes off the waiting list? For example, how many people got into your year from the waiting list? Thanks!
It depends. There were 30 slots in the program when I went through. One person dropped out the first day and they were replaced. The number of people chosen from the wait list will just depend on whether someone decides not to pursue the program. Good luck.
Wow! The first day. Thanks for your optimism. They still take 30.
Oh don't worry, you will do fine. The person that dropped out had been accepted in the BSN program also and felt that the pace would be better suited for her.
So sorry.I was afraid you would misread that. This is what I meant: There is hope to get IN to the program, even on the first day of classes!
How much is tuition for the AE MSN program?
Sorry if I'm resurrecting this...
Oh, and also, is it really next-to-impossible for an out-of-state resident to get into ECU's Alternate-Entry MSN program?
