I got in!!!!!!! St. Raphael in CT


Hello everyone, just wanted to first off thank everyone I met on here and even those I did not. Regardless of n e interaction, I can't talk highly enough about this website. I started out this journey without a clue in the world. By reading many of the threads n post on here, I gained invaluable insight to helping me get where I am today. Thank you so very much to you all.

Now that I'm in, just curious if n e other fellow students r on here. Would love to meet some. Also if n e one or current students have some further insight on the school or advice, I would definitely appreciate n e thing that comes my way.

congrats...i got in too....see you in may

Hi Vic, thank u n congrats to u as well. R u from the area? If not, when r u planning on moving? I'm from mass n still debating move time n contemplating a per diem job. I heard they pay well ct for nsg jobs. In n e case its nice to meet a fellow future classmate.

Hi Vic, O cool, i'm from MA. I'm guessin i'm moving around that time or mid may. we'll c. Has anyone contacted you regarding filing financial aid. that's one part i dont wanna miss. lol. In any case, i wish you the best. And Merry Christmas. i Hope you're enjoying the special day.

Congrats on ur acceptance. Any insight on what to expect from the interview.

happy holidays....havent heard anything about financial aid but just decided to fill out fafsa just in case....

Hi VasocativeRN,

Happy Holidays. The interview process was alright. All the applicants met in the same room. The director went over the program, clinicals and any information pertaining to the time you will be spending at the school. After that, we were all led out in groups to tag along with some students for a tour thru their OR. The remainder of the group stay in the conference room and mingle with other current students. You're given plenty of time to speak with them individually and get any questions you may have answered. Then each applicant individually meet with the admission committee(propably 4-5 people at once). Afterwards, you're free to go home. Are you planning on applynig there or scheduled for an interview. If you are, best of luck.


Thanx for the info. Just wanted some general insight into interview process.

Was ir nerve wrecking?

I didn't think the interview was bad. The program director is very nice and easy going. Definitely wasn't high pressure. I'm sure you'll do great!

hey marco, did u hear anything during your interview about the seniors selling their textbooks to us?

Hey Vic,

I don't recall hearing that but I'm sure its possible as long as the professors keep the same books. I haven't gotten the complete syllabus from ccsu yet.... Did u get the financial aid in order? I did the fafsa n then was told from ccsu for the coa to determine how much I qualify for. Also do u remember which hospitals we rotate thru. I was trying to figure out where to live during clinical phase. I decided to live at the gas house while at ccsu.

****I was told they were waiting on st. Raphael for the COA to determine how much I qualify for

What does Coa stand for? I applied for fafsa but haven't heard anything. I'm gonna be in ccsu gas house too..guess were roommates for a yr lol. Not sure about clinical sites but probably near new haven I assume

Hey missnurses01,

As always, a pleasure to hear from you. The clock is ticking on me, only a few more months left. I still have things i need to get an order to start. But i'm hoping all gets done in due time so i can feel at peace before the start of school. I'm sure things are a lot more hectic for you. husband, children and moving cross country. I cant imagine the hassle. But hey, it's all for a good cause. and i'm happy for you.
