Thanks for sharing, everyone. It is SO nice to know that there are other people out there who are trying to make these same (exciting!) decisions as well.

PinkEagle- Do you know anything about whether or not the Masters level credits at Hopkins would count as transfer credits towards an AP degree elsewhere? I am not as certain as you are, but CRNA is definitely one of the possibilities I've been exploring.

@PinkEagle I also chose to apply to ABSN program because I want to get my foundation down. Plus if I get employment first, I can start paying off debt and my employer might pay for me to go back to school. Plus who knows what's gonna happen in a few yrs with obamacare. jhu is already expensive. sometimes i think an RN is an RN haha

but also know that CRNA requires at least 2 yrs of ICU experience.

I applied for the ABSN in mid September. All my documents are in. My undergrad GPA is 3.91 and my nursing prereqs GPA is 4.0. It will be lovely to hear their decision soon.

@spaceshuttleboy, i assume you are male applying. in many schools, males have a higher chance of getting in since some schools want a 50% male population.

that being said, a hopkins grad told me that some regret going there because of amount of student loans that they'll have to pay back. but however, it is one of my top choices.

Yep, I am male. I would hope, though, that my chances of getting in depend more on my grades than my sex. If I got in, I would likely anguish over whether they had accepted me for being a token male, or for my grades, which are good and are worth meriting.

You make a good point about the cost of studying at Johns Hopkins. Their own site shows that the cost of attention (tuition with housing, etc.) is over $103,000. That's, of course, an insane amount of money to spend for an entry-level nursing degree. If I were accepted, I'd only go to Hopkins if they also included some sort of funding in the acceptance package to mitigate the cost I'd incur to go. So, I am equally considering attending other schools with lower tuition rates. To be financially wise, a prospective nurse shouldn't attend a school on name alone, at the cost of accumulating a substantial debt to attend. Every nurse I have spoken with have repeatedly said that the sole important thing is to pass the board and get a job at a hospital, which is possible regardless of the school you went to.

those are really high stats.... everyone has really high stats! how's it possible?!!! going to a school cut throat like UCLA, an A is like nearly impossible in the science classes. Chemistry is taken with pre-meds.

also, do they read their applications in the order they come in? i've heard people say that for some schools if you submit yours later than most people, chances are you won't get in, even if they're not rolling.

@PinkEagle. There are no direct entry CRNA programs like NP programs. I always thought I wanted to go NP route but CRNA seems the way to go!

Actually there are! It's a pretty big misconception but direct entry CRNA programs DO exist! Boston University and Columbia University offer them and I'm applying to both!

I went to GW and it was just as bad!! All the nursing prereqs were taken with pre meds, so the competition was super high!!

What I'm really curious about is if they look at grades differently depending on where they come from? Like when I was a pre-med, I knew that admissions tend to give more weight to classes taken at a tough/competitive 4-year institution than a 2-year community college. The nursing program at my local community college doesn't care where you took the class, I'm kinda hoping JHU won't be the same!

I'm not sure if they would transfer which is why I'm not applying to any BSN/MS programs. PLUS, keep in mind that AP degree programs are being transformed into Doctorate programs. So I am personally going to only apply to doctorate CRNA programs, unless I get into Columbia's direct entry program (which is a master's program) because I would be grandfathered into a doctorate degree.
