This thread is for applicants applying to Johns Hopkins, for either the ABSN or the new Master's Entry program. I've searched a few times and haven't found a thread for this year's admissions cycle, so I decided to start one.

After lots of thinking, I decided to apply to the Master's Entry instead of the ABSN. Anyone else out there applying?

Great, I'm glad there are others out there. Are you all almost done with your apps?

I wish the deadline for the master's entry was sooner. I wonder how soon we would find out about acceptances since the deadline is January 1st

Did anyone else have a difficult time deciding between applying to the ABSN or the Masters' Entry options? If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing why you chose what you did.

Do these 2 fulfill the human development requirement?

Psychology 41: Life-span Psychology: From Infancy to Old Age

This course presents the psychological development of the person from the prenatal stage through old age and death. Emphasis is placed on theories and their application to the behavioral, cognitive, social, and interconnectedness of all stages of life.

PSYCH 19, LIFESPAN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT 3 UNITS

Transfer: UC, CSU • Prerequisite: Psychology 1.

This course traces physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development throughout the lifespan from conception through aging and dying. The impact on the individual of the family, the culture, and socio-economic factors will be a special emphasis. Theoretical understanding of lifespan issues will provide a foundation for exploration of their practical implications at each stage of development. This course is designed for the Registered Nursing Program and is not appropriate for Child Development and Elementary Education transfer students.

Since the Master's Entry and ABSN are around the same cost, I couldn't really justify spending that much on another Bachelor's. But ending a whole year earlier was a big advantage to me re: the ABSN program.

Lagirl, I think your best bet is to email JHUSON and find out. Those two classes sound OK to me though, but JHUSON would have the final say.

YAY!! I'm so glad there's a thread for this!! I'm applying to the ABSN program because I DO want to be a CRNA and they don't have an Anesthesia program. I feel like I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off! I was so good a couple months ago, but things got so crazy once my new full time job started along with part time school. All I need to finish the essays and hound my boss for my LORs!

@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!
