I just completed my application for JHU Entry into MSN Nursing Spring 2020 application. I was waitlisted for Fall 2019 and was not accepted. Anyone else out there applying for a second time? Who has completed their application? Best of LUCK!

@VwBee89 I have about a 3.8 GPA with limited healthcare experience, but a degree in a health-related field. It seems like experience and GPA don't really matter as much as they do to other schools to be honest. I think they just want unique and motivated applicants!

Can anyone share how they are planning to finance this degree? Also, why did you choose to apply to an entry MSN program vs. an accelerated 2nd bachelor's?

What do you mean by it seems like experience and GPA dont really matter as they do to other schools? I think your GPA is awesome! My Cum GPA is some crap honestly because my freshman /sophmore year in college i was in an abusive relationship so it was a tough time for me. But since then I have transferred and my GPA has been improving and this past semester I took 20 credits and have gotten a 4.0 GPA. I was also a CNA for 6 months and now a pharm tech. I just really hope I have a chance despite my low cumlative gpa.

I guess I just mean that one negative aspect of your application won't make them reject you. For example, I know a girl that got in with like a 2.4 GPA but had really good experience

I was under the impression that GPA matters much more than healthcare experience. I understand the importance of GPA but I feel that having significant experience in healthcare will contribute to a lower burn out rate in nursing. Nursing as with any profession is medicine is taxing and I believe it is important to know what type of career you are getting into. (This is not directed at you csrnurse, more at nursing schools and their admissions process).
