This program is 90k now? Cost was the desirable thing about this program. This makes me feel better about staying local and choosing the program I did. I wonder how the DNP transition will affect the # of applicants. I guess it's still cheaper than Loma Linda.

I feel you Fentanyl, I also got rejected. I have a couple of coworkers who applied this cycle with me and they got interviews but I didn't. My resume/experience was better, so I don't know what they're looking for. I have more ICU experience, as well as pacu and bilingual in Spanish (I'm mexican, so I checked the minority box).

One of my ex coworkers from a smaller community hospital (MICU) got an interview. I believe I am more competitive than him/her. He/she has no CCRN. KPSA is weird. I am Egyptian. Rumor is that this program does not believe in diversity; not sure if you know what I mean.

Hi all,

I just wanted to put this out there because it was a bit disheartening to see all the anti-minority speculation. I'm of mixed ethnicity and I did indeed get an interview. Also, my mentor who graduated years ago is a minority, and she had nothing but wonderful things to say about KPSA and vice versa.

Please remember, you are more than just a check box on an ethnicity or a piece of paper with GPAs, certifications, and positions of employment. KPSA may look for something more than just those credentials. It's the bigger picture. They are looking for candidates that are a good fit for their program, just as we are looking for a program that is a good fit for us. We are ALL well-qualified, and there are dozens of programs out there that your "stats" may appeal to more than they do to KPSA. Just keep searching. KSPA is not the be-all end-all.

I got rejected from the first two nursing schools I applied to. AND I got rejected from the first CRNA school that I applied to. BUT everything worked out the way it was supposed to. Keep your heads up, don't give up and keep at it!

Funny that racism and anti-diversity is the first thing that comes to people's minds when something goes against them in Southern California of all places. The state where they give illegals benefits.

I'm 99.999% sure the fact that I did not get an interview has nothing to do with my race/ethnicity. I am just very curious as to why so I can strengthen my application for the following year. I wonder if I forgot something or my personal statement was not as good as others. In any event, I hope those of you who got interviews nail them and get accepted! Please do come back and share your interview experiences.

Hi! I have heard the interview is 3 parts; An individual interview with faculty, group interview, and a mock code test. Not sure if they are changing things around this year as the program has changed a bit.

I live in Echo Park :)

Has anyone with an interview applied to CSUF already? I can't find the appropriate DNP option? Anyone else having this problem?
