    hey everyone- i will also be starting in May.

    NiCLuvsU2- I tried sending you a PM, but apparently I have not been active enough on this site to enable that setting. It also looks like I can't post emails or names on this site, so I'm not sure how else to be included in the FB group. Open to suggestions.

    Thanks for the replies. I just hate the idea of graduating with almost $200k worth of loans.

    Also on the alternate list. Anyone who was accepted not planning on attending?

    hey everyone- I'm in the process of interviewing for crna school. I've worked as a staff icu nurse for the past 3 years and I've been able to save up a decent amount of money, but I'm sure i'll need to take out a hefty amount to get me through 3 years. I'm not married and no other source of income.

    I just wanted to know how much money others have saved up in preparation for crna school, or how much money you think is adequate? I know it largely depends on location, but am still curious about the amount.

    thanks!

    Yeah- just found out it's only students at UNC-CH who are able to pick up their letters. All other decision letters will be/have been mailed.

    was this a generic email that was sent to all applicants? I didn't get the email, so I'm wondering if not all decisions are ready at this time...

    Decision letters will be going out this week.

    Right. It should be easier to get in, assuming they don't give the ABSN applicants the option of transferring to the BSN option.

    Hi makunc-

    Technically anyone who applies for the ABSN option can also be considered for the BSN option, but not everyone who applies to the BSN option could be considered for the ABSN option, since there would be some individuals who don't already have a BA or BS. A friend asked if ABSN applicants could transfer to be considered as BSN applicants now. She did not get a definitive "no," so that is why I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything about this.

    I heard about the 96 spots being available from the same friend who also applied to the BSN option. The SON has a weekly online chat. Before (for the BSN program), they would accept about 70 students in the Summer, and about 60 students in the Spring (total of ~130). Now, since they will only be accepting BSN students once a year, they are planning to accept 96 at one time. There is a similar plan for the ABSN students who will be applying for Spring.

    Hi everyone,

    I also applied to the BSN program at UNC for the summer. I'm still a bit confused as to how these new changes will actually affect those who applied to the program. Their plan is to accept 96 students to the BSN program for the summer. This is up from about 70 students who were previously expected to matriculate. So at first, it seems like those who applied to the BSN program would have a better chance of getting in this time around. The only thing is I'm wondering whether they will allow any applicants who submitted an ABSN application to now be considered for the BSN track? I tried getting a response for this question, but the person I spoke with did not have a good answer for me. If that's the case, then I would imagine that a good number of the ABSN applicants would take up this offer. I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything relating to this?
