Hi! Anyone applying for priority admission for Sp19?

I just completed mine. You??

I am in the process of completing mine and getting nervous (and excited)!

I'm out of state with not much nursing experience so not sure what to expect.

I applied for the priority. Everything is submitted. Has anyone heard when we might find out if we are accepted or not?

We'll find out by September 15th if we got accepted into the priority pool. If you don't hear back by then it just means that you are being considered in the regular applicant pool and should hear back with the rest of the applicants.

The wait is killing me!

I'm currently in the MUSC absn program if you have any questions!

I want to know everything. Lol What is the work load like? Is it comparable to a working a 40 hour week?

Same!! Would love to know about your experience/ what your credentials were to get in :)

Me me me....

1. What is proper dress code for

Lecture classes?

2. Do we have to wear a particular brand of white scrubs?

3. Do you have a job? Is working a possibility or is it just too much? I mean 10-15 hours a week and not like 40....

clarification

Sorry I actually meant September 30th not 15th!!

I'll answer any questions you have, from my perspective of course. I wouldn't say its comparable to a 40 hr work week id say maybe 24-32hr. but remember a lot of the program is online so that doesn't include studying and completeting online work. Everyones schedule is slightly different, just fo a feel of schedule My schedule right now is Monday, I'm in lecture 8-4. Off Tuesdays, Labs on Wednesday (4hrs), Clinical on Thursdays (6am-2p) and Off Fridays. So in total I'm actually at school for about 20hrs a week. However, there is a good amount of online work, about 4-6hrs a week. I study for anywhere between 4-8hrs a week. It does definietly start to add up. First Semester you take 6 classes (Foundations, Health Assessesment, Patho-pharmacology (online), Professional Nursing and two IP classes [which are pretty much online they meet about 4 times each a semester, the IP classes just focus on teamwork in the health care profession so it's a relatively easy class.

Sorry if that was alot of information, just trying to give you an outline of what the program is like at least for first semester.

I personally love my experience thus far at MUSC, one thing I feel like its crucial to comment about is how authentic and caring the faculty, staff and professors are. They are incredibly approachable and truly want your success. They do everything in their power to help you succedd. I am one of the few in my class that doesn't have a bachelors degree, I just took the prerequesites needed, maintained a high GPA, and spent a lot of time volunteering.
