I'm in a different program, but I know a nurse from the CSICU at Norfolk General and another in the ICU at VA Beach General who'll be joining you. Not sure if they're on this site though. Congrats on your acceptance!

Thank you :) Well if you run in to them, mention this post.

Specializes in ICU.

Hi! Congratulations on your acceptance! I'm looking forward to applying next year. Do you mind sharing Stats or tips for acceptance? How was the interview? Thanks in advance!

I'd suggest working in a busy ICU where you get experience with a diverse patient population. When you're at work, seek out the really sick patients and learn as much as you can on a day-to-day basis. As far as the interview, you never know what they will ask. Just think about everything you say before you say it and be prepared to elaborate on anything that you bring up. If you're still taking classes, be sure to keep your grades up. All the faculty, students, and applicants that I met that day were professional and easy to talk to. Take this time before applying to find a way to set yourself apart from other applicants. Good luck!

I'm interviewing for next year's class in a few weeks. Do any of you all have input about the interview process? Any feedback is appreciated!

I am applying for ODU May 2020 start and had submitted my application about two weeks ago. How long did it take for you all to hear back about receiving an interview? After you interviewed did you receive an answer pretty quickly? I have not experienced a rolling admission before so didn't know what timeline would look like! Congrats to everyone who is already in!

@CSIRN17 I just heard yesterday that I was granted an interview! So hopefully you'll hear back soon if you haven't already ?

Hi @Nursng_life, thank you! I was sleeping after night shift actually and they left a voicemail, when I called them back they coordinated the interview from there!
