Hi everyone, I applied for the MSN program for FPMHNP (traditional entry). Has anyone heard back about an interview yet?

Yes, by now you probably have too. I heard last weekend. Set up for an interview next week.

My interview's next week as well. What specialty did you apply for, birdie85?

Congrats and good luck to you too! I've already gotten into another program and this one is significantly more expensive, so we will see. I really like the strong psychotherapy focus though.

The interview was ok, but somewhat strange feeling. Four people interviewed me and they weren't too responsive or warm. I have heard this before, though, so maybe it's just their style. They asked me to fill out a self assessment of some skills that are pretty clearly nursing-related. Then they asked me to reflect on the skills, and on the process of doing the assessment. I wasn't really sure what to say and kind of bumbled through. You might give this some thought.

Thanks for the tip, but I already had my interview as well and a very similar experience with the reflection questions. I asked about when we would hear back and they said three weeks. That's nice at least!

Just heard back from UCSF. Yale is next week. Did you apply to either of those too?

Applied to Yale, UT-Austin, and planning to submit to BC as well. I'm an RN applicant so it's a slightly different timeline for Yale- haven't had an interview yet. I'm in at UT-Austin so far. What's your top choice? I really like OHSU for its curriculum, climate and proximity to family.

I'm an RN applicant, not accelerated BSN-MSN. I am in for psych specialty.
