Hello Everyone!

I am a starting a new thread for those applying  for the Grad entry program at OSU this October for 200 entry. I am a super excited yet super nervous, I know the waiting process is tedious. I haven't applied yet, currently finishing up two pre-req courses. I am a Respiratory Therapist pursuing the FNP tract. Super excited for everyone.

@resptoFnpplease I am super excited!!! And I plan to apply to the Pscyh Np tract! I am actually finishing up my anatomy now, and plan to take physiology in the summer and Microbiology the fall semester. Where did you take physiology, and omg how was it!? Was it super hard? Yes, I know that time is going to be here so fast, its crazy!!!

What's your background if you don't mind me asking?

@YonniB

awesome ! I am currently in A&P II and microbiology this summer semester and that will be my las pre reqs before applying. I wouldn’t say they are hard they are just tedious. I am taking my pre reqs currently at COTC. My background is I am a respiratory therapist I have been working in the healthcare field since 2015(patient transport, pca, and respiratory therapist) . What is your background ?

@resptoFnpplease Oh wow! Props to you!!!! I am currently taking physiology this summer! I am not sure if I am going to be able to apply since I need one more pre-reqs which would be microbiology! Ugh! I just thought I would be able to apply and get  conditional acceptance if I passed. I am not sure right now! My background is I am a psychiatric social worker and have been for about a 1 year, but I have been dealing with people with developmental disabilities and mental illness since 2015 as well! 🙂

What did you get in your pre-reqs so far? If you don't mind me asking? 🙂

Thanks girl!! And oh no I thought you were taking micro this semester too yes they unfortunately want all pre reqs completed before applying. There are other programs that allow you to come on conditional but I don’t think OSU is one of them but I wouldn’t least call and double check before you get your hopes down ! 

But that’s awesome you have a background in social work !! Great direction to go the psych np route!! 

As far as they’re pre reqs i am currently in A&P 2 andmicro . I have had As in there reqs so far . I think you have to pass them with atleasta B

No Problem girl!!! and yes I was, and I was scheduled too, but it was just a lot and I wasn't sure if I would be able to handle it with my work load and everything else, but I wanted to see if they had another summer session for Microbiology hopefully! But I am not sure! Ill definitely ask and call to double check, hopefully they changed it or something! Lol

Thanks girl!!! I absolutely love psych !

Thanks awesome! I was so close to an An in anatomy and ended up getting an 89% = B in anatomy so I was so devastated  and thought it would make me less competitive  ! :(

@buckeyekh Omg yesssss! Thank you so much for responding to this forum. How do you like the program so far?

Are the courses super difficult or manageable?

How was the interview process? I heard there are two interviews

What was your background/Pre-Quitistes grades when you applied (If you don't mind me asking) ? 🙂

Hello @buckeyekh,

Welcome ! That is awesome you are already in the program I am torn between midwifery and just FNP. I am curious to see how your workload was for the first year ? did you work? I have a 7 month old and I know its going to be tough but I am willing to fight for it. Why are you switching specialties if I can ask? How long did you have to wait for decisions last year? Sorry so many questions just so many grey areas.
