    Hi Galway2003 - Congratulations on getting an interview! I will keep my fingers crossed for you I was just notified that they would like me to come in for an interview as well. Would you mind sharing with me any details regarding your interview in terms of the format, length and what type of questions they asked? Did they give any hints regarding how many people they have already accepted or when you could expect to hear back? Thank you!!!

    Galway2003 and brez1208, congratulations on the interview. I hope you get positive responses! When did you send in your application?

    I'm still waiting to hear back from them...no interview offer yet. My applicaton was sent mid ocober. I really hope to hear something soon as the wait is nerve racking. Those with interview offers....how was your TEAS scores? I made the mistake of taking the test a day after receiving the email from the nursing department about taking the teas at wcu. I scored 78%. Althought it was good eneough to get an application, I know I could do a lot better if I had planned for it. if they are offering interviews and acceptances based on teas scores.....then I'm out of luck. otherwise my science GPA is quite strong.

    all the best to everyone. please post your updates/interviews/acceptances so we celebrate with you.

    Group interviews? that is interesting...but given the number of possible applicats, I guess that is the only way around it. I hope people were not tripping over trying to 'outshine' their competitors
    Did they by any chance mention when you should expect a decision by and if the class was just begining to fill or almost full?

    brez1208 were you able to get interview information you were looking for? when is your interview? If you'd had the interview could you provide details?

    I had my interview last week. They were very friendly and the questions were in line with what you would expect in any nursing school interview (why do you want to be a nurse, etc). The interview was in a group setting - initially I didn't know what to expect but all of the interviewees were very considerate and respectful of one another. They said the cohort is not full yet and that we should hear back by Dec 15th. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone else!!!

    Congratulations on getting an interview! I heard back earlier this week (by email) and I was accepted!!! I received my formal acceptance letter in the mail yesterday! It seems as though they are letting people know soon after the interviews. I think this is especially true now because they want us to have time to register for NSG310 (Human Response to Disease) if we choose to take it in the spring before the program actually starts. Good luck to everyone else!!! Keep us posted!

    Thank you all for congratulating me on the interview opportunity. I just went for the interview (one huddle down!). It was really relaxed just as you mentioned. Really hoping an acceptance letter follows shortly. For those still waiting for an interview, do not despair; the class is not full. They plan to suspend interviews as the university officially breaks for the winter session this week. They will resume in January.

    CONGRATULATIONS to brez1208 . I'm really happy for you on your acceptance. I think this is the first acceptance reported on this forum so far.

    Looks like we are missing a few post on this thread. Did they get lost during allnurses site update?

    Hello brez1208,what is the acceptance package like?Ihave been waiting for a month now,after i got the acceptance e-mail and nothing yet.I cant wait to start the NSG310.I hope its "fun".

    Hi chemistr1 - I received my formal acceptance letter two days after I got the email acceptance. The letter has no information about the program, but does note that a deposit of $200 is required to hold your spot. My deposit was due about a week and a half after I received the letter. Based on the email, it sounds like we will receive a contract and more specific information about the program sometime during the spring semester. Also included in the formal acceptance package is a document on tuition and financial aid, but this is just general information that can be found online, not specific to our program. Hope this helps! Look forward to meeting you soon!
