    Hi, I am new to this thread. I am planning on applying for SMU-FNP track and was wondering if anyone who got accepted into program tell me what type of clinical experience they are looking for for the applicants?

    The most important thing, as with any school is to have a clear picture of how you see yourself as a future provider. Get clinical experience that is as hands on as you can find. If u have an area of interest that you'd like to pursue professionally, get experience there. I worked with a FNP at SF General, but other people had varying experiences. Most importantly(because we all did it) know that it's more impressive to them if u have a clear vision of what you hope to achieve in nursing than if you spend your energy trying to figure out what they want. It's a GIANT step into professionalism. Prepare yourself now. Good luck!
