    I applied for the BSN-DNP Psych NP program for Spring 2013. I'm eagerly awaiting a decision letter as well. It's torture having to wait. I hope that they send out letters according to their planned timeline. =)

    Thanks for replying! I couldn't find any other threads with students who applied for Spring 2013, so I'm glad to finally talk with someone else who has! The website said Sept. 27 decision letters will be sent, but the e-mail I got said letters will be mailed early October. So here's to hoping they come in the mail next week! Good luck! Let me know if you hear or get get anything in the mail! It would be great if someone who is in the program this year can give us some feedback on the program...

    Has anyone heard what they like for GPA requirements? ....I only have a 3.44, so naturally I'm a little worried

    I spoke with an admissions counselor and was told above a 3.0. She said that the school admitted someone with a 2.7 overall gpa because he had a 3.7 nursing gpa. I only have a 3.39 but my nursing is a 3.93 from an ABSN program (had a 3.1 gpa BS in computer science). I'm worried as well because the counselor said they don't always factor in the overall gpa. I'm keeping my fingers crossed at this point.

    I was a little disappointed when I received the email about the delayed decision letters.

    I'm sure you'll have no problem with a nursing 3.93 gpa!! I was also disappointed about the delay in decision letters. I hope they send another email when they send them out so we have a heads up.

    Hey y'all. Don't worry. They were still orienting the last of the groups for this year's clinicals in September, so don't think it means bad news. Sometimes they just bite off more than they can chew and things get delayed. It's a good school and you will be glad when you are in it. I did my undergrad there and now I'm halfway through my BSN-DNP (AGNP with Palliative Care and Nursing Ed.)

    I am too applied to their program FNP. I haven't heard anything back yet. My overall GPA is 3.0 but nursing was 3.5 so I am not sure what exactly will they factor in. I hope they only look at nursing GPA not the overall.

    I called them yesterday and the secretary said they are expecting to mail out letters this week. We'll all get a letter (not email) for either acceptance or denial.....
