Just want to congratulate those who got accepted into the ELMA program! For those that did not get accepted, do not give up! We had several students that joined our cohort a couple weeks into our start that were originally waitlisted!
I was in the first cohort they piloted in 2016 so I guess you could call me a guinea pig of sorts. I was in the Women's Health track and I am now a practicing L&D RN at a high risk perinatal unit in the Bay Area.
If anyone has questions about the program, or anything at all, let me know, I would be happy to answer as best I can recall the details . Just remember it's going to be a heavy 2 years with classes/clinicals year round but lean on your classmates and peers, they will be a tremendous support system! The competition is over, team work will be your best asset during this time. I loved my cohort and of course there were days where we all wanted to just get up and leave but we lifted each other up and many of my classmates are now my lifelong friends. Enjoy this time..
