    USF BS-DNP Fall Program 2019

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any insight on this program or advice regarding admissions. I'm a recent graduate from UF's accelerated BSN program and am interested in applying to USF's Oncology concentration DNP. I have a strong, graduate level background in molecular biology and I would have at least 1 year of oncology experience before matriculating. I did previously attend USF for my degrees prior to making my career change to nursing, so I know a lot about the school but not too much about their nursing programs. I think what I am nervous about is applying to a DNP program too early despite being urged to apply ASAP. I've had a few friends jump right into DNP programs with no problems, but I'm wondering if that makes it harder to get in. Thanks!

    Hi all!!! I finally got a chance to post and just wanted to say CONGRATS to each of you who made it in!! It's been a pleasure answering some of your questions throughout this process and I am so very excited to continue to work with each of you within in the coming months. Please continue messaging me privately if you need anything or feel free to add me on Facebook! For those of you who didn't make it, please do not give up! Nursing is competitive but do not let that deter you if this is the career path you 100% want! I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors! -Jess

    Current students will very likely not be disclosed this info. Jacksonville was planning on having an admin send the link via email on our behalf.

    Jluv81 described it well! I would def recommend googling the syllabi! It may help you guys get an idea of what to expect. But do remember your curriculum will vary slightly from ours so these things could change, of course. Good luck to everyone! Try not to be too glued to your computers/phones waiting for emails (ha!)

    Orientation will be in May (usually the week before classes, so the 8-9 seem logical). If you get into Jacksonville, you will have a half day orientation in Gainesville and then the next day will be a full one in Jacksonville. I believe classes will start on May 13th!

    For the accelerated programs, there is only one start date!

    Hey all! I know someone mentioned somewhere about starting a Facebook group once you find out who is admitted... I just wanted to give you a heads up that for those of you who get admitted to Jacksonville that you will already have a Facebook page made for you by us mentors. So for those of you who get admitted to the Jacksonville campus, you will receive the link to that page via an email within the few weeks following decisions/acceptation of your offer. Also I would HIGHLY recommend if you do not have Facebook to make one! Emails tend to get overwhelming, lost or not even sent sometimes in Jacksonville, so having a Facebook helps you stay up to speed on info/ ask questions to your fellow cohort (plus is a great way to connect prior to orientation!) I know decisions may be coming out this week, so I wish each of you the best of luck! Go gators!

    Same with Jax, unfortunately. First semester we didn't lose anyone due to patho but instead because of health assessment. Second semester was a combo of pharm and SOC 2. We started with 40 in our cohort and lost 6 total (3 in first and 3 in second semester). We did end up having 2 students from the previous cohort matriculate into ours (however one quit the program due to personal reasons). Thus we currently have 35 students.

    For me personally (in Jax)... 1.) I loved Genetics online but I am bias because that's what my background is in. I think the new cohort will not have this class due to the altered curriculum. I actually really liked Patho and pharmacology in terms of content. Both are very hard classes but they will be a combined course for the new cohort. I personally liked the science components to these classes but you will also learn how these all apply to being a great nurse! 2.) Health assessment for me was hard. The material isn't the issue but our exams were very difficult and you really get a taste of "nursing/ NCLEX- style questions in this course. This was the class that people who did not make it past first semester failed (in our cohort no one failed Patho actually). I also think SOC 2 was pretty difficult as well but second semester is just harder in general because of the load you have between classes and clinicals. Do remember that everyone has their strengths/weaknesses as well as different learning styles. There are also differences in exams/professors between GNVL and JAX for some of the courses and cohorts prior to even ours. So you may hear different things depending on who you ask.

    Hi all! If you're new to this forum and missed some of my earlier replies I am a current JAX student! There was about 40 of us admitted to JAX this past cohort

    Hi all! Just checking in and wanted to wish you all the best of luck (my fingers are crossed for each of you)! As someone mentioned, last year, I received my acceptance email in the late afternoon on February 23rd. I know the waiting game is super stressful but just try to hang tight for a little while! In the meantime, if you have any questions (especially if they're specific to the Jacksonville campus) feel free to message me individually!

    Hi there! Most of your clinicals will be done at the main hospital which is downtown. But you could still get rotations in other areas such as orange park. A lot of the current students live downtown in Riverside or the San Marco area. As someone mentioned, the main hospital is in a pretty bad area, so definitely try to find somewhere that you personally feel safe (which it seems like Riverside and San Marco are the better areas, closest to the hospital). I personally live over near the town center and some also live in southside. These are both slightly farther away but I definitely feel safer over here... plus it's closer to destressing activities, like the beach! :-)

    Hi all! We are on break right now and was curious to see if any new applicants were posting on this website. I am a current student at the Jacksonville campus and I would be more than happy to offer any advice, etc. My biggest advice right now is to stay confident. UF takes a holistic approach to the process so play up your backgrounds and experiences. When the essays are available for completion, don't rush completing them... take your time and always try to relate your answers back to the field of nursing. Good luck everyone! All of us are rooting for you!

    Same here. I think I may email Kenneth. I never got confirmation for my undergrad application either (the only way I knew they got it was because they cashed my check). I think confirmations should be sent soon, the app has been closed 2 weeks now.
