  1. Hi everyone! I’ll try to make this short. I am heavily considering giving up an acceptance to Physician Assistant school to attain my ASN. I am in my mid 20s and graduated college in 2017 with a bachelors in Biology. I have been everywhere in terms of careers and can’t ever pick. I decided on PA because I wanted leadership, a nice salary and to make a difference. However, I am realizing that I want to be a young mom, and I’d ultimately only want to work 2-3 days a week as a PA. With 100k in debt and a steep learning curve as a new PA, this makes little sense for me. But for a while, I allowed the idea to remain in my head. Now, I am thinking that pursuing an ASN for $4k sounds amazing. I have worked as a CNA, however, and in a med surg unit, and honestly hated my job and the nurses’. It all seemed like we were slaves. So that part worries me. To add to my list, I would need to move for PA school. My husband and I recently bought our home and I am happy living here. At times I’m afraid of regretting my choice to give up PA because maybe one day I’ll entertain the idea of being a provider and I have the opportrunity now. However, family is most important to me. I want time to travel and spend with my husband and kids. Any advice ? Thoughts? Is nursing as bad as I saw it working in a hospital? I’d like to work .5 fte or something along there as a nurse. Thank you all.

    UCF Summer 2018 Second Degree BSN

    I got an email saying I didn't get the scholarship not too long ago. It also said we'd hear about the admission decision in the next week. What does that mean??! í ½í¸…

    UCF Summer 2018 Second Degree BSN

    I read about an open house event on last years thread and applicants reaching a "second round". Is this still the case for this year??

    I was accepted yesterday! That took forever, probably because there was a mix up with one of my documents. Anyone who's done this program have any insight on its quality/what it's like?? I wish it weren't so expensive.

    I'm really hoping it's today guys!! I work this weekend and an acceptance is my only motivation lol I'm so tired of waiting.
  6. Hey everybody! I'm currently applying to accelerated nursing programs and dreaming of my future as a nurse. Right now I work as a CNA in a hospital med surg floor and have seen the travails of being a nurse on such a floor. When I finish nursing school (1 year) I am hoping to work a decent schedule (no weekends or holidays). I'm perusing school nursing, I think it's something I'd enjoy as long as the pay is not too atrocious in FL. Does anyone have any experience as a FL school nurse and how I would go about getting a certification etc and any salary info is helpful. Thank you all!

    Hey guys! Just got the assessment email like 2 hours ago. I plan to take it soon but that will basically be a confirmation that everything was received. I saw that the email was copied to ~204 other people. I don't know if they did any screening to everybody they sent it to or what.

    Hey you guys haven't received that questionaire yet right?

    UF Accelerated BSN, Summer 2018

    Thanks! Yeah I was reading last year's forum and most people said that their application stayed on verified and only after decisions were out or something did it say completed.

    Oh Kenneth told me that the assessment isn't sent until after the deadline!

    Quick question guys. I submitted my app and I'm still taking prereqs (finishing 1 more class in Spring and finishing a few this semester) so my application on nursingCAS says verified not completed. I read that UF doesn't get the app unless it says completed but I feel like mine won't say completed until nursingCAS receives all my transcripts which can't happen until I finish my prereqs...but this will be after the deadline. There has to be some error in my thinking since UF allows applicants to take prereqs until the spring before matriculation. Just want to make sure I'm doing everything right. Thanks!

    Well it must be really expensive considering UM is 40k! I was hesistant to apply because of the price tag but I wanted to up my chances of getting in somewhere. I'm also applying to UF, UCF and UNF.

    Hey, I applied a few days ago! I keep reading on these forums that we get results back based on when we submit the application so I'm hoping it doesn't take too long. Where else are you applying?
