    That's a bummer. Thanks for the update.

    Medical City Feb 2020 New Grad

    Has anyone who did not attend the intern bash but applied online heard back for an interview? I know they said it would take a few weeks to contact everyone but I haven't heard anything yet and I'm starting to lose hope.

    Medical City Feb 2020 New Grad

    Nervously waiting to hear back. I unfortunately did not know about the intern bash so I didn't attend but applied online with preferences for pediatric CVICU or PICU at children's in Dallas. Hoping to hear something soon.

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    Hi everyone! I wanted to start a thread for anyone applying to Emory's DABSN program for this upcoming September. I figured it would be a good way to connect with potential classmates and update each other as we go through the application process. I submitted all application materials a few weeks ago and am waiting to hear back if I received an interview. Has anyone had their application reviewed yet?
  7. Hello everyone. The deadline just passed for DePaul's MENP program and was curious if anyone else applied? I submitted an application for the summer cohort recently and am now waiting to hear back. Also did anyone else take the GRE and care to share their scores? I would also love to hear from any former/current students in their program to share some recent experiences.

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    I didn't really. I was just prepared to express why I wanted to be a nurse/was interested in Emory but to be honest they didn't even ask me those questions. It was more going over what pre-reqs I had left to complete if any, and a chance to ask questions about the program. It was a very casual interview.

    Emory ABSN Fall 2018

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe they said within 100 miles or so of Atlanta. I know they said they don't want to place any student more than an hour away from where they live, as they don't want long commutes after long shifts, and they want to reserve Atlanta/surrounding clinical placements for their on campus programs. The best way to know for sure if you live too close for the DABSN would be to reach out to them via email. They always respond to questions within a few days, so they would be able to give you the most accurate information.

    PORTAGE - QUESTIONS

    I took four courses on Portage and you are correct. They only offer A, B, C, etc. They do not grade on a +/- system, so your 89 would be a B. Portage tests are not open book, unless they are lab exams in a course like chemistry. For those you are allowed to use notes.

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    Good luck to you on your TEAS! I submitted my application 3/1 and all transcripts were in by 3/17. I received an interview invitation on 4/19. I think the process may be a little quicker now that they are actively reviewing applications because when I first submitted they hadn't begun that process.

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    I'm not sure exactly of my GPA. I'm guessing it's somewhere right around a 3.2 or 3.3. I had around a 3.0 prior to my pre-reqs, but I received all A's in those. I already had my CNA certificate complete. I submitted my GRE scores: 155 V, 156 Q, 4.5 AW. I also feel I really expressed my career goals well/explained why I was interested in Emory in my personal statement.

    Congratulations to you too! Are you planning on attending or did you apply elsewhere?

    I just received my acceptance letter! So excited!

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    Nice! Sounds like we'll probably be classmates then! I'm currently living in the Chicago area, but will likely be moving to the Dallas, TX area before the clinical portion of the program begins. What about you?

    Emory D-ABSN Fall 2018

    I had my interview today as well. They said they would try and get notices of acceptance out ASAP, but made it seem like I didn't have to worry too much about getting in. The interview was more informative than anything for me.

    No one else out there applying? I'm still waiting to hear back and it would calm my nerves a little speaking to someone else going through this process!

    Duke ABSN Spring 2019

    Hello! I'm planning on applying although I'm waiting on acceptance for another program for fall 2018 and I'll do that if I get in. I graduated in June 2017 with a BA in economics. They had a webinar last night for the program and said they look at your overall GPA so I think mine is somewhere around a 3.1 but like you I have a 4.0 in pre-reqs. They said the process is pretty holistic so having professional experience might be helpful. I believe they also said you can email the SON admissions if you had something extra you wanted them to consider in your app.

    Portage Learning

    I've taken four classes through Portage: general psych, developmental psych, chemistry, and nutrition. I found the experience to be pretty good overall. The material is very clear and the tests are pretty straightforward. If I had anymore pre-reqs to complete I would definitely use portage again! The classes are also pretty cheap and you can complete them as fast as you like. The only limit is you cannot do more than one exam per day (labs for chem you can do more than one per day).

    Portage Learning

    @Jyoti the exams on Portage for psychology are a mix. Some questions are true/false, some are multiple choice, some fill in the blank, and some are short answer/essay. It's that way for both general psychology and developmental psychology.

    Emory ABSN Fall 2018

    @ NICUNurse I know your comment wasn't directed at me, but just as an fyi for anyone considering the distance program, at the last virtual info session they said they wouldn't accept anyone in the Distance program who currently lives in the Atlanta area. They said that's what the on campus ABSN/ABSN+MSN is for. They would consider others who live in Georgia but are outside of the metro Atlanta area, but anyone in the Atlanta area has to apply for an on campus program.

    I submitted my application about a week ago. Just waiting to hear back on if I got an interview/if they are able to find a clinical placement in my state.

    @Pepelala are you planning on applying to the DABSN?

    Texas Tech Accelerated 2nd Degree BSN 2019

    I'm planning on applying to the Dallas location. I'm still so unsure if some of my courses will count to the pre-req requirements as I got my first degree in Illinois so I'm missing a lot of the core curriculum courses. I plan on taking US gov/TX gov and that should give me enough hours to apply. Taking the TEAS in May after I finish A&PII. Also does the medical terminology course have to be done at the time of application, or can it just be done prior to enrolling? I've taken four history courses (two part of religious history in US, and two part of economic history in US), so I'm hoping they count those towards US history so I don't have to take history again.

    Pre-ABSN Student, worried I may not be en route

    Depending on how the programs you are considering evaluate candidates, you might not be as far down as you think. Many ABSN programs (not all) consider candidates holistically not just based on their undergraduate GPA. Some also tend to focus more on the pre-req GPA or the GPA of your last 60 units versus our overall GPA. My undergraduate GPA by itself isn't great, as it's just under a 3.0. However, I've been making all A's in my pre-reqs so far and I've gotten into two ABSN programs and 1 masters program. I would honestly make a spreadsheet of all the schools you are interested in, their requirements, application deadlines, etc. so you have one centralized location for your information. That was you can easily compare the differing pre-reqs needed and figure out which ones you still need to finish before you apply. Many schools, though again not all, will let you apply if you only have a few pre-reqs in progress. This would allow you to apply to some other schools you might be interested, but not to have to complete every single pre-reqs before you apply. As far as your question about calculus versus algebra, I personally haven't had an issue with my calc classes satisfying any algebra requirements, but to be sure you should reach out to the individual programs and see if they will accept it.
