    NURSING SHOE HELP

    I actually love Birkenstock sandals which is why I thought it may be a good fit! I would normally just wear sneakers but my program requires that we wear nonslip black or white leather or any noncanvas/waterproof shoe with a back. The requirements make it a little harder to shop for comfort

    NURSING SHOE HELP

    hi everyone! in need of some desperate help and opinions finding good nursing shoes. I'm on my fourth week of nursing school and my current shoes aren't even getting me through my 3 hours labs. I bought Danskos because of the reviews and my right foot has never been in so much pain from minimal standing. Ive had multiple surgeries over my 1st MTP and talus and the danskos push right into those areas on me. does anybody have thoughts on Birkis by Birkenstock? wondering if they're worth the money or just go with crocs? any other suggestions?

    Admissions Interview

    a while back I applied to an accelerated 2nd degree nursing program. i ended up being waitlisted and assumed that meant I wasn't going to get in or at least it wasn't very likely. This week I heard back from the admissions office asking me to come in for an interview. I am really nervous because this is my top choice school and I would LOVE to go. does anybody have any suggestions? Does anybody actually get accepted from these interviews or hardly any? I really want to impress the committee, my interview is sometime next week and the program starts at the beginning of January.

    hopeful future nurse, advice needed!

    Here's the situation summary: I am a prospective ABSN student and I have heard that it's a terrible idea to have a job while in these programs (is this true?). my top choice school does not have on-campus housing and I am really unsure of whether or not i will be approved for a lease without having a job while at school. I know the tuition can be covered by loans, but how are people paying for rent/getting approved for leases without having a job while attending BSN programs? Any insights/experiences would be wonderful, I will love any/all advice!!!

    MCPHS Worcester, insights?

    from what i've heard, most of the issues are with the Boston campus rather than the Worcester. I don't personally know anybody that's been through the program but I know a few nurses in the area that speak highly of MCPHS in general, but again, not sure which program they were more familiar with

    Congrats!!! If you don't mind sharing, how long did it take to receive an admission decision after your application was marked as complete on your applicant portal?

    Good luck!! I just called the admissions office yesterday to check on the application status and they said they haven't started looking at the received apps for spring yet but will soon so you've got a little time

    Thank you for responding! I got your PM but the site won't let me respond, it says I need 15 quality posts before I can use the PM services. This is what I was going to message you: Thank you so much! I just applied today, so I think it will be a little bit before I get a response and I'm really anxious! But I was wondering if you could give me some general information, I'm sorry if it's a little lengthy. Do you know about how many people the program accepts each semester? How are the courses/clinicals are set up? I'm not sure how it all works in the accelerated program. I'm not from the area but I wanted to maybe do my clinicals at Elliot if that were an option if I did end up getting accepted, I have some friends that work there! Do you think that with how time consuming and hard the class work is that having a job while a student will work? I'm not sure how to pay for rent/food/parking/etc. without a job or if loans cover that stuff too. Did you have any problems with living in the Manchester? I want to live downtown so that I can walk to campus but am worried about the safety of the city, especially at night.

    @CiaMia, the site won't let me send you a PM since I'm new, I just applied to the Manchester campus and I had some questions for you if that would be ok!!

    MCPHS-Manchester Spring 2019

    I wanted to start a thread for students applying to or were already accepted to the Spring 2019 MCPHS Manchester ABSN program. I just submitted my application today and am a bit nervous! Is anybody else in the same boat or already accepted??
