    VA HPSP 2020 - Scholarship Award Updates?

    Just received notification that I was placed on alternate status. Anyone else hear back? I’m wondering if they are still making offers at this point or only considering for alternate status. But more waiting, I guess! Hope you guys get some positive news
  2. Hey guys, Just curious if anyone else here applied for the Veterans Affairs Health Professional Scholarship Program this year for PMHNP. I've been seeing lots of posts on other forums for different specialities (pharm, med, PA, BSN) but nothing from psych NP applicants. If anyone has heard back or is nervously awaiting as well, I'd love to connect. I'm feeling really hopeful about the opportunity and the silence is killing me! 😛

    Do you guys know whether out-of-state Nurse Aide certification meets the STNA requirement? It wasn't really clear to me in the video on the nursing website, and I'm not sure if I need to complete a course in Ohio before starting classes.
  4. Hey, thanks for making a class Facebook page! I'd like to join but actually don't know if I have an email address associated with my account. I think it's just my phone number? At least that's all I've ever used to sign in. Is there a way for me to just search for the group name?

    I'm not exactly sure what the final calculation was (I had grades from a few different schools), but my cumulative GPA was somewhere around a 3.2. I think having strong recent grades definitely helps. I also mentioned interest in research in my PS, and I believe your experience/publication will be viewed positively! If your undergrad GPA is below 3.0, I think having a strong GRE score would be important, but I don't know that would be necessary since your graduate GPA is so good. I'm sure the admissions coordinators would be able to provide useful feedback and advice on the different components of the application, and they're super nice!

    Thanks! I felt pretty uncertain about my chances of acceptance into PMHNP, but so happy and relieved it worked out. I think the greatest weakness of my application was my overall GPA being ~3.2, but my recent grades are all A's and prerequisite GPA is ~3.8. I'm currently in an accelerated Masters of Science program that bridges into a DO medical program, but I feel like the NP route is truly a better fit for my goals. I've been particularly interested in psych/mental health for several years and I believe my PS demonstrated that through my personal/volunteer/work experiences. I'm also a mother of two young boys, which came up in my PS and interview. So definitely a nontraditional applicant, but I get the feeling that the program values life experiences and really does take a holistic approach in their evaluation. If you demonstrate your potential for academic success along with a developed knowledge and passion for the field through your personal statement/LORs/etc, I think chances of acceptance are good. Best of luck!

    If you don't mind sharing, is your wife doing PMHNP also? What does she think about the program so far?

    I’m not certain it’s indicative of anything but checking my previous admissions-related emails from OSU, they were all sent between 8pm and early morning hours, so maybe that’s when things entered during the day actually get processed and posted.

    Just got a chance to check back on here again, and I'm surprised they're not up yet! When I talked to someone earlier, they said that the decisions were being released today and mine had just been updated (noting that was most likely what triggered the message under my student enrollment tab). She said it was immediately visible in their system but takes a little time to show up for us after the status changes. Mine still says pending as well though, so I guess the system just hasn't processed/updated the changes yet? I'm not sure, sorry guys! 😕

    Thanks! From what I’ve heard, I think maybe the system randomly updates status changes throughout the day, but I’m sure you’ll see something soon! Sending good vibes and prayers 🙂

    I honestly still feel in disbelief. Like it actually happened???

    Accepted to PMHNP!!! I got a weird enrollment message on the student portal that IT told me to call and ask about and they told me it was probably related to my updated “admit” status. It sounds like they’re working on updating and should probably be finished by the end of the day! Hoping for positive news for everyone!!
