    Nevermind! I called them and that's it.

    This is kind of a silly question, but on the contract signature page, it didn't seem like there was a way to actually sign the contract beyond entering your SSN, security question answer, and application password at the bottom, right? And then when you get to the final page, the contract is blank where there would be a signature... Is that everyone else's experience?

    @Staceym30 Have the loans been disbursed to you or your school yet? If not, don't cancel them yet until it's for sure, but you should be able to cancel them with no problem. Sallie Mae, for example, allows you to cancel and return your loan money with no penalty or interest for up to 90 days or something. Please don't quote me on it, but that is what I was told by the financial aid office at my school. Congratulations!

    I'm a finalist, too! 😄

    HRSA Nurse Corps Scholarship 2020-2021

    @PublicHealthNurse96 My background is mostly social justice/environmental activism and some humanitarian aid work. I have good grades and my EFC is zero. My only concern is that one of my recommenders didn't put a signature (electronic or handwritten) on her letter for me--she just typed her name. She shared the letter with me after the application closed and I'm terrified that my application will get rejected because of this tiny error... If so, I just want to know before I start classes! 😩 But, oh well, we can't control everything in this crazy world... I'm going to just try to forget about it and, in the meantime, apply for other scholarships. I hope you get it! Best of luck in your program. 🙂

    I'm also an ABSN applicant. Crossing my fingers very tight as this scholarship for me means the difference between attending or not, more or less. I know two people who have gotten the scholarship and two who did not. Of the two who got it, one was an ABSN student, and one is a regular BSN student. Of the two who didn't get it, one had an EFC above the tier 1 threshold and the other was a diploma program student (she thinks that is why she didn't get it). Anyway... good luck to all!
  8. Hello! I wanted to start this thread so that applicants can update each other on application status, etc. Likely we'll have no news for several months. Good luck to everyone!

    Hospice as first RN job?

    Hello! I am set to start nursing school next fall. My current specialty interest lies in hospice/palliative care. I have a little experience in a LTC facility for my CNA clinical. I am curious whether it is ever possible to be hired into hospice as a new nurse? Is hospice a rare interest for new nurses?

    Duke ABSN Fall 2020

    @lovelynurse1093 Can you post a link to the fb group? Also, has everyone else started to gather their immunization records? If you can’t find proof of certain immunizations, you’ll have to start the series again, so best get on it! I was told that even if all the required series aren’t completed, you can still go forward under “partial compliance.” Fair warning that it will be hard to get into a doc’s office if you don’t already have a PCP but Minute Clinics and urgent care centers do titers and immunizations.

    @britbrat0105 If you have a cheaper option that will still provide a good education (and a BSN), it’s probably a good idea to take it!

    Duke ABSN Fall 2020

    Duke Days canceled. An email was sent out today. Instead they'll be doing "Virtual Duke Days."

    Duke ABSN Fall 2020

    I got my financial aid package today! I feel like it will be helpful for future applicants so I will divulge my info. My FAFSA EFC was 0. I got a $22,500 need-based scholarship. It looks like they only provide the package for the 2020-2021 academic year, so fall 2021 is not included. I am eligible for $12,500 in federal loans. The rest I would have to make up in private loans! So we'll see how I fare in my other scholarship applications. I'm interested to see what kinds of need-based aid others receive, if you're willing to share.

    Duke ABSN Fall 2020

    There are two cases in the area now, and I guess one of the folks went out to a restaurant in Raleigh recently. *massive eyeroll* So we'll see how that goes. My hope is that everyone takes responsible precautions against both mass infection and mass paranoia... @OctaviaF I know some airlines are offering free changes for travel booked during this time--maybe look into it? Airbnb might as well. Also, I wanted to offer a couch for anyone who is coming to town for Duke Days and can't afford a place to stay, especially (but not exclusively) LGBTQ/BIPOC folks. (I'm white 'n queer.) I live in Hillsborough, which is a ~20min drive to Duke. I'm going March 20. I still need to check in with my housemates, but get in touch if you're interested. I live with one dog and the house is very clean. 🙂

    I didn't get anything yet! Checked the financial aid portal and my email. Hmm!

    I got in, too! @jackattack 99 I think the folks on the waitlist have a good chance of getting in. Definitely don’t lose hope!
