    Linfield ABSN Summer 2021

    Congrats!! I knew that you would get in! I got waitlisted for Linfield, which is obviously fine for me. I already told them to take me off the waitlist. You are going to make a great nurse! Good luck with everything!
  2. I have a degree in human physiology and years of experience in the medical field in the form of scribing and volunteer work. I chose to start a one year medical assistant program while I was applying to nursing school so I would not have a gap in my resume and I would also have backup if I did not get into nursing school. Fortunately, I got into OHSU and will be starting in Jan! I am a little conflicted right now because I am halfway through my medical assistant program and on the one hand I know that it would be helpful with my nursing degree. However, I am paying out of pocket for this program and it is going to cost me about another 4k to complete the program. I don't know if the experience that I am going to get from completing the MA program is really worth the money that I will have to spend. Any advice would be helpful!

    OHSU ABSN 2021

    I made a LinkedIn group. I don't know if anyone is interested. It is for the Winter 2022 Cohort for Portland. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13961525

    I don't use facebook, is there anyway to connect on LinkedIn? That would be really cool!

    OHSU ABSN 2021

    I wonder if they are involved with coordinating covid vaccines in the area down there? I assumed that is why Portland is not having virtual interviews. With all of the vaccine clinics, my thoughts were that they didn't have time for the interviews so the papers made more sense? I don't know though. I wonder if Ashland's committee was more overwhelmed with the covid response and I would not be surprised if OHSU was pushing for more nurses to be accepted into each cohort since nurse burnout in the last year has been such a big issue. Just my speculatuons!

    OHSU ABSN 2021

    2-3 weeks, I believe. It took me so many days to write those essays. I think I wrote and then re-wrote each one at least three times each. I wonder how many people actually got help from others. It is not like there is anything really stopping them. That is kind of why I liked the interviews better. With the interviews, you know that everyone is genuinely answering the questions. Oh well.

    Seattle University APNI 2019 Applicant Questions?

    What kinds of work experience do you guys have that you are including in your applications? I am just curious. Currently, I am working as a medical scribe in a family practice clinic.

    I don't know about you guys, but I am getting a little frustrated with the lack of communication and conflicting information. It would be nice to know what is actually going on with the interviews.

    I am wondering if the snow storm has delayed them a bit. I would imagine that they don't have a clear idea of when the next interviews can be held and they probably had to reschedule quite a few interviews this week.

    I haven't heard back and I applied FNP as well. I am glad that I am not the only one.

    GRE study tips

    I would say that you should attempt a couple practice exams online, it may cost a little bit of money, but should be worth it. That should tell you where you need to be studying or if you need to study at all. I have never taken the GRE, but I have been told that studying the question structures and how to solve a question on the GRE is as important, if not more important than memorization of the vocab and math equations. So it may be more be more beneficial to focus of question structure than the actual material. To summarize, I think you should take some practice quizzes to see where you are at and then create your study plan from there. It could be that you don't need to study much because you ace your practice tests. Good Luck!

    I haven't heard back, but I called last week and they said that they will be sending out emails in the first two weeks of February. It seems like people from midwifery are hearing back though. I am getting so anxious, though! I just really want to know either way.

    Nurse Practitionor School Personal Statement

    I think that you have some really good ideas and sentences in your personal statement, but I think it could also use some work. Your second sentence is borderline a run-on sentence due to your excessive use of "and." I think that you could also elaborate on how you hugging and interacting with people at church is related to your passion to care for others. I understand the idea, but I think that it is a little disconnected in conjunction with the third sentence. It is also a good idea to refrain from beginning a sentence with "but." You may want to begin it with "however" instead. In this sentence, "...about the opportunity to earn by CNA license..." you used "by" instead of "my." Overall, I think you did a good job, but you may want to make a few adjustments to make this essay really good. Just mind your syntax, grammar, choice of vocabulary, and minimize the length of some of your sentences. Good luck!
