    Columbia SON MDE 2019

    I did the same, girl. What I dislike about the program is that Columbia is the only program that charges two year’s worth of tuition in one year of time. The way they count credit hours per semester i.e. 20+ seems rigged. I am in Hopkins nursing program and the first semester we have 17 credit hours including clinicals and that’s a full 5-day weekday schedule. So how could Columbia’s program add even more to make it 22 or 21 credits a semester? It’s definitely overpriced but of course, it’s a name-brand school and they probably are not worried about a shortage of applicants/enrollments.

    And no time to eat or sleep too. That's the price for stuff 74 credits in a one year program instead of two.
  3. Hi, I'm curious where did you get the stats?

    It’s not that competitive actually. They accepted 200 applicants this year. My bachelor’s is not health-science related and have no health care experience at all.

    Master's Entry vs. Accelerated Bachelor's

    That’s a good point! Thanks!

    Actually, the Columbia program is an accelerated MSN. They mentioned it on their webpage http://www.nursing.columbia.edu/academics/academic-programs/masters-direct-entry-mde. It’s different from most of the other master’s entry into nursing programs in that one has to complete 71 credits of graduate school work within 14 months, where as the program at Johns Hopkins is as long as 2 years. One of the downsides is that you have to pay two years worth of tuition in one year ($112k+ in tuition).

    Well, the nclex passing rate for Columbia is 88%. Does that mean it’s a not a legitimate program then?

    There’s a rule of thumb I read from an expert: don’t borrow more than half of your first year’s salary.

    Can you please write the answer in the forum? I’m sure most of other students would like to know your answers to the questions too. Thanks!

    I agree! I don’t see a significance reason for one to choose to do a MSN instead of an ABSN for just entry into Nursing and getting the liscence. I feel the career prospect between the two right after graduation is pretty much the same for a new grad. Most places wouldn’t want to pay more even with a MSN because the lack of experience as a new grad. They may get considered first but we should ask ourselves if it’s worth the financial pressure in a city that’s already the most expensive. Also, I feel the fact they mentioned during the webinar last week that they accepted 200 students for the new MDE cohort is overwhelming. It makes me wonder if they are just trying to make more money instead of picking the best students.

    it's possible. they look at applications holistically, so grades are just part of the evaluation.

    I also wonder how much need-based scholarship we’d receive for the final summer semester of the MDE program
