    Hey y'all! I applied to Duke's 2019 PNA program and just wanted to start this forum to meet any other applicants and anxiously wait through the decision process together!

    mine also says in review still! Whenever I called the placement office last week, she said, "It looks like y'all are supposed to find out the week of the 11th." So I'm REALLY hoping it means before the 15th, but also trying not to get my hopes up or else that week will drag along sooo slowly

    what did everyone end up listing for their units?! so curious to see all the different types of nursing this group might be interested in!

    MD Anderson PSNE 2019

    I haven't applied yet, but I definitely plan on it!! And hey, don't worry about it! If it makes you feel better, I have 0 paid work when it comes to patients. All of my work experience is retail and customer service. So just show them the best version of you and have confidence that they'll look past anything you would consider "less desirable".

    @bruhbsn I just called the placement office to ask. She said that the more information we provide, the better they can place us where we'd more like to be. So if you'd rather have your second sub-specialty in your second choice than your last sub-specialty in your first choice, then that would be a great thing to list in the additional comments section. But she did seem to think that ranking every single specialty might be better in terms of making placement easier for them. I also asked if she knew how the finalists were selected - GPA? essay? She said she wasn't sure, but she thinks that they really just look at them holistically. That they've already gone over things, and with the final 100, they just review our apps more in depth and pay even closer attention to everything. She was seriously so stoked about the final 100 (not sure if it's actually 100 people or not, but that's what everyone seems to call it). She said it's such a huge accomplishment and that she wishes us all the very best! I thought I'd pass that along because regardless of what happens, it truly is an honor to have gotten this far!!!

    not having any sort of time frame for knowing when we'll find out has been killing me, so hopefully they'll let us know soon!

    Mayo Nursing Externship Summer III 2019

    have y'all been trying to twist every possible scenario into a positive outcome? I know I have! I'm just thinking, "Well, if I don't get in (which is very likely), at least I'm showing interest prior to graduation and getting my foot somewhat in the door! Maybe that would look good for if I applied as a new grad here!" and literally every other way I can spin this positively haha!

    I've gone back and looked at previous forums for past years, and it at least appears like it happens in 2 waves. The first is to find out if they want extra information from you or not (transcripts, unit preferences, etc.). If not, then you're done. That seems to typically be around January 29th-February 2nd. If you do move on to the next phase, it looks like you find out around February 14-17th if you're hired or not. No clue if it will be the same this year or not, but that's how it seems to have been for the past little bit! So it shouldn't be too much longer!! hope this helps

    @INSPYR I applied too! I actually chose to write my essay about an experience I had helping a customer while working retail. I probably had some other options that would have "looked better" on paper, but my heart was just really, really in that story. I built off of nursing things I learned from it and the quality of nurse I want to be one day. So hopefully they'll see the real me in what I wrote! Good luck to you!!
