    Hello ! Welcome to the forum. I share the same interest in the CNM specialty, and appreciate you sharing your story. I am glad you are still choosing to apply, there are a lot more factors that can be evaluated beyond just gpa ( strong personal statement, background, video interview). Right now we are all just sitting waiting for decision this has been the longest wait ever! I recently emailed the nursing department and was informed the projected release is still on schedule for late February. I wish you the best as you apply for next years cohort. Again welcome to the forum !

    Hello @cbree14!! I have submitted my application about a month ago . Everything as of now is completed. As far as when the interview was completed I didn’t specifically have a time frame after I submitted my application. They do stress that your reference feedback is provided/ completed by the deadline as well as the video interview or your application isn’t considered completed. I have completed the video interview I stressed so much about it, and overanalyzed my answers after, but I feel I did my best. After the interview i said to myself I’ll try and just forget about the app until February (yeah right) 😫 . Hope all is well with you wrapping up your app and interview. Im sure you’ll do great . Good Luck to Everyone !!

    Hey Mary, Welcome to the thread. I also have already submitted my application and have wished I knew there was a help session as well. 😞 My GPA is also not the greatest but I made sure to work hard on leaving an impact with my personal statement. In the info session there was a heavy emphasis on your personal statement. I am also curious about how competitive the programs may be. I am trying to put this application in the back of my mind hoping I will blink and February will be here. Seems like such a long wait !

    Hello @cbree14 I have noticed there hasn’t been as much activity on this thread as well. Especially being so close to the application opening ! Not sure ! But yes Thursday !! I can’t believe we are here. I remember researching this program a few years back, and considering applying and now it’s happening ! I am excited , nervous , anxious , and not looking forward to the long tedious wait for decisions but ready. I work at a hospital in Columbus. I have had the opportunity to shadow FNP, CNM, as well as WHNP within previous work experiences. I agree this is the best way to absolutely be 100% sure you are dedicating to the right specialty. I made my decision based off of these experiences. I am eager to hear from more of you pursuing this grad entry program! Good Luck to everyone. Hope this thread gets a little more lively as we approach the application period. 🙂

    Oh no !!! I'm so sorry girl this is a bummer I know they ended changing requirements last year or the year before they must have changed it to you need to have all pre reqs completed prior to application. I'm sorry :( is there another program you can apply to ?

    Omg you are amazing that was amazing insight I truly appreciate you ! That awesome you got a decision by December I have been reading in the past forums those haven't received a decision until late February -_-. That's great to hear those with families and full time jobs were able to make due, even with having a child. That's amazing ! Do you work as a nurse anywhere ? have you sat for your NCLEX yet? I have heard the essay is what counts that's why those with lower gpas have been accepted. I could have a million questions but I wont bombard you lol. Your currently in Neonatal ? why is It 5 years if that's ok to ask? I hold interest in CNM but I notice there is a better job market for FNP so I am torn.

    Hello @buckeyekh, Welcome ! That is awesome you are already in the program I am torn between midwifery and just FNP. I am curious to see how your workload was for the first year ? did you work? I have a 7 month old and I know its going to be tough but I am willing to fight for it. Why are you switching specialties if I can ask? How long did you have to wait for decisions last year? Sorry so many questions just so many grey areas.

    Thanks girl!! And oh no I thought you were taking micro this semester too yes they unfortunately want all pre reqs completed before applying. There are other programs that allow you to come on conditional but I don’t think OSU is one of them but I wouldn’t least call and double check before you get your hopes down ! But that’s awesome you have a background in social work !! Great direction to go the psych np route!! As far as they’re pre reqs i am currently in A&P 2 andmicro . I have had As in there reqs so far . I think you have to pass them with atleasta B
