I'm currently finishing up an ABSN program and will be done this August! I want to start NP school in Fall 2020. Once I finish my ABSN program and hopefully pass the NCLEX I'll be working as an RN while applying for FNP programs.
I wanted to get advice about the process of applying to NP schools, any insight from folks who are in NP school or are NPs currently, and any input about the following schools that I plan on applying to! Although I've done a lot of research about the schools and looked at reviews of students who went to these schools, I don't know much about how competitive it is to get into these schools' programs.
I'll be applying with a 3.5 nursing GPA, 3.45 cumulative GPA, and will be in the process of gaining nursing experience while applying to these schools. My first degree was in Chemistry. I'm afraid about whether or not my stats are even strong enough for these schools.
Any input would be much appreciated!!
Here are the schools I'm planning to apply to:
University of Rochester, University of Pennsylvania, Ohio State University, University of Miami, Illinois State University, Vanderbilt, Case Western Reserve, University of Connecticut, University of Cincinnati, California State University Long Beach
