I applied on the last night of the application period, December 31st, 2019, and received my acceptance email (I posted the email below) on February 7th: Please read this email carefully and completely before responding! Congratulations, your application has been reviewed by our Admissions Committee and you can now move forward with the application process for the BSN program starting July 6, 2020. The next step will be for us to arrange a time for you to come in for your interview and tour of the school. This interview should take around two hours. At this meeting we’ll review your application, tour the facility, meet with financial aid, cover all immunization requirements and you’ll get more in depth information on how everything works at DCN. At the conclusion of our interview we’ll be setting up a time for you to come back within a two week period to finalize your enrollment paperwork and your tuition financing. Applicants that have already graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college do not have to take the HESI A2 entrance exam. You need to respond to me via email no later than 4pm on Friday February 14 to set up your appointment as we have a lot of applications for this start. If you are no longer interested in moving forward with your application, please let me know that as well. You cannot defer your start date. I typically meet with in state students Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. I start my first appointment around 10am and start my last appointment no later than 2pm. I’ll be meeting with applicants April 9 through April 24. When you respond to this email please let me know what days of the week and times during your normal week (not specific dates) that will work best for you under the parameters mentioned above. You need to bring any official transcripts, immunization records, CPR and health insurance card with you (if you have them). If you’re not absolutely sure that you’ll be able to finance the program as well as covering your living expenses (remember that government student loans and grants will not cover your costs) please contact the Financial Aid department and make sure you’ll be OK before you plan and confirm your appointment. Again, congratulations on making it through the first step toward starting your program at DCN accredited by the ACEN, CCNE and regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. It might take a few days before I respond back to you. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
