Hi fellow nurses,
I thought I would start a thread for all of us applying to Missouri state for the 2020 class start.
From what I have read in the past interviews are on a Saturday in January for those of us that put our applications in later. There are some who will be interviewed early because they submitted their application earlier this year. They want you to have your CCRN, but will accept the GRE as well. They like you to have at lease 2 years in ICU, but have made exceptions from what a past poster said. As long as you are enrolled and finish any required prerequisites before your interview I think you will still be considered. Last year I believe they accepted 24 into the program and will probably be admitting around the same amount this year. I’m super excited to attend school. I am uncertain of my GPA for the last 60 hours because I have a 3.6 for my ADN and 3.7 for my BSN, ( mostly A’s and a few B’s for both programs) but I think I’m good. I have not taken the GRE nor do I plan to. I have worked in L&D for 1 year, stepdown for 6 months, CCU for 1 year and I have been in a level 1 trauma medical ICU for 2.5 years. I precept, charge, shadow, volunteer, participate in committees and have my CCRN, TNCC, ACLS, PALS, BLS and NIHSS certs. I am taking organic chemistry now, but I have A’s in all the prerequisites except chemistry 2, it is a B. Hope I get the A in organic chemistry now though. I live 3 hours from the school, so I’d probably just stay on campus and come home on weekends. I have been working extremely hard toward this goal for about 4 years now and I feel good about my chances. I will update when I get word of my interview and if/when I get in! How about you?
