    Direct Entry FNP Program vs MPH Cost

    Thank you for your thoughtful response @reticularformation. You hit many great points. I am going to be a little sad missing out on an experience at Yale, but I need to keep the bigger picture in mind of graduating with as little debt as possible.

    2019-2020 HRSA NHSC Scholarship

    Does anyone know when applications open for NHSC? I can't seem to find a link to apply or deadlines on the website.

    Yale GEPN 2020

    How does everyone plan on paying for school? The cost of the school is really dissuading me. Although I will apply for scholarships. Did anyone get a good amount of scholarship offer from Yale? I only got $11,000 for the first year.
  4. I was admitted to Yale's Direct Entry - GEPN program (FNP specialty). For the past 3 years I had been working towards applying to direct entry programs and am very excited to be admitted. However, the cost of the school is making anxious. Estimated costs for the first year is $100,000 and I was only offered $11,000 as a Scholarship. The last two years are approximately $50,000 each. I know if I accept, I will need to apply to Scholarships - nurse corps and HRSA being some of them. Not a guarantee, but I feel that my experiences make me a competitive applicant. At the same time, I applied to a few MPH programs, more as a backup plan. I was accepted to UC Berkeley's Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health. I am offered $15,000/year Scholarship, which would cover tuition and then some. Free education!! That is very appealing to me. Also I already live in the Bay Area, so moving would not be a hurdle. So now I am stuck! I want to hear people's thoughts on the cost of school. I do not want to be $100,000+ in debt, although I know people do it and it's possible to pay off. But it is very daunting. Thoughts and insights would be appreciated.

    When Nurses Say the Wrong Thing: 4 Ways to Improve

    Last weekend I was in the emergency room with my dad. This was the second time this month he needed to go to the emergency room and be admitted. My dad expressed he did not want to stay overnight, but I told him it is what the medical staff highly recommended. Either way, he took it like a champ. My dad is a very positive person and friendly to medical staff. One nurse came in (I don't remember what for), but she had been the nurse to take down my dad's information when we entered the ER. My dad asked her how she was doing. She responded, "Better than you!!" and laughed. My dad chuckled. I was so confused as to why she would say that. She left and I asked my dad if he had worked with her before. I thought that maybe they had built some kind of rapport where they joked with each other like that. He said no, this was the first time he had interacted with her and that it's just her personality. He did not seemed too bothered by it, I think I was more bothered by it than my dad. I thought it was insensitive and inappropriate for anyone to say to a patient. Thoughts?

    Yale GEPN 2020

    I recall attending a GEPN session in which the facilitator mentioned that sometimes students do the GEPN portion, then take time to be an RN, and go back to finish the Masters portion. Does anyone know more about this?

    Yale GEPN 2020

    @thet0wn20 I asked this during my interview, if it's common for students to take courses outside their specialties/other departments. I interviewed for FNP. My interviewer said it is not common. Not only is the GEPN jam packed, but for the 2nd and 3rd years, FNP's are required to do the most clinical hours, so it doesn't leave much time for outside courses. I had asked because I had read on the website that this is an opportunities students could have, so maybe for other specialties it is more do-able.

    I didn't feel that great about my interview either. At least the beginning of the interview I felt like a response I gave, the interviewer did not really like it and dug a little deeper and felt that my response was framed in a not-so-positive light. But then again, maybe I'm just projecting. So I'm trying not to ruminate too much on it. There are other parts of ourselves and our experiences that make us awesome candidates. @MaleNP they share a link with you via email, then your device just has to agree to use the camera and mic. So it should work on an iPad.

I found this group because like a lot of you, I have been feeling nervous/anxious about my upcoming interview. ahh! It's a breath of fresh air to know there is a community out here!
