      Hi! They had a PMHNP webinar today. I applied for Summer 2020 and found out today that I won't be eligible to start in Summer since I finish my BSN in April. I ended up e-mailing Dr. Kearney after the webinar and what she told me was that since I still had a pending "to-do" on my application (my proof of BSN), they most likely would not be calling me for an interview. I'm super bummed out. She said I would be eligible for Fall 2020 start, but on a part-time basis. I asked if starting in Fall full time was an option and she said no. I honestly don't know what to do now! I know they mentioned they are interviewing for Summer already but she didn't mention interviewing for Fall. My guess is that they are focusing on Summer admissions at this time.

      Thank you for replying! I wonder why you would only be eligible for part time in the fall? That’s odd.

      Yes I thought that was odd too. Dr.Kearney said full time is Summer start only. 
      Have you heard from them yet? Are you looking into any other programs?

    Desperately need advice and encouragement

    "If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you". I say go for it, at your own, comfortable pace. Age shouldn't be a factor. Where there's a want, there's a will. My recommendation is to obtain your ADN and start working as an RN. At that point, if you would like to pursue your BSN, you can do that also at your own pace, all while already in the nursing workforce. There are so many avenues you can take once you obtain your RN. If you find you don't have the stomach for it, you can try something in administration, nursing informatics, or quality assurance, just to name a few. Nursing is an amazing field. Your hard work will pay off! Best of luck to you!!

    Duke NP graduates.... worth it?

    Thanks for your encouragement FullGlass. I'm going to start looking into the Nurse Corps Scholarship and other scholarship opportunities.

    Duke NP graduates.... worth it?

    I just wanted to bump this thread.... I really enjoyed reading this as I am currently in the application process at Duke. I have an interview later this month. I have heard from many physicians at my work on how impressed they are of me choosing Duke and have wished me tons of luck in the process. As someone else mentioned here, as NP's, we will likely be hired by physicians who do care about where we obtained our education. I feel that obtaining a Duke education will give me an advantage over other applicants. The problem goes back to COST. And here is where I'm stuck.

    Duke Fall MSN 2020

    So as I get closer to my interview date, I'm starting to question if the cost of attending Duke is really worth the debt I'm going to incur. I'm not sure if my mind is just trying to prepare itself for a possible rejection or if this question is truly an issue. I applied to Duke back in November trying to make the December 1st deadline knowing that Duke has an amazing nursing program. A part of me didn't think I would make it this far. I'm excited, nervous, scared.... Any thoughts?
