I hope you are well. I wanted to send a message to ask about the UCONN AGACNP program because I read a few of your posts and I'm highly interested. I really want to specialize in cardiology. I have only been a RN for the past 2 years on an interventional cardiology floor, hoping to get maybe another two years of CCU experience and then apply. The one thing I'm worried about is my GPA. I have a 3.8 from my RN-BSN, a 3.2 from my nursing diploma, but I actually do have a previous Bachelors degree in Allied Health Sciences from UCONN from 2012 that is 2.5...hmm I'm hoping if UCONN would consider that I matured and learned from my mistakes. I just want to ask what the curriculum, online or in person, was like and any advice on how to make my application stand out. Also I don't really want to work in the ICU/CCU as a NP, more like cath lab or patients with CHF, would it make sense to still go for my AGACNP or just FNP. Thank you 😄
