  1. Graduate Programs MGHIHP, BC, NE

    I attend the IHP. I came into the direct-entry program and am in my last semester. Overall, I feel like I've gotten a good education. However, I've had my frustrations. The BS program of the portion left a lot to be desired. The 1/2 half (NP portion)...
  2. Do you see a generational gap in nursing?

    I'm mid-way through a graduate program at 34. Its a second career for me. There are a lot of hard working people in my class in their mid-20s. However, I've been somewhat shocked the work ethic of some younger people. There seems to be a mentality of...
  3. I do not care anymore

    I'm just getting into nursing after being a dietitian for 9 years. I know that feeling of frustration and burn out with patients not listening. The diabetic patient who has ulcers and yells at me because he wants extra sweets even though his blood su...
  4. For direct-entry programs Stafford and Grad Plus loans can be used to cover the "cost of attendance" set forth by the school/program. This includes tuition, fees, books, health insurance, room and board etc. You can also request an increase in the "c...
  5. Got into MSN/ MGH....now what...

    Does MGH allow deferrals? I'm back to freaking out about the $$$! That may be a good option for me as well. Thanks!
  6. Got into MSN/ MGH....now what...

    I honestly wouldn't think where you get your degree is going to matter than much. It's not like we are business people deciding whether to get an MBA at Harvard or U Mass. With some fields/careers reputation and connections are a good portion of what...
  7. Got into MSN/ MGH....now what...

    I'm going to go. Can't imagine doing what I'm doing now for another 30 years.
  8. Got into MSN/ MGH....now what...

    I'm wondering if it's an age thing. I've noticed there are a number of students in their early to mid 20s. Not that any of us are even close to old but as you get older and have more life experiences you start to realize that there are trade offs in ...
  9. 2009 Direct Entry MSN at MGHIHP

    Hi! I took the first test and the first 6 quizzes. He might have corrected the errors because they seemed to fit with the material in the book. I haven't actually even viewed the tutor so maybe that's helping me if there are mistakes in it. :) He ha...
  10. 2009 Direct Entry MSN at MGHIHP

    Just as an fyi for the Science Summer if anyone happens to be in the same boat I was in. Chemistry was all I had left to take this Summer and I'm currently not living in Boston. I couldn't find any local classes (LA) that fit the description of what ...
  11. 2009 Direct Entry MSN at MGHIHP

    I'm freaking out a little over the money too now that MGH is starting to feel more like a reality. It's a lot of money! It's hard to justify. I'm almost 33, so be done at 36 and then own $150,000 plus of debt. Even if I pay $1000/month for the subseq...
  12. Got into MSN/ MGH....now what...

    Great question! I'm in the same boat as you. Got into MGH and very excited about it. I'm working now as a dietitian in California and making a good income ~$70,000-75,000 per year. I haven't really enjoyed being a dietitian for a long time, felt like...
  13. Need interview help!!! Northeastern Direct Entry

    I've heard the trend is going against requiring those types of standardized tests because they don't really reflect a person's ability to do well in school at the graduate level or in a career. A lack of GRE requirement I don't think makes the progra...
  14. Need interview help!!! Northeastern Direct Entry

    That's ridiculous! So not worth your effort to re-apply and wait another year to get in! :) The whole NEU thing is crazy to me. Rolling admissions, a variable number of spots, lack of communication, 4 years etc. Who knows if I would have gotten in bu...
  15. Need interview help!!! Northeastern Direct Entry

    I've yet to hear anything from NEU either. I finally called yesterday and left a message, nothing yet. I had sent an e-mail about a month ago but didn't get a response to that. Interesting..... Do you see advantages of NEU over Simmons and MGH? Mostl...
