  1. Hi csweetooth, I don't know what they are accepting now but my cohort (the May 08-09) had 27 people accepted initially and we graduated with 28 because we had one join us half way through from a previous cohort. Oh, and I believe that rn2bnwi did get in and is currently doing the program for the May 09-10, at least that's the impression that I got when she said it was intense but doable... To those of you in it now, keep trucking, it will be over before you know it! :)
  2. I did my online interview shortly after my application was submitted in Oct. I did my phone interview a few weeks after that (end of Oct). I found out that I was accepted (for the May of 08-09 cohort) by email a couple weeks before Christmas (and was told not to expect to know anything until January). The questions for my online interview weren't so much why do you want to be a nurse but more why do you want to be in THIS program, what have you done to prepare, what are your professional goals, why do you think you will be successful in this learning environment, etc. (Oh and Cari001- I have emailed you a couple times now with the address you sent me...so if you haven't gotten anything from me, check your junk email?)
  3. Cari~ I got your private message but since I just registered for the site I can't reply. If you want to shoot me another one with your email- I can email you back with answers to your questions...~Jenn
  4. Congratulations to those of you who are just starting! :) I'm just finishing up (from the May 08 Cohort) and you are in for an intense and exciting year! Cari- it seems like forever ago since I was thinking about applying...but I remember also being told by the advisor for the program that those applicants who already had everything COMPLETED at the time their application was submitted would probably be prefered (and that CNA experience was weighed a bit). I was originally going to apply for the Oct 07 corhort but actually held off because I was still taking a couple pre-reqs that spring semester when the application was due and was just starting my CNA job and she told me my application would be stronger for May of 08 then (so I ended up getting in the first time I applied). If you have questions though, she really is helpful! Her contact info can be found on the CON's website here: http://www.uwosh.edu/con/undergrad/accelerated.php However, like RN said, it can't really hurt to apply... I'd be happy to answer any other questions you guys have about the program...and for those of you just starting, you're going to love it (most of the time)!
