I'm certain I want to get my MSN like many of you here. I emailed asking about the process (specifically for acute care) and got the response below. Does this concern anyone else?
"Due to the large enrollment in our MSN Program currently, we are having to make some changes to the pathway option. *Basically, there will be set deadlines as to when an ABSN student can apply to the program. *Then, each specialty will have a set number of spaces for ABSN students. *For Acute Care, they will want you to have experience, but you could obtain this experience while working and taking classes part time. We do have some students who are able to get a job in the ICU right away. *It depends on how many positions are available and where you are wanting to work. *I wouldn't say that everyone who wants to work there gets a job, but there will be some who do.
If you have additional questions, just let me know. *We'll be able to provide more details on this new policy for ABSN-MSN very soon."
