    Yale GEPN Applicants 2011

    Kelysee- Yup there is an official one created by Yale...they send the link out in a follow-up email after you've accepted. See if this works: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/home.php?sk=group_146959355368800&ap=1 It's called YSN New Students Tanya

    Not me Tho...but I've already accepted Yale's offer of admission so I can't say I'm too upset

    Sgmaygeorge- I'm going into adult psych and would really appreciate it if you could forward me this student's info or the info for the student in adult psych specifically so I can ask her about this. This is a bit bothersome, especially since the director, who I interviewed with, is one of the main reasons I want to accept Yale! Thanks so much!

    I'm signing the Columbia rejection today also...such a relief and load off my shoulders to have finally decided!

    Rainbow - is your quote of 160k including living expenses? I'm separating the 2, and my math comes out to ~50k the 1st year and ~35k the next 2 years, so about 120k or so for tuition and school expenses alone. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something! Also, the new grad school rankings came out today and Yale moved up from #4 to #1 in psychiatric mental health nursing! http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-nursing-schools/mental-health-nursing-rankings ...can you tell psych is my specialty?! . It is interesting though that this ranking is for psychiatric CNS, not NP, and I don't believe Yale offers PMH-CNS anymore. I can only hope this stellar ranking applies to their PMHNP program as well!

    I want to make sure I'm interpreting my financial aid info correctly. Does anyone else notice that for the 1st year, there is no scholarship, only loans offered? It seems there's a 25k scholarship but it isn't awarded until the 2nd and 3rd years. Is this correct? thanks guys!

    OHSU Accelerated Bachelors to Masters 2011

    Hi Partera- Much of what she said was related to the psychiatric mental health specialty, but there were a couple points that were more general. She said the accelerated portion of the program (1st 15 months) revolved around teaching students the foundations of thinking like a nurse - how to deal with conflict, motivational interviewing, cultural awareness, a lot of theory and fewer hands-on skills. Your 2 clinical days during your 1st summer aren't actually in a hospital but rather in a skills lab/simulation environment where you learn to do head to toe physical assessments, vitals, giving injections, etc. For this you mostly practice on one another although they occasionally use robots. During the 2nd term you're in the hospital one day/week for clinical, and with the small cohort of 64 each student is matched 1:1 with a preceptor (max of 2 per preceptor). The 2nd summer is called intensive practical/practicum because that's when all you do is clinicals, 40 hours/week in your specialty. This student said she felt the program was very disorganized (it is only 3 years old), and many students found this frustrating. She also said the 2nd term of pharmacology was online and that didn't sit well with many students either. Epidemiology was also online, and with the cost of the program (same as Yale, like 150k), this also frustrated many students. Hope this helps! Also, this week we should be getting a call from someone who is currently in the program.

    OHSU Accelerated Bachelors to Masters 2011

    I spoke with a current student and relayed to her what admissions told me about not being able to work, and she said last year (her cohort) it was different and they said you need to work. OHSU is really pushing the DNP though, and this student said maybe they are trying to cram more classes into the actual program to make the DNP portion only take an additional year.

    OHSU Accelerated Bachelors to Masters 2011

    I spoke with someone in admissions yesterday who told me they DO award the BSN @ OHSU. I also have a phone date with a current PMHNP student in an hour who I actually dug up on some old allnurses forum! Hopefully she can give me specific program info. Something admissions said worried me. I asked if after we get our BSN and sit for the NCLEX, then receive our RN, if we will be able to work (i.e. in the 2nd and 3rd year of the program). The woman in admissions said most likely no due to the accelerated nature of the program. I asked even in the 2nd and 3rd year and she still said no. That's weird to me and kinda scary to have such an expensive program and be out of work for the entire time. From other schools, my impression is that only the 1st year is the accelerated year, and that in the specialty years we join other traditional track students, so those years are essentially traditional MSN/NP programs. Any thoughts anyone?

    Is anyone on here living in San Diego and attending Mira Costa College? I tutor at MCC and one of my students says she knows another student who was accepted to the GEPN program this year...just wondering if maybe that person is on here???

    Pam - did you join the 2011 GEPN Facebook group I created? If not, scroll up this page and you will find the link. I'm sure you can also search in FB for "Yale 2011 GEPN". You are from CA also right (sorry I've exchanged emails with quite a few people from this thread so I get the info mixed up sometimes!)? If you still live here, we should meet up before school begins. I am not 100% decided on Yale, but almost there lol. I'm still mulling over Columbia and OHSU and have to decide pretty darn soon!

    OHSU Accelerated Bachelors to Masters 2011

    Can anyone send me any info on specifics of the accelerated program? I was accepted for the psych specialty, but they didn't arrange a day for us to visit, didn't send any info other than financial aid with the acceptance letter, and told me they were "busy processing undergraduate apps" when I asked if I could come visit the campus and meet an admissions counselor or someone who could give me program/school details. I am very hesitant to accept an offer from a school whose program I know nothing about and who basically tried to brush me off when I asked if I could make a trip out there to see for myself. Any info would be sooo helpful & greatly appreciated! Structure, 1st year plan, etc. Thanks guys

    Farful & Everyone! - I created a 2011 GEPN group on FB so we can all easily connect with each other. Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/editgroup.php?gid=146360438760568#!/home.php?sk=group_146360438760568 There are 3 members already, and this will be a great way for us to get to know each other, ask questions, find roomates, and vent. Looking forward to getting to know everyone =) Tanya

    I'm pretty sure you can defer for a year...call the school and check though

    Tsorfia- I was also a bit unimpressed at admitted students day, and am trying to decide between Columbia, Yale, and OHSU. Out of curiosity, where did you decide to go?
