    Yale 2015

    Sure! I did an accererated BSN program at OHSU (another top notch program) and find that the two programs are comparable in quality. They typically clump the incoming RNs and the GEPNs together during the orientation process for the last few weeks of August. I found that orientation was heavily GEPN focused. I think that there are many changes that will be happening as far as the pathophysiology class and advanced health assessment classes go that I took last semester. It sounds like the administration is looking at 'cutting the fat' when it comes to these classes. The faculty is very organized as far as coordinating and communicating clinical placements. Quality of lectures is actually rather interesting. YSN actually has A LOT of guest lecturers, and they are usually renowned specialists in their respective fields. I find that there are more opportunities at YSN than other schools (global health travel, plant-based health classes, creative writing (nursing specific) etc)

    Yale 2015

    Hi jae919, I am a current RN student that joined YSN this year. It is incorrect that RN spots are only for "GEPNs that have dropped out". There is usually about 50ish RNs accepted this year. Anywhere between 15-25 matriculate. Melissa told me that many RNs that are accepted will be offered raises by their nurse managers, and therefore defer admissions. There was about 10 incoming FNP RNs this year. Hope this information helps!

    2014 RN Applicants to Yale School of Nursing

    I received my acceptance letter on April 1st too! I thought that I would receive some sort of email about a change in the status of my application, but I logged on and it was there! SaintlyJ, I've read your posts for awhile now, and I just wanted to tell you that they have been so helpful to me throughout this stressful process. If you dont mind, I have a few questions for you... First, how was the process of applying for CT licensure? Is it necessary to apply for licenses in other states that we might have clinicals in? How was the process for the physical, drug screen, immunizations and such? I have two dogs that I will be bringing. I'm planning on living in West Haven, but housing options are looking a little grim at this point in time. Have you heard of anyone that has a dog and found adequate housing? Thanks!

    Columbia ETP Program 2012 entry

    From what I understood, the waitlist is not ranked according to speciality areas. I'm not sure how they are informing waitlisters, but I'm assuming it's by email. Additionally, I was told that everyone should know their status as of March 15. I'm taking that last bit of info with a grain of salt...

    Just talked to admissions. Looks like they have begun taking people off the waitlist!

    The role of CNMs in abortion care

    Actually, i currently work at Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette. CNMs do perform surgical and medical abortions. It depends on the state

    The role of CNMs in abortion care

    Hello I am wondering if there is any programs that educate/train midwives in abortion care. There are currently six states which allow NPs to perform procedures. I am wondering if abortion care is included within the midwifery curriculum of any school. I am posting for strictly educational and healthcare inquiries into the field. Please refrain from responding if you have any sort of moral judgment on this particular topic.

    Applying to accelerated CNM programs

    Hello! I am curious as to how competitive i would be for some of the accelerated CNM programs. Im mainly thinking of OHSU, Yale, Columbia, U of Penn, and perhaps UCSF. I have a undergraduate degree in Politics and Womens studies. I graduated with a 3.6 GPA. I am currently working at Planned Parenthood and training to become a doula. I guess my main question, am i even competitive for these programs? Should i look at taking a different route.
