  1. Is anyone here in this program or have graduated from this program? What has your experience been like? Anyone else starting there this Fall? Thanks very much.

    ANCC FNP Board Exam

    I passed my board exam yesterday. Prior to taking the exam, I searched this board for advice/tips and thought it was very helpful. I am posting now to pay it forward. This is what I did to prepare (2 weeks: around 4 hours a day): 1. I took a DRT exam from Barkley to see how much I remembered (took the boards 7 months after I graduated) and what I need to focus on. Tip: take the test as soon as you can after you graduate. It's hard to get back into studying mode if you wait too long and you would've forgotten much of what you learned in school. If you get a 70 or above, you will very likely pass the boards. 2. Read the ANCC FNP exam outline. 3. Listened to all of the online FNP lectures from Barkley. (Very useful but very time consuming) I took notes so I can I quickly look it over before the exam. 4. Read the Leik book: read the tips. If you have time, do the questions in the back and read the rationales. I didn't. Download the app: read and do questions. 5. Google pictures of different skin conditions. There were a few pictorial questions for you to pick a skin condition. 6. Took another DRT exam from Barkley. Read the rationales at the end. 7. Had coffee, ate breakfast and went to the exam center. Go at least 30 minutes before the exam. Make sure you use the restroom right before you start your exam. There are no breaks once you start. You will lose exam time if you need to use the bathroom after. You got this! Study hard and get it. Good luck!

    Health Risk Asssessment Job in NYC

    Anyone doing health risk assessments in NYC? What is your rate per assessment? Do you get anything else in addition to the assessment rate? What company do you work for? Anyone from DCO? Do you like it? Any tips for someone starting this as a side job? Thanks for your help in advance!

    Pace ABSN program starting 2013

    From what I hear, this program kicks out a lot of students because of failing grades. If that's true then I'm not sure what their NCLEX pass rate would indicate.

    NYU BSN Fall 2012

    On my acceptance letter for the Accelerated BS program, it says that you are not allowed to defer your enrollment. It's probably true for your program as well.

    Pace ABSN program starting 2013

    ABSN, Since the 6 graduate credits are taken within the 3 semesters, I would think that the $16,048 per semester would cover that. Therefore, I think $48,144 would cover the entire program. "The graduates from the CDP program seem to be very well prepared for the nursing profession." Why do you say that? Do you know nurses that went to Pace? I'm asking because I'm considering attending Pace CDP this September. Thanks.

    Pace University CDP Fall 2012

    Maybe you can go directly to the school and ask for a hard copy of the acceptance. If they have already accepted you, I don't see why they wouldn't just make a copy of the acceptance letter and give it to you. Good luck!

    Missjj, I also applied on March 1st. Make sure your application is complete. If it is, then all you can do is wait. Good luck!

    NYU BSN Fall 2012

    I received my acceptance letter today! For those accepted: how much scholarships and what kind of loans did you guys get? I'm still trying to decide whether to go to Pace or NYU... I'm planning on getting my MS as well. Pace's program is 3 semesters shorter in total from BS to MS. What do you guys think? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Pace University CDP Fall 2012

    Does anyone know what the total cost of Pace's 1 year program is? Also, looking at the NYU website: "Prior to entering the specialty courses of a respective nursing master's program, at least one year of full-time clinical experience as a registered nurse is required for all master's programs, except for the following programs: Nursing Education requires three years of clinical experience as a registered nurse; Advanced Practice Nursing: Pediatrics requires one year of relevant clinical experience as a registered nurse in pediatrics." It looks like for NYU, you have to have worked as an RN for a year before entering into the MS portion of the program but for Pace, you are able to enter into the MS portion following the BS portion.

    Amchugh209, is it true that with Pace, you can go directly into the MS portion of the program after you finish the BS portion but with NYU, they require you to have worked as an RN for a year before you can start the MS portion? Thanks! Congrats on getting accepted to both schools!

    I was told that I should receive my decision by yesterday but no word from NYU yet. I submitted my application on March 1st. Anyone have any updates on when we should receive the decision? Thanks!

    NYU Transfers Fall 2012

    I'm patiently waiting for the email. I logged onto NYU Albert today and still notices that my transcripts have not been checked off. Should I be concerned?
