  1. Hi, I'm interested in learning more about your educational experience at Wilkes in the PMHNP program. Please follow up I have a few questions.

    Hmmmm......that I'm not sure, somehow I doubt they would let you do that. This degree/cert (depending on your route) is supposed to cover lifespan. Not having to do regular adults sounds like a stretch, the way they metabolize medicine, the way disorders present and the comorbidities are just different in a lot of ways, so they may feel you were not getting all the clinical benefits. But if they do and you already have a site then more power to ya, especially if that's the population you want to stay with!😊

    @nursedebir Yes, I got that paper like a month ago. They said once they send out packets and we are actually enrolled in classes then it would activate.

    One thing I'm hoping for is no group work. I've heard some programs are heavy with group work and I really can't stand it.😑

    Yes, they sent me my Wilkes log in information for the school, but it's too early to be active (that came in the mail). Before it's active you need to receive your enrollment information. Nursing will put enrollment schedules together and send them to all those accepted....assuming you have paid the deposit. No idea when those will go out or how, whether it will be snail mail or email. At least, that is what has been related to me. I'm doing the post msn program, but there's no reason why our info would be recieved differently I would think. Congratulations!

    I tried joining but I don't think I was accepted? I'll have to check. I don't know how I'm paying yet, not sure what my options are. I'd rather do labs I don't want to pay out of pocket but will if I have to of course.

    @kaylee @Nurseannblessings Yay!!!!!! Congratulations you guys!!!! I hope we can be good resources for others who need it, there's not a lot of people who talk about the actual program on here. Some of the ones I did find were like people asking to be PM'd for info (how does that help anyone else?🙄) Excited and nervous for the journey!

    When you get accepted, you pay the deposit and then just sit back and wait for them to contact you with official welcome packets, which I found out today ( I was wondering what what was happening). Not sure when that will be. So be prepared for that. Though it probably will be quicker response since I guess you guys will know in October? I believe we all will start at the same time though.

    I had all my stuff in 7/22. And I already had previous psych experience, my entire nursing career is psych, that's all I have ever wanted to do. I'm not sure what Wilkes looks at specifically, but my graduate GPA was a 3.96. My regular nursing GPA was just a 3.17. I don't think the criteria to get in is particularly high, they were just easy to apply to so I went with them.

    I was told decisions for Spring 2020 would be made early September by the nursing department, and they were right. My acceptance came September 12th. They notify you by email to you check your student account and from there you can the acceptance letter. Then they direct you to pay $300 holding fee for your seat. After that I don't know. My advisor won't be back til the 23rd of this month, so I have no idea what comes next or what perspective students are to do🤔 As far as the program goes, I don't know much. There's some posts around here but not many that go into any great detail about what it's like once you're in.

    Did anyone else get accepted into the Wilkes University PMHNP program? I got accepted into the post-MSN for Spring 2020. Got my acceptance letter today.
  14. Recently, a coworker of mine killed a patient. Not on purpose, the MAR was handwritten and he didn't see the decimal point. The patient coded and ended up needing compressions. He was taken to the ER and ended up brain dead as a result. He's a relatively new nurse. I know the state was called and they showed up, but they didn't come to my unit so I don't know what they were looking for. I've made a med error before but not one that caused injury or death, gave it at the wrong time, but it was the right med so nothing ever came from it but it was still scary and woke me up. All my coworkers have made a small med error at least once, but not one that has ever harmed anyone. What happens when a nurse kills someone? Do they lose their licence? We all know what happened but since it was so serious none of the administration will openly address it with us, like they think if they don't talk about it that it will go away. But I'm still curious to know, do they suspend your licence or do they take it? This is why I hate handwritten Mars. My coworker got fired so it's not like I can ask him, and I probably wouldn't anyways because I don't know him that well.

    Which was your worst class? I just finished 5007 and 6003, those weren't bad at all. There's a class I saw on my academic plan called advanced financial operations which sounds miserable, I pray I don't have to use excel.

    What skills are needed?

    I currently work in psych and have done so since I graduated. I love psych, but I'd like to do corrections. With just a psych background could I do corrections since so many of the inmates have mental health issues? Or do they need other experience? I was a combat medic in the Army, so if someone is bleeding out all over the place, stand back.....I got this. But I don't know if that will count towards being hired. Do they want med surg or what?
