    For those of you who are accepted, have you responded and started working on the packet yet? Or are you all waiting to hear from other schools?

    USA DNP Fall 2017

    I received an acceptance email as well for the MSN program (made my previous post right before checking my email)! I said I wasn't going to get too excited in another thread but seeing that others have received emails as well I guess that's good news! Yay! Congrats and good luck to everyone waiting!

    Got an acceptance email this morning but won't get too excited until I have the official letter in hand! Email said we should receive letters soon.

    Were letters only sent out for DNP? Or does that include MSN as well?

    University of South Alabama DNP fall 2017

    Congrats on the acceptance! I have applied to USA and UAB. I have yet to hear from either one so I'm anxiously awaiting answers. Hopefully next week we will hear something.

    I applied to the MSN program but no, I have not heard anything yet.

    UAB MSN fall 2017

    I applied as well. I was looking at the thread from last year. They found out if they were in by logging into BlazerNet around April 15th. Letters were supposedly sent out on April 18th. Have you tried logging into BlazerNet yet?

    USA DNP Fall 2017

    I applied to the MSN program. I called last week to make sure they received everything for my application. I was told to expect letters 8-10 weeks after the deadline. 10 weeks is the end of April. Let the wait begin.

    I submitted my application and did not select a second choice either.

    university south Alabama fall 2017 NP applicants

    I have applied for the WHNP track. GPA calculated by NursingCAS as 3.76. I'm not sure if the essay was required in previous semesters, but yes, it was a requirement for us. I hope it's not too long after the deadline that they notify us. I see the summer 2017 people are starting to receive their acceptance/rejection letters now.

    2017 application cycle

    I plan on submitting my application to UAB and USA right after the New Year for Fall 2017. I don't really have a first choice since those are the only two I'm applying to. I'll be happy with either one.

    FNP vs. WHNP

    I'm kind of in your position now. Although I'm not in an NP program yet, I plan on applying next year. I feel as though Women's Health is the ONLY area that I want to work in, however, I know that it might be extremely difficult gaining employment after graduation. So right now my dilemma is: go to school for FNP, absolutely HATE the material I learn about and the clinical portion, BUT be more flexible after graduation, or, go for WHNP, love the material/clinical, but deal with the difficulties of not finding a job right away. Pretty hard decision to make. Right now I've just decided to volunteer in a Women's Health clinic to get my feet wet (no previous WH experience), and see where that leads me. Maybe I'll be able to network, meet some great people, and it might lessen the burden of finding a job after graduation. Nothing set in stone, but it sounds like a decent plan. I guess we'll see how well that goes in due time.

    How much is too much?

    Since the last post I started volunteering at a Women's Health clinic just to get a feel for it to make sure that is what I want to do before I decide to apply to a program. After a few months I hope to get a part-time job there, and that will help me with the experience I need as far as actually getting into a program, as well as the clinical portion of the program; and perhaps it might make it a little easier for me to get a job once graduating depending on how well I network. As far as what doctors offices are hiring around here, in a few clinics I've noticed some of them advertise for both FNP and WHNP. Not sure what they would prefer, but I'm assuming WHNP just because there's more training in that field, but I guess it all depends. I'm still doing research on everything, especially in my area. Haven't 100% made up my mind yet but I'll keep you guys updated.
