    Caring for MAT Patients

    In my experience and in the literature, MAT stands for Medication Assisted Treatment, not methadone assisted treatment. MAT encompasses multiple types of medication used in treating a substance use disorder: methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone are the most common. I realize this is an older post, but it should still provide accurate information. There is so much stigma and misinformation regarding SUD treatment, it's important to be accurate when educating other healthcare professionals. Thank you for writing his article.

    Finding Work as a New Grad

    Where were those when I graduated 4 months ago? Lol All the Winchester postings back then said "no new grads!" Best of luck to you OP. I am working outpatient so I don't have any helpful advice for you, sorry.

    U Mass Boston Clinical Sites

    I'm in the accelerated program and our clinical sites have been: Adult health: BMC, Beth Israel-Needham, BIDMC, Psych: VA-Brockton, McLean, Emerson Maternity: BIDMC, St Elizabeths, south shore hospital, good samaritan, Cambridge hospital Community: VA-JP, Norwell VNA Peds: BMC, Boston childrens, Newton-Wellesley Our preceptorship sites are supposed to also include MGH and Brigham & Women's. I've heard some of the traditional students clinical sites to include the above plus MGH, Brigham, Cambridge public schools, Boston-area community health centers (so many to list!). The only big hospital I haven't heard of any UMB student being at is Tufts...but again I don't know where past students may have been out if that's anther option for traditional students. Hope this helps!

    UMass Boston Accelerated BSN 2014

    For lexielou22 and anyone else who may be reading/lurking here is the response I got from financial aid, with my comments in parentheses: "[COLOR=#1f497d]We will not be awarding summer students until the first or second week of May. Since you are a second BA student, you will only be eligible to receive federal loans. (duh, I already know this but I still want to know how much!) You will not be able to see your bill until you register for classes during orientation, (they've already had us register for summer and fall) therefore you won’t know whether or not you will need additional funding until then. (I'm sure this will be a valid reason to any outside loan when I ask them to expedite so I don't get dropped from classes!) Ughhh this still makes me so nervous, knowing there will be just a few weeks to pull all the financial aid stuff together. Guess we don't have much of a choice though! Forward march :)

    UMass Boston Accelerated BSN 2014

    So I tried emailing a few of my questions to the person who has sent out all the info so far. She was nice and helpful to a point. But my financial aid and health insurance questions have to go to those respective departments. I'll keep posting when I hear more.

    UMass Boston Accelerated BSN 2014

    So they sent an email today with a ton of helpful info, but still not much in the way of financial aid. I think I'm going to try calling next week. I'm glad to have the textbook info finally though. Also the system wouldn't let me register for classes yet, even though all the instructions said to do that ASAP. Anyone else have any luck, with registering or aid?

    I know this thread's been a little quiet lately, but has anyone heard anything from UMass about financial aid at this point? The usual disclaimer applies: I know there's less aid available, second bachelor's and all. But I'm still anxious to get something from the school so I can figure out what loans I need to apply for.

    Northeastern Traditional Direct Entry

    I believe that NU considers you a graduate student from day 1 of the entire program, so you'll apply for the FAFSA as a graduate student. I would double-check with the financial aid office to be sure. I finally got my call back yesterday. Accepted into FNP :) Such a relief! Still sending out good vibes for those who are still waiting to hear.

    Northeastern Traditional Direct Entry

    So my interview turned into a phone interview due to the weather yesterday. I think it went pretty well, similar to everyone else it was pretty conversational. I just dislike phone interviews in general, I always feel like I'm not saying enough to really "wow" the other person. I'm also nervous now seeing that other people heard back for acceptance so soon after their interview. The email I received today said I would hear back around the beginning of March. I feel like this is the most stressful part yet...ughh. :***:Fingers crossed for everyone else who has interviews coming up

    Northeastern Traditional Direct Entry

    @faith2014 I'm going to my interview this Thursday. I hope they don't cancel due to the "wintry mix" that's in the forecast. I just want to get this done

    Cherrierri: May 1 is what I saw too. However it looks like class scheduling opens March 15 so maybe the sooner we make the deposit, the sooner you get to schedule classes? Also has anyone talked to financial aid? I'm trying to figure out how to do the FAFSA to cover this summer and next fall. And how to do the FAFSA for this undergrad ABSN and graduate direct entry programs. Haven't made my decision yet!
