  1. For all those applicants out there...

    I am from the south central area of Pa, approx 1 hour south of Harrisburg. I am mostly interested in Drexel because the local hospital is one of their clinical sites but am applying to 4 schools. I am encouraged by your post because my stats are simi...
  2. For all those applicants out there...

    Snookie, Congratulations!!! Just curious, I see that you are from Pa. Are you attending a school in Pa? I am also from Pa and am going through the application process now.
  3. CRNA Questions

    As far as the GRE vs MAT, look at each schools requirements. Several schools in Pa like Drexel and Villanova accept either one. Good luck!
  4. MAT prep

    The schools that I am looking into accept either the MAT or the GRE for acceptance into their programs. I can take the MAT for less money and only have to travel 10 miles from my home versus traveling 150 miles to take the GRE.
  5. MAT prep

    I am scheduled to take the MAT in August. I have a couple of study books that I have been using. Does anyone recommend any books or programs to help prepare ? Thanks!!!!
  6. Have you heard of anyone being accepted.....

    When I spoke with Lew, he said that I could apply in the late fall but would not be interviewed until I was halfway through my spring semester (my graduating semester). This was last year in spring of 2006 that he told me that information. Maybe Drex...
  7. Have you heard of anyone being accepted.....

    When I was looking into applying to Drexel, Lew Bennet told me that I could apply but could not be interviewed until I was approx 6 weeks into my last semester of my BSN. If I would be offered a position in the class, it would be contingent on my gra...
  8. Need some info about Weekend Option

    I work weekend option Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12 hour nights. I really like it because I have been going for my BSN and working weekends has really allowed me to have flexibility with my classes. Now that I have graduated this spring, I have thou...
  9. Online courses or not...

    Not sure where you are located but Penn State has an on line program called "world campus". It can be accessed through their website psu.edu. I know that they have an organic chemistry class because I was thinking about taking it. I have taken severa...
  10. New RN Grad, need advice

    I am looking at my syllabus for my classes this semester and yes, they are that stringent. I do not think that the offical grade point policy for PSU is that stringent but the branch campus that I attend, that is the grade point system for the BSN cl...
  11. New RN Grad, need advice

    I will be graduating from Penn State this spring and their grade point system is the same as the one that you have listed. In my experience, that is pretty much the standard anymore.
  12. "Funny Codes"?

    This is not quite a code but the patient came very close. A 40ish man came to our ER c/o not feeling right. He looked very pale so the intake nurse sent hom right through to the ER. I normally do not work there but was helping out as they were extrem...
  13. Name hospital and salary--everywhere

    By the Mason Dixon line in Pa/Md. I have been an RN for 10 years in critical care and work weekend nights. Base salary + WE night diff + WE incentive pay = ~40 to 42/hr depending on if charge of unit.
  14. Excela Health

    Thanks, I appreciate the info. I actually know 3 people from my unit who attended the program but they attended before Excela Health assumed the program. Unfortunately they have all taken positions out of the area and I have lost contact with them. I...

    I have a question for anyone who has or is attending the Excela Health Program in Latrobe, Pa. On the website for Excela Health and the website for the university supporting the program there is no mention of needing the GRE or the MAT. Does anyone k...
