  2. Passed CNRN today

    I told myself if I passed the CNRN exam I would create a post that detailed what I reviewed in preparation since it was so hard for me to find any recent info on the topic while I was trying to prepare. I used several resources and threw a lot of mon...
  3. CNRN - Just Passed!

    Congrats on attaining your CNRN! Can you please share what you studied to prepare? Or what the most valuable resource you used was? I completed the AANN review course, but with only the one practice test it's hard to know if I'm prepared or not. Tha...

    Hello! I will be attending UTMB for the accelerated program this summer. There is also a Facebook page for group if you want to check that out. I live in the Dallas area now so I'll be moving in the next couple months to Galveston.

  11. UTMB Accelerated Program Summer 2014

    Just got my acceptance email! I've been stalking this thread while waiting to hear back, to see if anyone else had heard anything more so I thought I should post that I heard. I am so happy it only took a couple weeks since even that was difficult to...
  12. UTMB Personal Statement

    I applied to the Bacc2 program, so it may be different, but I think the section on NursingCAS where you copy and paste the statement limits it to 700 words. I also noticed an option to attach a document, so maybe that's how you can write more? The i...
