    I haven't received my Vandy Net ID yet! Should be soon 😄 I spoke with Leslie Hopkins the AGPCNP program director last Friday and this Fall appears to all be online for the part-time cohort, one intensive/block weekend in Spring 2022, Summer 2022 is all online, 2 block weekends for Fall 2022, none in Spring 2023 due to an online course and then clinicals, and then 1-2 visits for Summer 2023 depending on if you go to Nashville in person for presentations and pinning! Obviously things can change, but the program appears to be changing and students seem satisfied! This is for the direct entry (already have a BSN), part-time group.

    Vanderbilt 2021 Direct Entry

    The website stated approximately 50 are accepted into the PMHNP track. Not sure how it's broken up between non-nursing, ASN entry and BSN entry though. I've officially accepted my spot for the part-time direct entry AGPC-NP track and paid my deposit. The other two schools I applied to have either rejected me or have taken too long to respond and time's a-tickin'! I spoke with the track's program director today and she put me at ease about the sequence of the courses + what travel to expect. Students who started the direct entry programs last August haven't even been to campus yet because of covid and future visits have been slashed in half already in hopes of having students come visit again when things settle down. A lot of increased student satisfaction has been found by having everything virtually. It sounds like Vanderbilt truly adapted well.

    Vanderbilt 2021 Direct Entry

    On the admitted students page, there are different dates for different milestones. Right now, if you are admitted, you could claim all your vusn email if you accept the admission decision. March 1, more info comes out regarding the different paths. Not sure what that entails exactly, but more info is always appreciated! 🙂

    VANDERBILT PRE-SPECIALTY ENTRY 2021

    Mine still says Submitted, but a yellow bar at the top of your application checklist appears when an admission decision letter is posted. The email we received after applying said all correspondence would be through email, so it is a little confusing! I am direct entry, though, and got in to AGPCNP and this was how I found out on Monday. Hope you hear soon too, @txallie

    For those who got admitted into the direct entry pathway, even for parttime, and actually attended from OMTA... Did you have to travel to Vanderbilt in Fall 2020 for the block weekends? Just wondering if they’re gonna expect us to travel from our different areas of the country for these block weekends this fall due to covid. I’ll be hailin’ from Oregon!

    Long shot but maybe for current students... would there be travel to campus the first semester in the parttime path for the AGPC? I only ask since covid is still around. Anyone know about the block schedules this fall yet? Website said it’d post schedules in March, but maybe someone would know now. I got some interesting news from my OB about my birth plan and now I may consider deferral for 6 months. But if the first semester is all online, I think I can manage.

    Direct Entry can be broken down into two years. I got into the AGPCNP program and got approved to do the 2 year parttime route!
