I graduated from MUSC's accelerated BSN program this past May and will be starting the DNP this fall. I will say this, we have had loads of students who did NOT have a lick of hospital-type experience. We had people from all walks of life: military, older individuals, some who were LPNs, master graduates in other fields, EMTs, etc etc. Musc would prefer that you have experience (either volunteer or work related), but they like to see consistency. So your volunteer or work experience doesn't have to necessarily be health related. They generally want someone who can be the total package, which is why there isn't a perfect cookie cutter idea of what characteristics and experiences one should have.
Do your best on your applications, put your best foot forward and present yourself in the best light. Good luck to all. This is an exciting time!
Edited to add:
1) Admissions for the Spring are generally much more easier to get into than the Fall start.
2) For anyone who's close by MUSC and wants to keep track, here is the website to do that: [COLOR=black]https://mainweb-v.musc.edu/applicationstats/nrstatus.htm You can only view the chart if you are using one of MUSC's computers. You can go to the MUSC library during normal business hours (if you don't already work there and have a badge to get in after hours) and use the computers in the lobby to check. This kept me sane while waiting for official notification. [/COLOR]
