    2019 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

    And I got HRSA so maybe I am in the wrong thread but I think maybe the whole thing has just gotten mixed in at this point.

    2019 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

    They ask for your bank account information and transfer the funds to you. You then have to prove that you used it to pay your loans. That’s my understanding from the several APRNs I know who’ve gotten it, anyway. And they did ask for my bank account info to make a transfer of funds so it seems right. I’ll report back when it’s in my account.

    2019 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

    I am a CNM/WHNP who provides buprenorphine at a FQHC; I have a DTI of 136%. I received a finalist notification for 75K a couple of weeks ago and a notification of award/service start date on Friday. The money has not been transferred into my account as of yet but I assume it is coming. This was my first year applying. I was Tier 1 in the substance use loan requirements. I don't think I would have gotten it through the other track. I didn't see any credit checks but I only checked one bureau.

    Yale GEPN 2016

    I answered them in order and I talked about what attracted me to Yale. Their questions really flowed with my essay style though so it worked for me. I had read through past years threads on here and saw that in past years people had to answer in order so I just did that to be safe. It worked to help me organize my writing. You should do whatever you think works best for you.

    Yale GEPN 2016

    I definitely think prior medical experience can help. My quant score was pretty bad. I can't remember what it was (I want to say 47th or 50th percentile) but I killed in verbal and writing and I got into every school I applied to. I would not give up yet. As was mentioned by my fellow GEPN, it is so much more than GRE.

    Yale GEPN 2016

    They don't really release it. I am a current GEPN and my classmates are some really impressive, wonderful people. Yale is very competitive (it's Yale, so yeah) BUT it is not all about GRE and grades. More important is who you are as a person--how passionate you are about nursing, what you've done in the past, and what you are going to bring to the table at Yale. The best advice I can give you, having been in your position a year ago, is to just do you. Spend a lot of time on your essay and resume/CV. Get good recommendations. Yale really looks at who you are as a big picture. They could easily fill their class with 4.0s and great GRE scores but they are looking for more than that. They really let in people that they think will add something to the APRN profession and the Yale community. Obviously I am not on the admissions committee but this is my takeaway from talking to faculty and other classmates.

    I'm sorry for giving incorrect information about that. My understanding was completely different. I am glad you posted cthomson

    Despite being in my 30s I am woefully short on grown up clothes.

    I may have possibly shopped. A lot. I have some online stuff coming and I'll send back what I don't like. I didn't go full suit because I don't like them but I did do some wool dresses and blazers.

    The only school I am applying to, anyway. :)

    So those of you who are applying to Columbia and Yale (or another program and Yale), are you just doing the Yale financial aid right now for FAFSA? Or both? I know there has been discussion about this, but I am just wondering exactly what everyone is doing. I may ask this question in the Columbia post as well, but I am thinking that this is the better place as this is the only school that's not 5th year undergraduate.

    I'm really thinking I did not get in or that I got wait listed, as I am seeing so many people with my speciality already notified of acceptance. It's not really surprising, as I wasn't feeling it after my interview, but I wish I had resolution. There are some other programs I feel a greater affinity for, and it is still bugging me. Ha ha! I don't like limbo so much.

    I do think that's an important point though because for some specialties finding preceptors can be difficult. However there is overlap anyway, correct? I mean, there's always going to be two classes doing clinicals regardless of whether they shorten the program. One class is just further along than the other. It will be interesting to see what they say to candidates during the interview days about how they are working this out. I'm not sure how I feel about it being shorter. As long as we leave the program as competent clinicians I don't really see it as a problem.

    No, Britt, that was so helpful! Thank you!
