Disagree here in Georgia. Augusta University's CNL program has a high placement rate for new graduates and many are fast-tracked to a charge nurse role based on their program. As with any school, its reputation plays a role. If they consistently crank out well trained nurses, that speaks for something. If they are a joke of a program and crank out nurses who are completely lost, you may have a more difficult time getting hired.
When do people have to pay deposits to confirm they are going to Vandy? I am waitlisted but after checking with Emory and Duke, Vandy is looking like a good option for me since it is totally billed at the graduate level. (And cheaper and shorter). Anyway, I have paid a deposit at Emory but class starts in May so I'm kind of in a bind and would like to know from Vandy.
FNP is very behind from what I can gather. Everyone I talk to that has applied for FNP is still waiting. I know a few that have been accepted but they are in the minority at the moment. Hopefully it is soon, the anticipation is killing me. What other programs did you apply for? I've heard back from Emory about ABSN+MSN for FNP and I am waiting to hear back from Duke about the same program. I was told we should know the first week in March for Duke, so just wondering where you heard 2/18 from.
Last time I called, they said they were still working on the preliminary evaluations and haven't even finished sending out acceptance letters yet. Granted, this was regarding FNP so I can't speak for other specialities. But, from the way they made it sound, very few people have heard back about FNP so far.
DUKE, VANDERBILT, or EMORY.
I have read online that Vandy is #10 for FNP, Duke is #13, and Emory is #21. Don't know if that is true or not but I am interested in hearing everyone's case for each school.
Anybody heard anything about FNP yet? I'm getting anxious lol I'm ready to know what my options are and if I get to visit Nashville soon or not! Haha. I just hate calling, just in case they are taking notes about who annoys and bugs them the most
