    Anyone else have their interview in Portland for 11:30 on April 18th?

    I received an interview invite from Portland campus, as well!!! A little after 3pm. I could NOT believe it!! I was sitting next to my Grandmother, and I gasped in shock... I then sat there for a good minute or so with my jaw to the ground. She was like “What? What is it? Are you okay?” I honestly was so so surprised. Guys, never, EVER, give up!! I have come up against some major adversity in my life, when it would have been sooooo easy to give up. I have had to work my *** off to get here... which is why I was half expecting not to get an invite this year, and have to try again next time. I broke down in tears because I have worked so damn hard... it just felt good to get that validation. Even if I don’t get in once all is said and done, I have a fighting chance, and all I have done is bout for not for naught! I have FAILED classes. I have had to retake them. It has been years. If this is truly your passion... Do. Not. Give. Up. Allow time for growth, reflection, and building your strength and character. You will not be the same person who applies next time.

    The accelerated A&P during summer is the worst! I ended up retaking them. I’d only doing the summer ones if you had already taken them, and are going for a better grade. One class in 4 weeks is brutal. How long have you been a CNA at OHSU? Do you have your CNA 1 or CNA 2?

    Oh gosh, I don't know! My first inclination is that they won't allow it... but it can't hurt to ask! Let me know what you find out.

    Looks like the interviews are mid April... so I imagine we would hear something by mid March??? Agghh!
  9. It was the last day to do it, but I OFFICIALLY SUBMITTED MY APPLICATION TO OHSU!!!! Anyone else applying for this cohort? A little about me: I am an older, non-traditional student, single Mama with 8 and 13 year old boys! I currently hold a BA in Psych. I wanted to apply to the ABSN, however, my Statistics class is over 7 years old, and it was also a C. I will just have to retake it, if I end up needing to apply next year. This is also my very first application cycle. I feel like OHSU is definitely my top choice, but I will also be applying to Linfield, and possibly Concordia (only because they have an accelerated program, and seem to offer more start dates. Now the waiting begins!!!!
