I'm probably in the minority here regarding programs, but I'm applying to a few Acc BSN programs, and a few entry level MSN programs. I just finished a B.S. at University of Oregon, so all my prereqs are out of the way (phew)! I already took the GRE, and I'm debating whether or not I should take the TEAS. Only a few schools require it, but they're not schools I want to pass on (Samuel Merritt and CSU LA are the only two on my list I know of). Of course, application deadlines are all over the place! I just submitted the ELMN application for Johns Hopkins, and I'm working on UCSF at the moment, which is due Sept 1. Everything else is in the future, and I'm not gonna worry about those until they get here!
For now, I have a full time job in a medical office, but I won't be doing much medical stuff (I'm an admin). I hope it'll at least give me a good look into the field, because the office employs both NPs and MDs. If I don't get in to a school on the first round, I'll look into getting a certification, either CNA or phlebotomy.
I'm a bit nervous for all the applications. Most schools I'm applying to are very competitive, and I only have a 3.49 GPA (cumulative, but I think my science and prereq GPA is higher). I'm also fresh out of undergrad, so I don't have much experience. I did work as a pharmacy tech for a while, and I volunteered as triage for a free clinic. I figure I should try for a bunch now (since my goal is to eventually work as an NP) because the programs are there. If I don't get in the first round, I'll rake up more experience and try again.
Good luck to all!!
