kc03's Latest Activity

  1. I know that if you don't pass the first time you have to pay to test again, and it delays potential job start date, but are there any other negative consequences of not passing the first time? Do employers or grad schools look at how many times you took it?
  2. Does anyone know if there are resources to practice Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) other than Kaplan's CAT programs?

    2016 UPenn BSN/MSN Applicants

    I got in too! So happy :) Did anyone receive financial aid/scholarship offers along with their acceptance letter? I wonder when we hear about that. Does the "Program Cost" of $109,100 listed on their tuition website refer to the cost for the total BSN/MSN or just the BSN? Link here: Accelerated

    Yale GEPN 2016

    Does anyone know what exactly the curriculum redesign entails? Is the program definitely being shortened or has it not been decided yet? Thanks!
  12. Ohh okay, so it's possible to put both "1st yr graduate/professional" for "What will your grade level be when you begin the 2016-2017 school year?" and "2nd bachelor's degree" for "What degree or certificate will you be working on when you begin the 2016-2017 school year?" I had thought that sounded contradictory because if I indicate it's a 2nd bachelor's then it can't be a graduate program. Thanks so much for your help!
  13. I questions I thought I'd need to answer differently are: "What will your grade level be when you begin the 2016-2017 school year?" If the school awards a BSN (i.e. UPenn) wouldn't I put "Attended college before/1st yr. undergrad"? Versus if they don't award a BSN and just award a masters degree (i.e. Yale's GEPN program) wouldn't I put "1st year graduate"? Are you saying that I should put "5th year undergrad" for all schools? The question "What degree or certificate will you be working on when you begin the 2016-2017 school year?". Isn't UPenn's program is considered a "2nd bachelor's degree", while Yale's program is considered a "Graduate/Professional Degree"?
  14. Hi all, I'm applying to direct entry NP programs and am confused about FAFSA financial aid applications. Does anyone know if I can submit one version of the FAFSA to one school and another version to a different school? Some of the direct entry nursing schools I am applying to are considered undergrad for the first portion [uPenn] while others are considered graduate school (masters level) [Yale]. Thus, I would need to answer some questions differently depending on the school, but I can only respond with one answer on the form. Is the FAFSA only for need-based scholarship and loans, or also for merit-based scholarships? Or are merit-based scholarships/awards not based on info submitted on FAFSA? Thanks!
