    USAGPAN 2021

    @Ryan Sellahcs I’m not sure what you mean about the criteria for a preceptor? I know two people who are currently in phase I of USAGPAN. They’ve been a tremendous help with setting my expectations and giving firsthand feedback about the program/application process!

    That’s a great question as far as your BSN GPA. I interpreted it as nursing-specific courses but your situation is different than mine. I’m sure either the program director or the Baylor liaison can answer your question!

    @Ryan Sellahcs Good luck to you! Let’s keep in touch on the thread with our progress! @HowdyHowdy I’m taking the ICCC chem course now and it’s a good amount of work but the course does well in making sure students grasp the information. There is no lab component so that’s nice. The tests are proctored and the student is responsible for securing a proctor and submitting the paperwork to have their proctor approved. I recommend renting the book (it’s only available through ICCC bookstore) and there is a required $42 online homework subscription- just FYI. If you are a veteran or a military spouse, you will enjoy in-state tuition which is about half the cost of nonresident rates! In full disclosure, I heard back from the program director about this course and he wrote, “This course would work, but I would suggest to take a graduate level course in order to set yourself apart from other applicants and to make yourself more competitive.” I’m taking my GRE at the end of the year and I plan to use Magoosh to prepare. I’ve heard great things about it! -By the time I commission, I’ll have 16 months ICU time. -I have a 4.0 BSN GPA and a 3.7(ish) science GPA. These are the two GPA’s I was asked to provide when I spoke with the program director about whether or not I am a competitive applicant. -I was active duty army for 6 years and my husband is still on active duty. We are a military family through and through! My kids love telling dinner guests that they are “army brats” -GRE is TBD I plan on contacting a recruiter in January to get my packet started. I called my nearest AMEDD recruiter last month (August 2019) and he felt it was too early to get started. I agree with him but I wanted to plant a seed for when the time comes p.s. We are stationed at Ft. Sill and my husband has been an instructor at DCC since it’s inception in 2016. If you have any questions about DCC, please ask! There are previous USAGPAN threads with a lot of information about what DCC is- I recommend starting there

    @antsrt4 I didn’t submit an application this year for the 2020 cohort- I’m applying for the FY 2021 cohort How about you? I’m planning on taking the GRE in late November/early December!

    USAGPAN 2021

    This thread is super early but I want to create a spot for USAGPAN 2021 applicants to share our journey! I’m mostly posting this thread now to spread the word about Iowa Central Community College’s Intro to Organic and Biochem online course - CHM 130. This option was a lifesaver (read: time and money saver) for me and I have to pay it forward. I checked with the Baylor liaison and the course fulfills the chemistry requirement. The only prerequisite is Intro to Chemistry I. I hope this helps someone and I’m looking forward to the upcoming application year!

    AB1021, I'm sorry you are feeling such disappointment, I really am. I know how it feels to be in your position and as much as you try to prepare for the worst, it still stings- a lot. The silver lining is that you're not completely denied from the program so there is still a chance you can be accepted. Best of luck to you and big hugs.

    I think there is always a chance! It is free to apply so there's no harm in doing so. I have heard that the GPA's in the fall class are more competitive than the spring. If you don't get in this time- keep trying! Good luck :)

    Some of my prerequisites are still in progress. I think that was my downfall.
