    Quitting the StaRN program?

    I'm in my first of immersion at a hospital that has a 50/50 partnership with HCA. So far it has been everything I wanted. Classroom experience and educator support & floor shadowing/orienting with a preceptor. I have 13 weeks total of orienting on the floor and as of right now I think I'll be ready to work alone at the end. I'm on a Medsurge floor transitioning to PCU, we are 4:1 most days, sometimes 3:1. It may be an anomaly but so far my floor seems well staffed and healthy!

    california license by endorsement

    Hi, I got registered in NY and got my license endorsed in CA and didnt need any additional classes. This thread helped me a lot when it felt like my license would never come. 10/7- I applied in CA w livescan prints 11/8 around a month later I checked and it had my license number upper right corner instead of pending. I had started checking every day and really wasn't expecting it to happen so fast as the BON website was quoting 1012 weeks, Good luck!

    Hi there, I'm interested in applying, ideally L&D/Mother baby but sounds like it might not be open this round? Has anyone made contact with a human or heard about dates? Thanks!

    Columbia School of Nursing MDE 2018

    Hi everyone! Long time lurker with a lot of questions. I'll admit I did not fully understand the application and only applied to MDE, my goal is to apply to DNP FNP concentration, does anyone have an idea of how challenging it is to apply and advance to those programs? If not- what kind of other programs would one consider after the MDE 15 months if their ultimate goal is FNP? Secondly, I think I missed the financial aid deadline, I filled out my FAFSA but was again confused about the additional application. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Can anyone give advice on how to differentiate what they included in their Goal Statement versus ther short background essays? Should I include everything I want to say in the goal statement since it is "required" and the others are not? Or should I try not to overlap and have unique info in each essay? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    What format did people use to submit transcripts? If electronic what address did you send them to? Thanks!

    Thanks for the response! So you are saying quality over quantity? ie. perhaps in my case it is better to get SOLID letters from my current work supervisors etc versus a mediocre professor (academic) letter?

    I am taking my statistics final tomorrow and it has been a crazy summer (took Micro too & working 2 jobs), I'm looking at a C most likely. What grades have people got in their pre-reqs? I'm hoping maybe I can make up for it on my GRE quant scores. Also, I have a few professors I could ask for a letter of rec but nothing stellar. Do you guys think it's better to check off all the boxes (professional, volunteer, educational) for letters of rec or have really strong ones? I'm applying to FNP!

    UCSF MEPN 2018

    Hi @TangoDeux! I'd love to hear about everyone's backgrounds & share tips. I am applying to the FNP speciality. I have a social studies background and got a 3.6 in undergrad. Since college I have served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala and most recently worked at a community health center as a health educator (where I got to work with FNPs and learn to love their lives! Haha) Now I am taking pre requisites at night and working as a health educator at UCSF part time. Im nervous and would love any tips/advice people have! Thanks in advance

    Hi @lescoffeebeans! I would love to ask you a few questions about your acceptance to FNP, tops for application, did you end up going to UCSF? If so how was your first year? I'd really appreciate it as I intend to apply this fall. Thanks so much!
