I had mine on Thursday, it went well. Basic questions, why ruh, why nursing, an ethical question and just telling them about yourself. Pretty laid back. Make sure you have a few questions of your own to ask them and good luck to everyone! Just a waiting game now-Brendan

Hey guys! I am already accepted to the Summer 2013 program (I got waitlisted for Spring and didn't get in) but would love to make a Facebook page or something when everyone starts to find out if they were accepted! Keep us posted and good luck!

Sorry for the late response, my interview was great. I will say if was more fun that i anticipated, so just keep it cool. Also, be sure you have 1 or 2 questions, cos that really kept us flowing. It was good over all.

Well, i was interviewed by the head of admissions....she didn't ask abt the CNL, thou i prepared for it! I believe it is just random, and they all just have their "joker" questions.

I had my interview today. The staff is very nice and the interview is very relaxed and conversational. I can't wait until march 7 when we find out about our admission decision.

Renee, sounds like you were interviewed by Dr. Hicks. He's the director of the GEM program and a strong advocate of the CNL aspect of our program. His perspective and that of the GEM program is that we're being trained to NOT be just staff nurses who push meds and change IVs but rather critical thinkers and leaders. He teaches our Socialization class and loves nursing theory. If you get in - make sure you take this class with him (there's usually 2 sections - the other one is taught by someone else). Good luck to all!

Stacey, I remember you (from the Rush Gem Spring 2013 thread) trying to decide between starting at Depaul this past January or waiting until Summer 2013 for the GEM. It's good to see that you decided on Rush :) It really is such a plus to be associated with a medical center. Definitely, do start a FB page once you all start getting your acceptance letters. We did that for our cohort and it was such a nice way to get to know one another before the program started. I feel like we're a closer group because of it. We've just finished our 7th week and it's amazing how fast you form close friendships. Good luck!

Anita,

Thanks so much : )

I loved him! He was so nice and very interesting to speak with. I did review the CNL duties and also jumped on and reviewed some of his research projects too- pretty cool stuff! I love the focus on enhancing healthcare while decreasing medical errors.

Now all that's left is the 2 week waiting period : )
