Thank you for responding, I couldn't find any student who are applying or went there!  I do have a few questions if you don't mind.

1. How is your experience so far?

2. Is the program hard to get into?

3. How many student was in your acceptance class?

4. How often do you practice in the sim lab?

5. How many days you go to clinical and the length?

6. What is a day like? have the day at school etc? and how many days you go on campus for class?

7. Was your classes like this pdf?

Hope you are able to answer these it would be helpful.

I have applied for this program, to start May 2020. I have been wondering how long I should expect for an admission decision to come or what their process is. Their website is not very thorough. Does anyone know to which staff I should reach out to check on my application status?

yes the website is very vague and when you call the answers are the same for the most part. 
Couple weeks ago I was told right before thanksgiving. yesterday I called to see if there is any update and was told they will meet up last Tuesday in November which is right before thanksgiving. 

I really hope I get in and this wait is killing me!!!

The only response I have gotten so far by email is "we have your application". So if they meet right before Thanksgiving, then it will most likely be after that week when we hear anything. I hope I get in too. It's the program that I most want to go to, and don't want to have to apply to any more schools. Plus, if I get in I need time to make a lot of life changes before it starts. Best of luck to you!

I agree, definitely want to get in there even though I live an hour away. I will keep you all posted if I get any other information and I hope you can too. Good luck as well!

1. It's new, so they are still in the process of working out kinks within the program. But the experience has been a challenging one. WIth already being a nurse it's different from a traditional program.

2. As of now no, long as you meet the requirements

3. Close to 30

4. No simulation as of now

5. Clnical is at the end of the program the 3rd and 4th semester, weekends only for 12 hours.

6. First semester is one day a week, 2nd semester is two days a week, 3rd semester is 3 days a week, and 4th semester is 1 day a week. It's set up like a normal college classroom, with virtual live instructor for lecture 

 

7. i can't open PDF!

I did not receive acceptance until a month prior to the programming starting
