Hi everyone!

I'm starting this new thread for those interested in applying to UC Davis's Master's Entry Program Summer 2021 program. Hoping this will be a space where we all can ask questions/connect.

Hope you are all staying healthy!

Fabulous! Thank you!

I'm starting to fill out the experiences part in NursingCAS. Are y'all just bullet-pointing the description or writing in complete sentences? I'm assuming this is similar to what they would see in your resume

Yup, I'm doing bullet points similar to a resume. How is everyone's SoP coming along?

Hi, can someone clarify the application process for me? I'm a bit confused.

From my understanding applicants initially apply through NursingCAS and then get invited to apply again through Davis' Graduate School?

So we apply twice? We have to write two statements of purposes?

I'm a bit confused as well, but it does appear that you apply twice. Once for the nursing program and if you are accepted, you apply for graduate studies.

What I'm more confused about is that there are people in the 2020 thread replying that they just received a rejection letter over the last few days. Wouldn't the 2020 cohort already be one month in? I thought classes started early June?

we were the waitlisted group- I was offered the waitlist position in late January. They don’t tell you what number you are on the list but rather “a group of candidates that are then looked over & selected once a position opens” The waitlist position stays until the beginning of the semester incase positions open. I was then told last week that I had been officially rejected. It’s basically a year long process waiting to see if you have a chance. I wish I could apply again but I don’t have the public speaking requirement, that’s a new one since last year. Good luck guys!!

Hello everyone, I’m applying to this program as well as UCSF. I wish December-March will hurry up and get here, but I know it’s in the universe’s hands now. Best of luck to everyone!

Hi Monica! Sorry, I am a bit confused, did you apply without the public speaking requirement for the 2020 cohort? I didn't take that class however I took something equivalent. I was also part of the waitlisted group for this year's cohort and received my rejection letter a few weeks ago. I ended up reapplying for next year!

I applied last year without the public speaking, as it wasn’t part of the required classes that needed to be met! 🙂

If you don't mind, could you tell me where you got this information from? 🙂

I am a bit worried now since I reapplied to the program without the public speaking 😕

It looks like the last prerequisite on the UC Davis MEPN website is listed as "Communication (must include group, verbal and written principles)". The "group" portion of this prerequisite is satisfied by a public speaking course. I'm not sure if there are other courses that would satisfy this or not. Technically, you need three courses to satisfy the communication prerequisite. One for group (e.g. public speaking course), one for verbal (e.g. interpersonal communication) and one for written (e.g. University writing). At least that's what I did.

Hey everyone! I wanted to ask whether you have received a confirmation email from the school of nursing after you submitted your application. My application was verified almost 2 weeks ago and haven't received a confirmation email from UCD. Wondering if any of you received it or not?

Thanks!

I submitted my apps on 7/20 and did not receive a confirmation from UCD either.

I see where I was confused now! Public speaking falls under the verbal communication requirement and some schools offer equivalent classes that UCD nursing accepts. We can see some of those under the sample prerequisites section. I got worried for a little bit, but thank you for letting me know 🙂

I used assist.org and UC Davis’s sample prerequisites, which is linked below their list of prerequisites, to match my classes to the requirements. I took these courses at Sierra College in Rocklin.

Under communication prerequisites it notes group, verbal *and written principles. I included a screen shot of it stating public speaking as part of the verbal, not group requirement. It's also separated on NursingCAS when you fill out the app, it gives you an opportunity to fill in 3 different courses for the overall communication requirement. If you submitted your app without filling in a public speaking, or something similar, you must have opted out for assigning a course. I’m unsure if this will still place you in the running for the program because from my understanding, the change from last year and how the prerequisites were laid out, it seemed like you needed 3 different classes. I never actually contacted the program so I very well could be wrong.

Hope this helps!
