Hi All,

I didn’t see a thread for Umich’s Primary Care DNP programs for fall of 2020 and was wondering if anyone applied before the early application deadline of Jan. 15th. Anyway... just a thread for us to enjoy the anticipation of the admission decision wait game together ☺️ Good luck to everyone!!

Hi BW2020,

I applied for the early January 15th deadline for the MSN FNP program at U of M! Still have not heard anything back. Thanks for starting the thread and much luck to you!

@Californiagirl091188I also am waiting for a response back! I competed the early deadline.  I was told they would invite some applicants for an additional in person interview if they felt it was needed?

Hello, everyone. I'm a current DNP student at Michigan. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Don't worry about not hearing anything. They won't contact you until you get your acceptance letter.

@mcjobsonThanks for the heads up! I wasn’t sure if it was a good thing or bad not getting a call back for the in-person interview.

Hi @mcjobson thank you for letting us know! If you don't mind answering, do you find it possible to work during the program? If so full-time or just part- time? Also I know U of M finds clinical placement, how has that process been?

Thank you ! 🙂

You can definitely work full-time or part-time. You just need to decide how much of a life outside of work/school you want. I suggest you try to work and see how it goes. If you find it too difficult, you can always cut back on hours or quit. If you want to get involved in things like MICNP, the Student-Run Free Clinic, research, etc. It might be best to leave your job.

Here is my take. We are in a unique situation as NP students as compared to other graduate students. We already have a degree and are working professionals, for the most part. This leads to us wanting to focus on work and school. However, you are matriculating into one of the greatest schools in the world. I suggest you stop working (if financially feasible) and take advantage of all the University of Michigan has to offer you.

As far as the clinical placement goes, I'm in the adult-gero acute care program. For me, the placement has been fine. It is much better than trying to find placements on your own.

If any of you want to get in touch with a UM NP student and have them as a mentor, you can email the Michigan Council of Nurse Practitioners at UMSN (MICNP). They will help you with anything you need while you transition into graduate school. Here is the email: UMSN.MICNP@umich.edu

Hello everyone,

Well I’m glad that we have this platform to converse. I was constantly looking at my email to make sure I didn’t receive an in person interview invitation, also not knowing if it was positive or negative thing. I’m pretty sure we won’t hear much of anything (if not offered an in person interview) until mid March... so I just need to relax and enjoy the wait game ride. So much easier said than done ☺️
 

@mcjobson thank you so much for your response. It’s so helpful to hear from a current student. When I attended an informational session, the student ran free clinic sounded so awesome to me. I currently live about 1.5hr away from U-Mich and would hope to still work full time while commuting to attending a part time program (if given the opportunity) so it gives me hope to hear it’s possible.

I applied for the CNM Fall program and received an in person interview for next Saturday. Not sure if it’s a bad or good thing!

@nelsonmeg77, the CNM program is more competitive than the NP programs. However, if you are getting an in-person interview, you are probably in. They do the interviews to ensure that they are making the right choice in choosing you. Just come prepared to answer questions about why you're choosing Michigan, why CNM, why a DNP, what do you see yourself doing in 5-10 years, etc. Make sure you know the role of a DNP vs a PhD. The interview is more like a conversation where you get to know each other, so be prepared to ask them some questions too. Good luck and welcome to Michigan. Go Blue!

If anyone has questions about the interview process I can give you some pointers, but it's been two years since I went through the process and it may have changed.
