Hi! I'm looking at applying for the ABPNN at U of R. Does anyone know what GPA, major, age, and experiences they are looking for. I completed all the pre-req's and I'm graduating in Dec 14'. I haven't been able to find anyone that was willing to share their background info who already has been accepted in the program! Any details would be GREAT!!

I am also interested in this program. It has the reputation of being one of the top nursing programs in the country. Some statistics would be nice if anyone is in the program or has gone to an information session.

Hey everyone,

I am also applying for the ABPNN as well. For the ABPNN, the lady told me you need at least 2.8 and the AMPNN is a 3.5. Just a heads up one of the advisors called me to set up a phone interview this wednesday =), mainly cause I'm coming from Cali, so exciting, lil nervous but ill take the time to practice an breathe. Good Luck to you all :-)

Thanks so much!!!

Good morning guys

I just had my phone interview with one of the faculty. It was a very nice and comfortable interview. what she asked was

1) how did you go from _______ to nursing?

2) why nursing?

3) what makes you a good fit for our program?

4) do you plan on working while enrolled as a student?

5) what healthcare experiences do you have?

6. Tell me about your experiences with nursing/ clinical and life experiences?

7. How do you handle stress?

8. Why U of R?

9. What are the three characteristics of a nurse?

10. What skills and attributes you can bring as a nurse?

I also asked her things about the program, fin aid etc and she was very nice and I think you will do very fine and I got a little nervous but I gave it my all. My interviewer also said that she is going to send the interview to the committee and they would either call/send a letter by the end of January.

Good luck to you allylyn and to everyone and please let me know how it goes :-)

Also the interviewer will ask do you work best in groups, alone, notecards, but that should come fairly simple

I just finished my interview and it went really well. The lady was extremely nice and she asked almost all the questions that you said she'd ask. I can't wait until January now!

OMG that sounds really awesome, I am glad yours went well, yaayyy now on to the wait. We're that much closer to our future careers. I'm glad they accept students three times year. Also while I was crazy researching, U of R is ranked among the top nursing programs in the country. Hopefully well become classmates and best of luck to you :-).

Hey all. It's really exciting to hear about all of your interviews. I applied for the ABPNN as well! The online progress report still says they don't have all of my documents so I'm kind of anxiously waiting for the next step. Still prepping for the interview though. I'm excited

I am planning on applying for September 2015 admission into the ABPNN at U of R as well! I decided to check on here to see where everyone else is on the application process and I haven't even sent my application in yet! This definitely makes me nervous because people are already getting phone interviews. I still have to get my letters of reference and all my documents sent in. I just wanted to ask you guys if you still think I have a chance? I know lots of people apply to this program because of how well respected it is and I already feel that I am behind. The deadline to apply March 1st so I was really surprised to see that people were already getting interviews!

They got interviews for the January or May 2015 start. The program has 3 start dates: January, May I think, and September of 2015. I am applying for the September start cohort and, yes, our deadline is in March.

Hey everyone,

I'm so happy to hear people are getting interviews for U of R! I applied for the AMPNN also, but my account says that they still haven't received my documents too :/ I called them two times, and they said that they have my application but just haven't inputted it yet and that they would input it by that Monday (I called on a Friday). It's been over a week since my last call, and I really anxious that they haven't still put me into the system. I applied a few days before the deadline.

IshEatsOats have you heard anything on your application?

No, I still haven't heard anything Zebra. It's really nerve racking and disconcerting that there is so little communication from admissions. I'm going to give them until this Monday before I attempt contact again though. Hopefully Ms. Kita will want to have a lot done before Thanksgiving and my status will have updated or at least return my email.

Alright! So my online app status has been updated so they have all of my materials. I should hopefully hear more this upcoming week.

Omg, I am so nervous for my interview! :nailbiting:
