University of San Francisco PMHNP or FNP Fall 2020

Hello Fellow Applicants,

Just wanted to start a thread and see who is applying for The University of San Francisco's PMHNP or FNP doctorate programs for Fall 2020.

I am applying to to the PMHNP program. I am currently living in Texas but will relocate if I get in. I am an ED nurse at this time but really fell in love with Psychiatry over the years.

This is my first time applying.

Good luck!

Hi fellow applicant! I too have applied for the DNP/PMHNP program at USFca for Fall 2020. I made the decision to take plunge and push my career further. I finished their MSN/CNL program last Winter. The school (and faculty) gave me a lot of leeway regarding how to put together my clinical and thesis presentations.

I'm a fiercely independent learner and like to dictate the parameters of my study. I live/work in the Bay Area and actually work in hospital (psych) with some of my instructors-a big benefit. However, USF comes with a hefty price tag so be prepared to open your purse! It's long-term investment that will pay well both professionally and financially.

Interestingly, the school called me several times to follow up on my application. My hunch is that their admissions may have taken a drop with the pandemic raging away. Good time to apply!

I haven't gotten any calls from the schools, just emails suggesting I should apply. I think my application is strong but we will see. Good luck to you.

So, It's been 8 weeks since my application was submitted and have not heard anything back. I reached out to graduate admissions and have not gotten an email back. Has anyone else heard anything yet?

Yes. I got an accept/decline letter last month. That seems odd you have reached out and heard nothing. I would certainly contact them.
