Will do! I'm going to try to get in touch with her this week. Thanks!
Is anyone aware if they are conducting interviews for the ABSN program? I have heard that they do not always interview each applicant and was curious!
Hi @ElizaP12! I believe they do. This is what the email said:
BSN Second Degree applicants (and applicants not invited to interview for the MSN and PhD) will also be invited to interview. Applicants will be contacted between November 14, 2017 and January 31, 2018 to schedule an interview, if invited. Please note due to the high volume of applicants, we may not be able to offer an in person interview. The interviews will be approximately 30 minutes and held with an Associate Director within the admissions office at the School of Nursing. The interview is a great opportunity to learn more about the program, answer any questions you may have about, the nursing school, campus and the city.
Does anyone know how much the whole program is going to cost?
The BSN tuition costs roughly $100,000 but I'm not 100% sure what the cost of the MSN portion is.
Where on their website did you see this? I've been poking around and can't find it. I was told there would be decisions made before Christmas break.
Hey, does anyone know when FNP decisions will be made? I tried emailing but got no response..
Ohm108, MSN, NP, CNM
They sent out an e-mail a few days after application close explaining the deadlines and notification dates. If you haven't received it, check your spam folder.
@Vfalks Here you go! The total costs will be more to account for cost of living and such but just tuition is ~$100k https://www.nursing.upenn.edu/admissions/tuition-and-fees/accelerated-costs/
As far as decisions go, I know some applicants who apply to just the MSN portion will receive decisions before Christmas. From speaking with past applicants, everyone who applied to BSN/MSN programs got final decisions in early/mid-February. Hope this helps!
@Sb328 I'm assuming FNP applicants would hear back at the same time as everyone else in February but not totally sure since this is the first year they aren't conducting any interviews for this specialty.
There won't be FNP interviews this year so the notification date for FNP applicants will be the same as everyone else early Feb 2018 online where you submitted your application.
They are probably in the middle of reviewing applications. The e-mail from admissions asked us not to contact them until November 15th if we have any questions with regards to our applications so my guess is admissions won't be very responsive until after Nov 15th.
I don't remember if anyone already posted the e-mail we received from admissions with regards to deadlines and notifications so I will post again just in case some people didn't get it or it was sent to their spam folder

Please wait until November 15th to see if all application materials have been received. If the checklist states something is missing at that time, feel free to contact us. Please note it does not affect the applicant if admissions materials are missing from the application, as we attempt to give as much notice as possible to submit any missing items.
