Is it true that the whole program is 2 years (6 semesters)? 3 semesters for the PreSpecialty year and 1 year for the Specialty year?

I got in for Psych and this is very very big for me! The Scholarship offer was also pretty tempting so now I’m Super grateful! It’s all narrowed down to Penn , Yale and Vanderbilt! For those in similar predicaments we can trade ideas in the Facebook group! Happy to meet you all and congratulations !!

I’m also in psych! Did you get the full tuition offer? I got 10k but the pricetag of the program is kinda scary..

Yes, for most specialties. PMHNP is 6 semesters.  There are a couple that take longer. Midwifery is definitely 30 months. And the dual specialties are longer.

I was accepted for pre-specialty FNP! 

Hey @hootoFNP

I'm assuming you went to UVA based on your username? Congratulations on your acceptance to the FNP program! I'm currently a 3rd year at UVA looking to apply for next year's cycle of applicants and was wondering if you had any advice in terms of the application? Assuming you went to UVA, did you apply while in school or did you work for few years and apply?

This may be a silly question, but does anyone happen to know what month/year graduation would be for the prespecialty cohort starting this fall? Specifically FNP?

Hi all! Does anyone (especially current students) have a list of Scholarships that alternate entry students can apply for? I’ve submitted applications to all of the Scholarship suggestions in the VUSN Financial Aid email. Love this program but I’m concerned about the loan debt. It looks like the HRSA scholarship has not been released yet.

Thank you for sending over these details! Do you know if you can still get the Scholarship if you defer admission for one year (similar to taking a year off)?

If you defer that would not be the same as taking a year off after enrolled. If you know now that you are going to defer your start date, wait and apply for the Fall 2021 cycle of the Nurse Corps Scholarship.

If you think that you will decide to defer after you apply then as soon as you decide to defer, inform Nurse Corps and pull your application out of  consideration.

You can reapply the following school year even if you pulled your application a previous year--this I know because I did it. I applied for fall 2018, defered my start date, pulled my app out of consideration for the scholarship, reapplied for fall 2019 and received the scholarship.

Hi! I am considering applying. When you say choose your job, is that out of certain options they provide? Or is it you choose the location and job and they have to approve it?
