Hi, my name is Mike. I'm opening this thread to connect with other people who are applying or have been accepted to the BSNExpress program at Villanova for Spring 2015. Feel free to share any thoughts and suggestions you might have and to ask questions. Hopefully this forum can serve as a way for us to get to know each other a bit prior to the start of the program.

Hi Mike! I sent in my application a few weeks ago, and received an email today about interviewing. Any other applicants out there?

Hi mike and peppymint! I just got notified yesterday of interview as well! Any idea on how long after interviews they might start making decisions? Also are either of you still taking classes? I am.

Did you apply anywhere else? I also applied to Jefferson Fact and Drexel Ace. Looking forward to chatting with you guys!

Hi Danielle and peppymint! I'm not sure how long after the interview that they'll let you know. I think it could be anywhere from 2-4 weeks depending on how often they review applicants.

I didn't apply anywhere else besides Nova. I checked out a bunch of other accelerated programs and was not impressed with any of them. Nova was worlds ahead of these other programs in terms of really preparing you for a nursing career, especially with their holistic approach. That's how I see it anyway. I'm taking classes right now too. I still have a biology, chemistry, patho, and religion course to complete. How about you?

Hey mdk! I'm finishing up A&P 2, have chem 2 in the fall, and developmental psych and pathophysiology still.

Are you from around the area? I'm from Montgomeryville!

Hey everyone! I also got an email for an interview and scheduled mine for August 26th! Does anyone know for sure how long after the interview they will let you know of their decision? Jefferson FACT and Nova are my top choices.

I am also still taking classes - finishing anatomy this year and nutrition and developmental psych in the spring semester. if i am accepted, i will take pathophys with nova online!

Hey everyone!

I have my interview this afternoon, any advice? I'm so nervous!

congrats! how did it go?

My interview is coming up as well! How did it go?

Has anyone been accepted yet?

Also... does anyone know how many students are accepted each year?

Hi everyone! I have my interview on Friday so would love to hear how they went!

I heard that they accept 80 students.

It went well! They really just tried to get to know me, and told me about the program. It's just a waiting game now. I was told that the admissions committee meets again in mid-September to review the applications, so the earliest I would hear anything would be mid-October. Good luck to you all!

Hi everyone! I intend on applying within the next few weeks! This is one of my number one choices for school. Do all of you live in PA? Also, are your interviews in person or by telephone? I reside in Michigan, so I would have to travel there…..which I have no problem with! Also, what do some of you have your Bachelors in? Just curious!

Also, I am currently enrolled to take one of my religion courses and I still need one after that. Stats I will take next semester and Patho if I am accepted!

Hey warriortac!

I live in PA - my interview is in person but maybe they would do over the phone or a skype interview if coming in person wasn't doable for you?

I have a BS in accounting - total career change! I graduated in 2009.

I've been waiting for this thread! I have an interview as well but my person is on vacation so I'm waiting to schedule one. I was planning on applying to Jefferson and Penn but I won't if I hear back from Villanova early enough. It really seems like a great program. My husband who worked at CHOP said that people gushed about Villanova nurses.

My BA is in health and society (aka public health) and I'll be starting my two religion courses and developmental psych on Monday.

Awesome! I have a Bachelors in Anthropology. I am more than willing to do an in-person interview; Even if I am out of state I think it is better for them to meet me in person, and for me to see the school and meet them. After you all applied how long did it take for you to hear about an interview? Do they interview everyone?

Any other interview updates? Mine is next week.

Hey warriortac, I'm not sure how many they tend to interview or the number who apply. I can't really say how long it took them to contact me after applying because I haven't submitted my app yet! Sooo what happened was that I applied to the alternate sequence program last year and didn't get in because I was mistaken about the classes I had to take. I resent my transcripts around June and started filling out another app then decide to put it on hold until I finished my summer class. Just around the time I finished they sent the email for the interview! I'm guessing they used my application from last year.

Also to the OP, I think moving this thread to the PA section will get more responses.
