Did anyone else get accepted into the Wilkes University PMHNP program? I got accepted into the post-MSN for Spring 2020. Got my acceptance letter today.

Msmedic68w,

My last transcript arrived today. My application is now complete. When did you apply? From reading 2019 posts I though it would take a month for decisions to be made. Hopefully I will get my acceptance letter very soon as well. I applied to the BSN-MSN route. Do you know anything about the program, or how it is constructed?

I was told decisions for Spring 2020 would be made early September by the nursing department, and they were right. My acceptance came September 12th. They notify you by email to you check your student account and from there you can the acceptance letter. Then they direct you to pay $300 holding fee for your seat. After that I don't know. My advisor won't be back til the 23rd of this month, so I have no idea what comes next or what perspective students are to do🤔

As far as the program goes, I don't know much. There's some posts around here but not many that go into any great detail about what it's like once you're in.

Okay!

What date did you have all of your documentation and transcripts in? Do you have previous psych experience?

I had all my stuff in 7/22. And I already had previous psych experience, my entire nursing career is psych, that's all I have ever wanted to do. I'm not sure what Wilkes looks at specifically, but my graduate GPA was a 3.96. My regular nursing GPA was just a 3.17.

I don't think the criteria to get in is particularly high, they were just easy to apply to so I went with them.

Okay, great!

I have ICU experience, but of course deal with a lot of psychosis, psychiatric medical management, and different mental diseases. My BSN GPA is a 3.19 due to previous courses I took at the university a couple years prior to doing my BSN. I was somewhat worried about that. I hope I hear something in a couple of weeks!

Hi, are you going for the bsn to MSN? I just realized the OP applied for the POST-masters cert program, and that is why the timeline is earlier.

I applied for the regular MSN also, so I hope we hear back some time in October!

@kaylee yes! I, too, am applying to the regular MSN route. I figured the time line difference was due to the different application tracks. I pray we get accepted! Where are you currently working? Do you know anything in detail about the program? I know it can be completed in 2 1/2 years full time! Do you know where you will be doing your clinicals?

When you get accepted, you pay the deposit and then just sit back and wait for them to contact you with official welcome packets, which I found out today ( I was wondering what what was happening). Not sure when that will be. So be prepared for that. Though it probably will be quicker response since I guess you guys will know in October? I believe we all will start at the same time though.

In reference to the past forums including the 2019 forum the MSN route students found out in December. So I am assuming we will know in a month after the deadline. Yes, you are correct we do all start at the same time. I joined the 2019 PMHNP FB group, and there are some good information from current students on there. You all should join. @Msmedic68w let me know what the welcome packets are about when you receive them. Also, if it states a specific start date please let me know. Thank you!
