Thoughts on whether this pandemic will impact admissions for not just nursing but all other frontline healthcare professional programs?

It might.

There are several programs that have cancelled their clinical component for the foreseeable future, and more and more are following suit each day; without clinical, students are unable to continue these programs. Obviously the details are being worked out on a day-by-day basis, but even if students are permitted to finish the semester with an incomplete and make-up their clinical hours in the future, most areas already suffer from a shortage of clinical spots. If local hospitals and LTC facilities are already at capacity, it would make sense that they wouldn't be able to fit another cohort of students into the mix.

Yeah I’m worried about this as well as I finish up my last semester of prerequisites. I haven’t seen any info from the nursing school that I applied to but then again things are still pretty early and admission letters still haven’t been sent out yet.

A program I applied to has canceled interviews and may end up choosing applicants solely by looking at grades, TEAS scores, and letters of intent. I was really hoping to speak with the interviewers to highlight my experience in health care. I feel like this will make it more difficult to choose between applicants. The coronavirus situation continues to evolve so I expect to get an update by April.
