WSU DNP

I applied to (Washington State University) WSU's DNP class for Fall 2017. I was wondering if anyone else did? Or does anyone currently attend their graduate school? It says it is mostly online and I was wondering how it is structured, admissions is not very forth-coming with information.

I got in as well to the psych dnp Vancouver campus. I live in Portland so in order to get in state tuition I can only take 8 credits a semester so it would take much longer to complete the program. Is anyone else doing this? Is anyone planning on going to school very part time and working full time?

I actually just now saw this, sorry about that. I actually am in the same boat! I am hoping to find a job in Spokane because I was previously living there. I currently live/work in Puyallup but applied to Spokane campus and was accepted to the FNP.

As for my GPA/background, I have no problem sharing. I'm not from the PNW originally, my degree is from a school in the south. I started as a med/surg nurse in Florida and then became a travel nurse, my GPA is a 3.8 for my BSN. I wandered to WA and never left, I love this place. I will however be paying out of state tuition because my "home of record for taxes" is not WA.

I did a fair amount of emailing with WSU asking questions when I was applying because I was unsure how competitive I was. I do recommend applying to at least 2 or 3 schools. I have friends from undergrad that only applied to one and weren't accepted, so they had a wait a full year to re-apply. I also used rankings, I didn't apply to UW because I know my GRE score wasn't high enough and they're in the top 10 every year for nursing. I actually went to nursing school with a woman who graduated with a 4.0 and came in with a 4.0. She was denied admission to UW's nursing school as an undergrad, her experience did not inspire faith that I would be accepted into their graduate program (that to me is a crazy competitive undergrad program)! I saved myself the money and applied to other programs.
