Thanks for sharing DoulaMe! That is comforting to hear. It sounds like any issues that would arise from the lack of BSN are rare and avoidable. Yay!

Hey I was wondering if anyone currently enrolled could tell me a little bit about student's backgrounds before applying to the program. I just received my bachelors in Psychology and have work experience in childcare and after school programs. I do not have any direct nursing or medical experience, will that be a huge negative on my application?

They look for why you want to become a nurse, not what have you done in the past that is related to nursing. It is a graduate entry program for non-nurses, that's the point! You'll be fine :)

Jovia, I'm curious to know where you've decided to head and what factors influenced the path. I'm still on the fence between VUSN and YSN. Any thoughts you have are welcome!

Not having a BSN and getting your MSN through the GEPN program is a bold move. I'm a BSN educated floor nurse working in an oncology/hematology unit at a magnet hospital (exactly where i want to practice as an NP), and there's so much learning i still got to do. It's intense. My hat goes off to floor nurses everywhere. My recommendation is to get relevant healthcare experience and truly being certain of why you want an advance nursing degree in the specialty you're going to. Volunteering in the field of interest in is a good start.

I'm prepping for the GREs and starting the YSN application process soon. Best wishes to everyone! We got this.
