Interviewed on Sept. 14 and received a phone call about an hour after the interview saying I was accepted! Really loved the faculty and atmosphere. Good luck to everyone interviewing soon! Don't stress, just be yourself. All of the faculty and people helping at the interview were so nice and personable. No need to be worried and stressed!
I think the article is using studies conducted with prelicensure nursing students (which means prior to being an RN - not NP) and extrapolating that to APRN education. So it is focusing on APRN education, but has absolutely no data to support its claims.
My program used simulation, virtual case studies, standardized patients (real live people who let you practice on them (including pelvics and DRE/prostate exams...), etc, as did the medical students and PA students at my university. This was in addition to 6 clinical rotations spanning 1.75 years (3 year program).
One commentary article written in 2016 that has not influenced accreditation in any way, shape or form (as I stated the 2019 CCNE standards were just released) is hardly a strong piece of evidence and should not be the cinch pin for your argument.
Hello! I would be interested in shadowing with you. I am a Pre-PA student and in the process of a career change here in the Seattle area. Please let me know what I need to do to set this up. Thank you!
