  1. Even if it’s rolling admissions, they don’t just review your application and give you an answer immediately. The people who heard back after you were either stronger applicants that they knew for sure they wanted to give an interview to, or were worse candidates who got a rejection letter. There’s a lot of people that still haven’t heard back yet that are under consideration. They have HUNDREDS of applicants to decide on. It takes time.
  2. That’s because you’re still under consideration. You haven’t made the interview but also haven’t been straight rejected either. If they review your application and decided you weren’t a fit, you would be given a rejection letter. Your in the group that can go either way depending on how interviews/offers/rejections go. You still have a great chance. No news is good news sometimes.
  3. It’s rolling admissions meaning that the people who apply first hear back first. Probably all the early-mid May applicants. If you applied and didn’t hear back, it’s okay!! Just wait patiently:) There’s a lot that goes into it. Just wanna provide some reassurance!!
  4. Aww darn!! I’m sorry, but you have other chances at other schools! Don’t lose hope. When did you guys apply?
  5. I did today!! Seems like they sent out another batch today. Good luck everyone!!
  6. It seems like they’re sending confirmation emails in groups about 9-10 days apart. People stated they received them on 5/13, 5/22, and 6/1. So hopefully within the next few days! My caspa was verified 6/7 and I haven’t gotten one yet either.
  7. I got an email at 2am from CASPA saying my application was verified and at 10am recieved an email from northwestern saying my app was under review.
  8. Yeah you’re right, my boss said 1 year until you can go PRN. In reality, I know quitting is not an option haha but I just got a new job:) I think I’ll really like it so I’ll wait another application cycle if I do so that I can apply with more hours. thanks!!
  9. Wow, 10,000 hours is a lot!! I definitely want to keep working while I start taking classes and apply to schools. I even asked my boss if I could go PRN for these reasons and she said no:/ I work nights which is super disruptive to my schedule and life, so I’m trying now to get a day shift position so I can handle taking classes on top of working. Hopefully that will make things better. Thanks for your advice!! I appreciate it a lot:) I’ll apply this time around and hopefully I’ll get lucky with something! I would LOVE to get in this cycle, but we’ll see.
  10. I totally agree with you that your education/experience is what you put into it! I just do not want to feel like I have to do absolutely everything in school, especially pick my own clinical sites (heard that can be a nightmare). I also didn’t spend any money on becoming a nurse (my mom is a saint and paid for it, and will also be paying for PA school). I work on a surgical tele floor, so yes, bedside. I’ve been off orientation for almost 5 months now. I am a very quick learner and already feel like I want to move on, but that is also because I don’t really like nursing which is rush
  11. I am a nurse who’s been working full time for 7 months now. That adds up to 1200 direct patient care hours. Is this competitive enough for PA schools (in general.) Looking at HCE alone, I want to know if this is competitive. I know nursing is probably one of the best types of HCE, but my hours are kind of low. I am asking because I want to quit my job in January so I can take the three courses I need to for PA school while studying for the GRE so I can apply this spring. However, I need to be pretty confident I can get into a program this application cycle or else I’m screwing myself over by f
  12. Hey guys! I am wondering whether you think I should go to PA or NP school. I’ve been a nurse for 6 months and have around 1,000 hours of experience, and I want to apply in April (1600ish hours at that point) to both PA and NP school. Reason why I want to go to PA school is because of the vigorous curriculum, and from what I’ve heard, NP school seems like a joke. someone told me her teacher told the class “fake it till you make it” and then she dropped out cuz she felt very ill-prepared to be a provider. I just don’t have years and years of nursing experience to provide me with a g
  13. Do you know what kind of NP/PA you want to be? What is the dual program? That sounds intriguing! Also, are there residency programs for NPs?
  14. I understand that there are tons of resources, but I felt the need to open up my own post so I can reply with my own questions if needed. As far as independence, I am not too worried about it. I am also fortunate enough to not need to worry about money. I am leaning towards PA, but I do respect and understand your decision for wanting to be an NP.
  15. Good to hear!! Do you think if I transfer to the OR and be an OR nurse for about a year before I apply is a good idea? The schools around me require 1,000 hours of HCE to even apply but competitive applicants have about 2-3,000. Ill have 1,000 hours (6 months) of med/surg experience and about 2,000 hours of OR experience if I switch. I just dont want them to see OR nursing as not being great HCE since the patient is asleep. I will stay at the bedside if I HAVE to... however it is not something I prefer to do (I love the OR.) I should point out that the HCE portion of my application needs to st
