This upcoming weekend, I will be attending a Preview Event for my nursing program. I am super excited because attending brings me a little closer to the official start date. I also have a lot of questions that I would like to have answered and this event seems like the perfect opportunity. Hopefully, I can bring back some very relevant information and share it with you guys!
Today I want to share a secret about me. So when I was in high school, I attended a Practical Nursing Program. For those who don’t know, the Practical Nursing Program is designed for students who wish to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. The total length of the program was two years. This program was connected to another high school. So I spent a half day at one school and the other half at my home school. We also attended many clinical at local hospitals in the Chicagoland area. After completing the program, I was eligible to take the NCLEX exam. So here are a couple of throwbacks pictures from my graduation in 2008. Some how I wish I could fast forward to 2020 and be done with this MSN already 😩
So the verdict is in! In January 2019, I will be starting the Master’s Entry to Nursing Practice program at DePaul University. This program is designed to prepare students with a bachelor’s degree in any field to become a professional registered nurse through the NCLEX-RN examination.
This program is a two-year accelerated program, ideal for individuals who are careers changers, do not want to obtain another bachelor’s degree, or whose ultimate goal is advanced practice nursing or doctoral preparation in nursing.
This was my first choice for nursing school and I am more than excited to be starting soon. Below I attached my Acceptance Letter.
