It’s official, I’m going to nursing school! This summer I will be starting the UCSF Masters Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN) for the Family Nurse Practitioner specialty. I am unbelievably excited about this new school and career path.
This is a three-year program leading students with a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field to a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). The UCSF School of Nursing consistently ranks as a top 5 nursing school in the country and I feel extremely happy and proud to have made the cut.
Last year, when I was researching schools, working on applications, and preparing for the interviews, I scoured the internet for information and stories from students. I found reading blogs and discussion board posts to be helpful throughout the whole process, especially for a competitive program like this. In an attempt to pay it forward, I am going to try to document my journey and be a resource to you future applicants. Please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am no expert (yet), but I can tell you what worked for me.
