How many hours a week do you think someone can realistically work during the program?
Andrew Wilson
48:41
How has COVID19 impacted your classes/simulations/clinical? Can we hear from from a 2nd semester student and a end of program student? What has JHU SON done to ensure you get the clinical hours needed?
Julia Johns
49:48
Do you hold work-study positions? If so, what positions are you in?
Karli McGuiness
50:18
Hi! What made JHU stand out when comparing with other schools? How do you rectify the angst that comes with taking out large student loans and do you think your income out of school will justify the loan debt?
Rhemy Guerra
51:23
what tips can you give someone who has been out of school for a year? What can one do to prepare for this accelerated program?
Jannat
51:58
For the students from the West coast, did you move your car with you? Is a car really needed if you live near JHU campus?
emmataylor
52:17
Do any of you live by yourself? If so, what are some neighborhood suggestions for someone living by themselves ?
chad
53:52
What classes are the most challenging and what makes them the most difficult (volume, level of content, exam style)? And how much variance in difficulty is there between classes?
Katie Edwards
54:30
What made you decide on a MSN entry program? What opportunities do you hope to open for yourself by having this type of degree? in comparison to a BSN
Victor Inga
54:58
What surprised you about this program when you came into it?
Jenna
55:14
For those choosing to pursue the NP path - what made you choose the MSN+DNP route rather than the ABSN+MSN path? I hear conflicting information regarding the necessity of a DNP as a nurse practitioner.
Nikita Kaur
55:24
If you aren’t planning to settle in Maryland after the program, are you able to take the NCLEX for another state to receive a license to practice in the state you plan to return to?
Andrew Wilson
56:50
What do you suggest we do now to prepare, if anything? What do you wish you would have done before starting? Brush up on anatomy/physiology? Or enjoy the free time?
Joel Duberstein
56:53
For those of you who worked in research while in nursing school - what labs did you work in? What labs do you recommend?
Claudia Todd
57:14
What plans do you have after completing the program and how confident do you feel on seeking employment in the field of nursing?
Autumn
57:30
Is living off campus and commuting (say from Catonsville) feasible?
Jenna
57:43
For students interested in global health work, are there substantial opportunities at Hopkins for this type of work (potentially more so than at other universities)?
Natalie Alvarez
58:45
Before COVID-19, what was a general ratio of online classes vs. in person classes?
Rhemy Guerra
58:48
How much of the program would you say is online?
Jenna
59:14
I have heard that seeking employment as an RN with an entry MSN can be harder than with a BSN (especially for states like CA, where many large hospitals require a BSN). Do you feel that you’ll have enough employment opportunities with the entry MSN after graduating?
Rhemy Guerra
59:36
wow that’s awesome !
emmataylor
01:01:47
Where can I find that work study link?
Joel Duberstein
01:02:53
I have a friend who is graduating from the JHU program this semester. He is overall happy with the program, but noted that there were some organizational issues. Have you noticed any drawbacks in the program that you think would be important for prospective students to know before they accept?
Jasna
01:04:14
Did any of you apply or consider applying to the Nurse Corps Scholarship?
Mallory Edwards
01:05:32
Jasna, Direct Entry MSN programs aren’t eligible for the Nurse Corps Scholarship until you have the RN portion done
gracemarola
01:05:56
For students who don’t live in walking distance from campus, do you suggest driving and parking or taking public transportation? If you have a commute do you wish you had chosen to live closer?
Jasna
01:07:34
Mallory, I do not believe that is correct based on the eligibility requirements that I read on the Nurse Corps website. They are listed as such: e a U.S. citizen (born or naturalized), a national, or a lawful permanent residentBe enrolled—or accepted for enrollment—in a professional nursing degree program at an accredited school of nursing in the U.S.Begin classes no later than September 30Have no federal judgment liensHave no existing service commitmentNot be overdue on a federal debt
Mallory Edwards
01:08:29
You have to look at the Application Manual, it goes into detail about the specific programs.
Jasna
01:09:18
Ok, I will double check that.
Mallory Edwards
01:09:30
Jasna, it’s on page 9 of the manual
Jasna
01:09:55
Ok, thank you very much.
Abby Johnson
01:14:56
Have you noticed any discretion between job availability because you have an entry-msn vs. bsn?
Deara
01:18:01
I have a super specific question. Shania, since you are a Baltimore native, how has your experience been? I'm also a native here and there has been a certain community perception of Hopkins. Has your work at Hopkins influenced your perception?
Natalie Alvarez
01:20:22
I’m from CA and don’t have a ton of experience with the cold and snow…how was that transition? How often does it snow in Baltimore?
Abiy Mersha
01:21:31
What is COMPLEX mean?
Abiy Mersha
01:22:19
Is there a book out there that will prepare student before marticulation?
Alex Nava
01:22:25
@Abyi Complex Health Alterations is course taken your third semester. It’s the third part of a 3-part series, which includes common health alterations & chronic health alterations.
Abiy Mersha
01:23:08
Thank you @Alex
Rebecca SC
01:23:29
Agree with Alex. The best way to prepare is focus in 1st, 2nd semesters!
annelauren
01:26:53
Is there a DMV certification? Or can you only get certified in one state.
