Hi all. I am applying to three schools (possibly). University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Arkansas State University, and Union University. I have 5 1/2 yrs of ICU experience- 1 year of Trauma ICU, 4 yrs of CCU, and 2 months of CVICU ped, and a little over a month of Transplant ICU. I have a 3.89 gpa (BSN) and about a 3.6 gpa overall. I have adult CCRN, ACLS, BLS. I will be taking PALS in July. I graduated BSN degree with magna cum laude, Dean's List, and was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society. What do you think my chances are as a first time applicant? Of the above schools (if anyone has any experience/input), which one is considered best? Any stories would be helpful and also- how are the interviews for each of these schools? THX
