FEATURED ARTICLE | JANUARY 31, 2017 | BY JENNIFER VANLAEKEN, DIRECTOR OF GRADUATE STUDENT SERVICES, UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO SCHOOL OF NURSING
Nurses are lifelong learners – and you, being the ambitious professional you are, have decided to take your career to the next level.
Whether you have set your sights on research or advanced practice, being both prepared and informed will help you more successfully navigate the graduate nursing admissions process. As the director of graduate student services at UB School of Nursing, I would like to offer a few tips about applying to a graduate nursing program.
The application process, from your initial inquiry to application submission, can be lengthy. And, waiting for the decision can be stressful. Stay positive!
Many nursing programs are competitive and can only accommodate a small, select group of students each year. With careful planning and research, though, you can make your application stand out among the rest and find the best program for your career path!
