SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi! you all. I am so glad to find this forum. I currently feel as if I was struggling alone with the process of applying to Pharm School and PCAT preparation b/c most of my co-workers either look into CRNA or Nurse practitioner program. No one at my job know that I'm applying to pharmacy school. Any RN out there who are applying to Pharm Schools or studying in Pharmacy school? My educational background is BS in nursing and BA. I am currently 26 year-old RN with almost 2 years in nursing (one year in Med-surg, Almost 1 year in ICU). I originally wanted to go pharm school and take pre-pharm when I started college. I changed to nursing basically because I want greencard at that time. I thought It would be difficult going to school on student VISA not being to work and paying out-of-state Tuition. Now, since I got greencard last year, it's time to go back to school and pursue what I originally want to do!!! My GPA is 3.57 (many Bs in nursing courses). My Prerequisite including Anatomy and Physiology I&II = 3.68 Planned PCAT this June and August. Here are some questions.. 1. Will my hospital experience a nurse give me a plus in admission consideration? Should I find experience in Pharmacy like finding a job as pharmacy tech now? it's kind of too late now. I find this difficult to do because I still don't want to quit my current nursing job and earn much less working as entry-level pharmacy tech. Moreover, while I work as nurse, I can save some money to pay for pharmacy school next year? Moreover, I still can learn about drugs/pathophysiology in nursing settings. 2. I am currently studying some music major courses part-time fo fun at local university. It's my hobbie. Will admission committes take it as the lack of motivation for being a pharmacist? Hopefully, they don't think I want to become a musician 3. For RNs who are applying for PharmD program? How will you include nursing backgroud into the position statement? I have trouble writing it because I cannot claim that I like the field of Pharmacy based on the actual pharmacy experience (such as working as a pharm tech). However, I think I know what pharmacists do in hospital setting based on my nursing experience. What I plan to do is to compare nursing and pharmacy. For example, explaining how nursing expereince will help me as a pharmacist. And how nursing experience helps me realize that I would fit more in the field of pharmacy. Do you think this is a good idea? 4. I am in Atlanta, Georgia. But I am willing to move out-of-state. I am still single. haha..no problem moving.. I have some of my relatives in Seattle. Do you know any pharmacy schools there? I am searching for out-of-state pharm schools ..
