Anyone Have Experience with USA Online Family Psychiatric NP Program?

  1. Hello all,

    I've been reading through this forum and would like to get some opinions on the University of South Alabama Family Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner online program.

    The reviews -- as best I can tell - seem to be mixed about the UAB program. The price, however, is good compared to most programs and the clinical work is spread out so I won't have to travel to Alabama more than 5 times.

    I am 55 years old, have worked as a psych nurse for 25 years, and have no interest in spending Vanderbilt or Georgetown type money when I don't know how many working years I have left.

    Can folks let me know what they've heard about the USA Family Psychiatric NP program. Anecdotal and third-hand opinions would be fine but I'd LOVE to hear from actual USA students.

    Thanks so much.

    Hello I'm currently in the program, and just attending classes part-time due to my busy work schedule. So far the program has been pretty good, and very demanding at times depending on the course. The only thing I hate about the course is it does not offer blackboard, and you have to find your own preceptor once you enter the clinical portion of the program. I did like how the program did not require you to have the GRE, which was a plus. Well I hope this information is helpful in helping you make your decision. Goodluck. Comora
