    ...That don't require the GRE!! Anyone know of any??? I've got a "realistic" program I applied to that doesn't require them, and i didn't do well enough to feel confident about my 2 "reach" schools that require them...suggestions anywhere east coast-ish would be great!! :-)

    University of South Al has a program that doesn't require the GRE. UAB has a GRE waiver program if your GPA is high enough.

    I know those aren't east coast-ish, but I think both those programs are distance friendly.

    Reggaemuffin,

    I am currently looking at applying to the post-masters program at University of Maryland. I was just curious what your experience has been like? Would you recommend the program? What have your clinical's been like?

    I would have sent this in a private message but I don't have 15 posts yet.

    Thank You

    I am so sorry I am just seeing your post now. I am in my last semester at MD in the ACNP/CNS program. I personally have loved most of it, although it was probably the hardest thing I've done in my life! My clinicals varied- the instructors will take in account your preferences and try to place you accordingly. I've been on inpatient service as well as cardiac surgery rotations- I was able to do procedures such as RSI, central line insertion, chest tube insertion, etc. Are you still looking into programs? Let me know if I can be of any additional help!

    hey reggae muffin,

    i was wondering how you like the post-msn program at md. i am completing my ANP in may and was thinking of applying there. did you also complete a post-msn the same way? and about how long will it take? how many hours are required a semester? i don't have enough posts to private message. if you don't mind, it would be extremely helpful.

    thanks

    Hi,
    I'm in in the master's program for ACNP/CNS at MD so that is my primary degree. The post-MSN program credit requirement varies I believe depending on how many similar classes you've completed in your ANP program. For example, I had at least 4 classes with ANP students so there is a lot of overlap. I believe at most the program is about a year and a half full time but that varies of course depending on how many additional credits you need. In my program, I went full time and it took me two years. I had 150-300 clinical hours to complete each semester in addition to my course work. I wish they had a post MSN program for ANP- I would absolutely do it if I had the option. Anyway, I recommend the program- faculty is great and while the coursework is difficult, you do get a lot out of it. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
