    I'm in the adult/gero np program at USA. I'm doing a post masters and starting clinical this fall. I'm sure I can answer some of your questions.

    Hi danapjmsn,Thanks for the quick reply? How have you liked the program so far? What are the negatives and positives of it? Are you going part time? Can it easily be done working full time and going part time through the lecture portion of the curriculum?

    I am doing part time without working. I only need core classes b/c I am doing a postmasters...already did thefluff classes. So far, I've taken patho, pharm, and finishing up asses. Now. I find it challenging, and I do study alot. Some do work full time and partime. I'm not sure I could handle
    it. Pros and cons...I have enjoyed my professors so far, and I've learned a lot. We use a device called secure proctor that finger prints, films and proctors while you take exams. Patho and pharm were open book, but you are not given enough time to look up a lot of answers. Assessment is not open, and from what hear, it is closed for the rest of the program. I'm making As so far, and hopefully will hold on to it for the next 2 tests.

    Thanks so much for all of the good info. I'm nervous about having to work full time but I really don't have a choice right now. Was patho and pharm really difficult?

    Hi flightRn,I am taking patho and a research class first semester. I work Monday through Friday right now,40 hours a week. Do you think it will be too much for right now? I was thinking I would drop work to part time after I start clinical rotations.
