DNP at USA anyone?

  1. I was just wondering if anyone here was currently in the DNP program or were about to begin it. I have been accepted into the program for Fall 09. I would love to talk about it!

    I can't do PMs yet. A group of us have gotten together to make roommate plans/dinner plans. If you will PM me your email, I will forward the emails to you so you can join us!

    How is the DNP program at USA coming, are you happy with the program, and most important what are the course requirements (ie, assignments, papers, and avg time/wk spent studying)? I am awaiting acceptance into the Fall 2010 DNP FNP Program.

    Hello love_np, there are several of us entering the program in the fall that communicate through this site. Did you get your official acceptance letter yet?

    I would love to hear what people in the program feel about the MSN to DNP program. I am hoping to start fall 2011.

    Hello Critical Care RN, I also am starting in the fall of 2011, the MSN program.
    Would you please reply as to how satisfied you are with the school and the contacts and information provided.
    I have a few questions still unanswered and I was wondering if you have the name or number of anyone helpful there?
    Thanks, Iconcurr

    Hi iconcurr,
    I have applied to the post masters DNP at USA and Troy. I have not been accepted yet. USA extended their deadline for applications so I am assuming we will not hear for a while. I really haven't had any dialogue with either schools. I am nervous because there are alot of negative comments regarding USA on this website. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    All programs have good and bad- so end up with grumblers. Is there something specific you have heard?
    I just completed my third semester (BSN-DNP). The full time curriculum is insane if you work full time too. Most of the instructors have been great, but the two (out of 11 classes) that weren't were horrible enough that I would never take a class with them again.
