University of Hawaii-MEPN PROGRAM...anyone heard about it?

  1. 0 I'm applying for UH MEPN program for Fall 2009. Has anyone heard about the program? It's fairly new but I just want to know what I'm getting myself into...lol. I know overall, nursing school is tough but would like some feedback on the MEPN program itself.

    Thanks!

    Hey Propective Nursing Students,
    I found out I got into the MEPN program and the BSN but unfortunately, I had to turn down the MEPN. I've decided to go with the traditional BSN. For those in the MEPN, good luck! I don't really know anyone in the MEPN but hope you share your experiences with us.

    BSN is classroom based. MEPN is both first year is classroom and when you transition to Master's specialty, then it's both online and classroom based. Are u thinking about it?

    Aloha AjBob,

    I too have applied for the Fall 2010 MEPN program. I have heard that the first part of the program costs are running around $100,000. I couldn't believe it.

    I'm crossing my fingers for a letter ofr interview in March. The best of luck to you.

    I saw some private posts and the person said they had payed that just for the first part of the program. I am calling tomorrow to double check and make sure of the real cost of everything. I thought that was a bit too high for the first part of the program. I also read that they were having a hard time finding jobs after taking the NCLEX because they didn't have degrees (BSN) while doing the NP portion.

    That cost is not right for one year, unless you need like 50,000 for live costs...lol! But let me know what you find out please.

    And I wouldn't worry about finding work, it prob is hard as HI is small, but if your not picky for the two years... It would cost but you can ensure work exsp by volunteering

    Good luck!

    Ps- what spec?
