    Hi,

    I am currently applying to different schools offering these types of programs (Rush and UIC) and I fgured that I would ask you your opinion. I am sure that you must be done or pretty close to completing this program. I wanted to know what was your take on it, was it really intense, how was the curriculum set up, and was there help (tutoring etc) for students who needed help in certain areas. Due to these being newer programs I have heard some horror stories about Rush some semesters were set up as only half days and the next semester it was all day, there did not seem to be any real structure to the program.


    Thanks,

    Tiffany
    Hi Tiffany,

    I am in the cohort which graduates this November. The first and fifth quarters are intense, the rest less so. The curriculum is set up with clinical every non-summer quarter, RN-specific academic classes in the first few quarters, and the Research Project and APN-Core courses spread out through the middle and last quarters of the program. There's no set tutoring program, though students do tend to help each other out with coursework. DePaul's program is actually one of the oldest of its type in the country (the third, if I remember correctly), and there's a definite structure to the program, though it is still being revised to better meet the needs of students (for example, pharmacology is now spread out over two quarters whereas my cohort took it in one).

    Thank u so much for the info! I had no idea that Depaul's program had been around that long. That sounds great that Pharmacology is now offered in two quarters because I hear it is a extremely difficult program. Congratulations to you I am sure u r very proud of this great acomplishments and I am sure the time must of flew. Well I have submitted everything and am waiting for a reply I am not in a hurry on when I can start I am pretty flexible at this time so please keep your fingers crossed .

    Take Care

    I noticed your informative postings on this thread about Depaul MENP Program. I was recently admitted to the 2012 Winter cohort and was wondering if you can provide me insights as to the best instructors for the first four classes (301, 322, 332, & 431). I am really nervous since I have an Accounting background. What are the pitfalls to avoid? Which of the courses are the most tedious and difficult? What studying strategies do you suggest? Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    As I stated in the thread you mentioned, I graduated nearly a year ago, and thus my knowledge of the program is rapidly going out of date. The instructors for the classes you asked about have changed a few times since I took them in 2009, so I can't tell you who is better. I can tell you that, at least when I was still in the program, you don't have a choice for lecturer in those classes - there's only one lecture section per quarter, and the whole cohort attends that section.

    As far as studying - you've been to college before, you know what works for you in various situations.
