    I am starting this program in January as well!! A few other nurses from my hospital are already in the program. They said you can easily work full time, and that because the class is online it is very flexible! Sounds like a good program!! I'm excited!! Don't be nervous, if you have any questions when classes start I'll try and help

    Thank you.
    To replace real world class meetings there are typically many small assignments and non-synchronic communication(postings).

    The thing about online courses is to know exactly what the expectations are, and what all the deadlines are.

    Get your books, and syllabus and review the latter well before the class starts. That way you can ask questions about anything about the assignments that may be confusing

    I start in April and I'm wondering how everyone is liking the program. Any tips or advice? My employer challenged me to complete the program before 2013 so I will be taking two classes at a time and that makes me very very nervous. Would love any suggestions to help me do it! Thanks!

    How are the classes going so far? I just applied and still need to have my transcripts evaluated. But I'm hoping to start in the fall!

    I know it has been 2 years since you started the Purdue program but I am highly considering doing it too. Any advice? I am also stressed since I haven't been in school for a long time.
