    There are many programs that you can get your DNP and not be an NP. Chamberlain College, Capella, Grand Canyon, and many others have DNP programs!

    Lucy100. There are many things you can do as a nurse educator. I did my practicum teaching an online MSN class at Chamberlain with a mentor. I graduated in Feb of this year and will now be teaching as an online professor in Chamberlain's BSN program. Chamberlain started a residency program for new graduates of the MSN in Education program to teach online with a mentor for a year and get paid. After a year if you do well you will continue teaching there on your own. Great opportunity to get experience.

    Lucy100, first let me say Chamberlain is nothing like OU. I was very pleasantly surprised when I started at Chamberlain. I graduated with my BSN from OU. It took me 2 years and 3 months to finish my MSN, but I did one class at a time. You can do it quicker if you double up.
    No thesis at all. I can honestly say that I was very happy with the education program there.

    I know when I was in my BSN, many students took micro and A & P at Clovis College online and said it was not bad at all. "No" I did not go there, but many did, and said the tuition was very reasonable.

    Just finished my final class and now have my MSN in Education! I only have good things to say about Chamberlain and had a super experience with great instructors who want you to succeed. Chamberlain just started a nurse residency program for new graduates in the MSN Education track who teach online with a mentor for a year and get paid and get teaching experience. I will be teaching online for Chamberlain starting in May!

    Yes, but the virtual lab was kinda hard to get use to at first. I got a "B" in the class which I was happy about!

    Everyone I know who took it there did well and all the lab work was done at home.

    I took microbiology at Edukan about 4 years ago. It was not that easy! Lots of work. Many students when I was Ohio University for my BSN took micro and chemistry at Clovis online and said it was not bad at all!

    Kimora26 the patho/pharmacology class is for nurse educators, and I have a super professor who makes it "fun" and is very bright. Not bad at all and not like a regular pharmacology or patho class. I was dreading it but it is great so far! I have 3 classes left after these two as I doubled up this term.

    Yes you can! In the track classes you have to get permission from the Dean, but as long as your GPA is good I have had no problem getting permission to do 2 classes

    Nikki, I am in Chamberlain online MSN track right now and love it! I finished the 6 core MSN classes and am now in the educator track classes. I am doubling up this session and will have 3 classes left after the July session. I am doing my practicum online teaching an online class with one of my professors. Many students have done practicums in the education departments at the hospital they work in, or at nursing schools, or online with previous instructors. I believe you need 100 practicum hours. So far I have been pleased with the 8 week courses and professors!

    I graduated 2 years ago from OU. Classes are 5 weeks which can be intense. I took one at a time. If you aren't working it should be doable taking 2 classes at a time. Also the TA's can make or break you. Good luck. I got through just fine but spent a lot of hours on my classes.
