    Hi!

    I'm in the undergrad program. A bunch of professors met with our class last semester (Fetzer leading, for those of you in the program), who told us that the DEMN program will NOT run a new class next year, but will finish out all the already-started classes.
    Now I heard this directly from the professors, but all this talk of people applying to the program, etc makes me think perhaps they've changed their minds. Maybe somebody has more up-to-date info? I wanted to give people a heads up in case this was still true.

    We have not been told anything about plans to close the DEMN program. They did start a new class this past January and just scheduled an info session in May for new applicants. I do know that they have closed the adult NP program and are not currently accepting applicants for the family NP program while they change the curriculum, but that would not affect the DEMN students since they are all in the clinical nurse leader track.

    Ahhhh, I'm sure it was just the NP program they were talking about. Thanks for clearing things up!

    Hi there - I am applying this year to the MSN program at UNH Durham, any opinions?

    This was really great to read. I was recently accepted to the MSN-Direct Entry program and I start this January.

    I am so happy to hear that people have had positive experiences with it so far. And I too was wondering about whether anyone worked part-time during the program...this is something that I have been struggling with. Its very nerve wracking to quit my full time job and lose my income to go back to school, especially in light of the current economy.

    But my husband and I set a budget and we know that we will be able to handle my loss of income. I just thank my lucky stars that he is so supportive!

    Congrats melmarie23!

    You are in for a whirlwind experience, but very rewarding and definitely worth it. A couple of my cohorts have managed to work 1-2 days/wk. Honestly, I am not sure how they do it, as the program is quite demanding.

    Again, congratulations!

    See you in Hewitt,

    Thanks for your response ddb19!

    I think I am going to feel it out a bit and see if working a couple of days a week is something that I think I might be able to handle. At the very least I am thinking of maybe volunteering my extra time if that is something I can swing. :-)

    I have another question if you dont mind?

    We have our orientation coming up in a couple of weeks...on Dec.2. In the letter we received from the school, it said that we would be fitted for scrubs and would be able to order other equipment such as our stethoscopes. I was wondering if you could give a rough estimate how much these would cost me? I would like to go in prepared.

    Hi melmarie23 --

    Well ... I already had a stethoscope and I opted out of the clipboard (haven't missed it) ... so essentially, all I ordered was the uniform scrubs. I believe it was around $120 for 2 scrub pants, lab coat & 2 shirts. (Since that time, however, there is a new vendor & the shirts are now going to be scrub tops.) So, I guess this is half a help to you!
