Best online Psych NP Program?

  1. 0
    Hello all,I'm considering applying to a psych NP program in the next few years, and will be living nowhere near a program. My only option then is online. Anyone have experience with a program, good or bad? Things I'm looking for are, in order of importance:1. Quality - do you feel like you're really learning to practice as an independent mental health nurse practitioner?2. Cost - some are just so expensive!3. Clinical experience preceptor help - does the school help or must you do it alone?Thanks so much!

    I went to Rush. They do have some clinical settings available, however, I set up my own to my particular interests. I know they just received $12 million in grant money to train NPs so maybe they can help you out with tuition.

    Did you like Rush? It's so expensive! I'm looking right now at USI and Vanderbilt. USI is about 15K and Vandy is about 44K (if I'm reading it right - I keep seeing people say Vandy is very expensive but then they offer schools that cost 50k so I don't get it). Anyway, quality is important so I'm hesitant with USI (southern Indiana)

    I'm seeing...$1000 per credit OOS (times 43 credits) at UAB. Am I missing someting or has the tuition really skyrocketed that much?

    Whoops, look like they have gone up. They are getting millions from the government also so perhaps that's why...

    That's for in state....if you're not FROM Alabama it's actually $1200 for the first and $1000 after that, which is ridiculous. I could go to Vanderbilt for that price.
