Thanks UVA - I'm hoping to practice in CT, NY or MA so I'll look into the differences in those states.
apocatastasis - What don't you like about it UT's program?
Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited about becoming a psych NP, but UT is political and I find many of the faculty members condescending, unhelpful, and disrespectful, particularly during the first pre-licensure year of the program (after which point you don't see most of those faculty again as an NP student). Also, the program is new and we're the first cohort, so they're sort of... bug testing the courses on us. It's good to be part of a new program that will create good things for the community, but it's also difficult to be a guinea pig.
Then again, from what I hear, faculty being unnecessarily political and condescending is the norm for nursing schools
... and for grad school in general, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
