I'm looking into becoming an NP. I have no prior RN experience, so I'd be doing a direct entry MSN program.
Does anyone know what the general program schedules look like?
I'm looking for a program that, ideally, would begin in September and allow me to have summers available. I'm not sure if this is possible - do you do clinical work in the summers? I ask because I've been running a summer children's theater for the past 2 years. I love the place and would LOVE to keep doing that, since it also provides me year-round income but the off-season work is something I could easily incorporate into a school schedule.
It would be great for me to do schooling during the year and keep this summer position until I graduate and am ready to work full time.
