I just got accepted to start Oct 31 and couldn't be more excited.
I started at St Joseph's College of Maine and finished all the core classes (self-paced, loved it) My career had prepared me for leadership, ethics, policy, etc. but I didn't feel prepared to teach myself the core sciences (pharmacology, assessment, physiology). There is no teaching whatsoever, just assignments that are graded. Georgetown has 2 hours of lecture per class every week in addition to all the resources we all already have online. But what really did it for me was that the clinicals at St Joseph's changed several times from 500 hours self-paced to 600 hours, then 680 hours with a cohort over 3 semesters of 15 weeks and you find your own clinical preceptors.
I've joined my states NP association as well as several linked in groups for NP's and there is quite a bit of concern voiced by new grads and the adequacy of their education. I don't want to become certified and feel like I'm faking my way through (which was the way the St Joseph's program was going).
I'm sure Georgetown is not for everyone, but remember there are many employers that offer 20-30K per year loan repayment that you aren't eligible for if you don't have loans. (National Health Service Corp for a start).
I also like that Georgetown arranges the clinical preceptors for me.
