- Jul 10, '08 by RNGrad2006I don't know if you still want a response to your question. I am in the program right now. I am in Class #10 of 15 so I am getting there. I get tuition reimbursement so I am taking one class at a time so I don't have to pay out of pocket. I am taking a break after this class since I am almost out of tuition money. I have two school grade children and am involved in some committees at work so find taking one class at a time plenty. I am looking forward to being done to have more time with my kids. I have done 2 classes at a time once and it is pretty busy at that pace but many people do it. I am thinking of doing 2 at a time late this year early in 2009 just to get finished faster. It gets easier with time because it is a lot of writing papers and eventually you just get good at it. Statistics was more of a challenge since it is a lot of work to do in 8 weeks. Some classes are easier than others. I am doing it online so work it in as best as I can. It will be worth it in the end and find I often read research articles that are very practical to my patients at work. I like the program but will be glad when my husband and I stop fighting over me being in school. It is getting old for him since I have been in school off and on (more on than off) for the last 6 years. Good luck in your decision.

I am a 2006 graduate of the program as well as 2008 MSN grad and currently in the NP program. The education you will recieve is awesome and well worth the effort. The papers can be demanding but the program is very doable for a fulltimer with a family. Commitment is the key
Best of luck

- Mar 22, '09 by RNGrad2006Quote from suenaz64I am currently doing my classes on line. Many students take 2 classes each 8 weeks which is doable while working full time. I do not like to take more than 1 class at a time. It takes longer but I still have responsiblities at home with my children, helping them with their homework etc... so find it easier to manage while only taking one class at a time. But certainly working full time is not a problem. I find it easier to manage everything doing classes on line as it has more flexibility to work around my families schedule and still take classes without having to be out of the home to attend class. I am already doing (3) 12 hour shifts each week when I do not see my family and don't want to add to that by doing classes in person. But it is up to each person how they approach taking classes.What is your school schedule like? Can you work while in school? Thanks
- Mar 23, '09 by SWcitygirlI would like to trytaking 2 classes at a time. Which classes do you consider easier? Thanks
- Mar 23, '09 by RNGrad2006Do not take statistics with any other class!!!! Any of the other classes may be OK though. Health Assessment requires a lot of documentation when you take it on line so may not be the best to take along with another class either. Patho if you have not take it yet might be another you do not want to take at the same time as another class either. The rest might be OK but you may want to take just one at a time at first until you get the hang of things and are better able to assess work load and personal life balance along with a full time work schedule.
- Mar 23, '09 by SWcitygirlThanks so much for your input. I just started taking classes and they won't let you double up until you've completed 1 semester. Not a bad idea - then you're not as likely to get in over your head. I think I'll go into seclusion when I take statistics. I'm a living example of math anxiety!
