Right now my post BSN plans had been leaning towards a psych NP track. I am surprised that directors of the other NP programs said they were not accepting Burlington students / no new students. In my acceptance letter it was strongly implied (at least in my mind) that all NP tracks were available assuming I had adequate academic performance in the BSN portion.

[FONT=Calibri, sans-serif] Once you have successfully completed the BSN portion of the program and have passed the NCLEX a Director over your chosen specialty area will review your performance to determine if you can be admitted to a nurse practitioner specialty. This process allows Northeastern faculty to get to know you as a student and see how you perform in the BSN; while giving the student time to experience many specialty areas before having to make a final decision. You do not have to continue in the MS Administration program, this is just the degree you are guaranteed a space in."
[FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]Perhaps this is just a ploy to get more people to accept a slot in the program? I guess I should not be surprised coming from a sales background
[FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]Anyway, I guess I will have to make some phone calls tomorrow and figure out what the actual deal is regarding the NP tracks!
[FONT=Calibri, sans-serif]What have your thoughts been on the program so far? Any specific strengths / weaknesses to the program so far or just anything that would be helpful to know as an incoming student?
