- Jul 8, '09 by Praise,RNIt's great that u made a decision that fits "your life." UOP-MSN program defintiely becomes a challenge as you progress through the MSN courses. The initial classes are bascially to introduce you to graduate studies and what will be required of you as a graduate-level learner. So, take advantage of the free tutorials and workshop in the beginning, because it will help ensure your ability to keep up with online learning requirments. Take time out for yourself and your family, as the stressors will come. Advance planning is vital/crucial, in that you must not procrasinate as this could cause major set backs in your progression through the program. I agree with some of the other posters that some students become fustrated because they are not prepared to do graduate level work and you will see persons drop out of the program or become fustrate within the thread and/or perform poorly academically.
You must acheive a B average in every course with uop MSN program! This is the expectaion at most ground and online programs.

- Jul 20, '09 by teenie0731Hello everyone!
I am intersted in attending the University of Phoenix for their MSN program in the future and was wondering if anyone had any good/bad feedback? I've heard it is on the expensive side but also very good things too!
Thanks so much!
- Jul 20, '09 by Phlavyahget ready for a lot of paper writting, group work and high $$$ tuition, although i believe i've gained a lot more (academically speaking) from uop than from any other universities i attended, it saddens me that other institutions still don't accept many credits from uop... as if online classes are junk… if only they took the time to learn about uop they would be very surprised. if you plan to transfer out before graduation, you may have to take some classes twice. good luck! :-)
- Jul 25, '09 by ReneeGianniniThanks for all the great info on UOP. I am considering completing my NP with a MSN as I was certified back when I was in my 20's. I have been debating doing the MSN Completion for NP's (I am cert'd in women's health) or just getting it over with and doing an FNP MSN program. The debate stems from the ultimate number of hours, getting the MSN completed, versus, doing a Post MSN FNP certificate. I am still undecided, as money is an issue, and I am approaching 50, so the cost benefit equation bothers me. I have been away from nursing for 14 years, although I have been constantly volunteering during that time with our Medical Reserve Team in our Village, but now have started back to work as a triage RN with a occupational health company. I was wondering about admission and not currently having recent JOB experience..I had been a 70 hour per week OB/GYN NP for 10 years when I left the workforce. Anyone else doing a NP Completion or the Post certificate FNP that would care to chime in...I need some help deciding....on which path to follow>...thanks, ReneeLast edit by ReneeGiannini on Jul 25, '09 : Reason: typo

- Jul 28, '09 by tokki2uHi,
I'm considering going back to UOP for the MSN program. Can someone please give detailed information regarding the Nursing Practicums? I don't work in a patient-care setting. I'm concerned about being able to fulfill the requirements of the practicums.
- Oct 15, '09 by tokki2uI'm starting the MSN at UOP in a week. I've had two classes some time ago. I was just wondering what two classes have you alread taken and what will be not next class.
- Dec 17, '09 by GforceOk I am simply asking for encouragement. I'm 51 cut to part time and enrolled in the practitioner to MSN program. I' so nervous about the computer APA format, team work, but I really need an MSN to do what I want. Any advice, comments are welcome
- Dec 17, '09 by tokki2uGo for it! I'm in the MSN, 4th class. It is very, very, busy. Many writing assignments. Team projects are also learning experiences. Do your best. You will make it.
- Dec 17, '09 by GforceStill nervous Like everyone, lots of demands on my time, but I am going for it. Good luck to you you are almost half way!!
