    Thanks Mark,
    You have been very helpful. I have read all of your posts and they have been very enlightening. However, All I can say is wow about the 200 papers. I am ok with research but just don't like to do it and my typing skills are awful, but I have made it through my BSN program and it required a lot of writing as well. I have been trying to find an advanced pharmacology course elsewhere so that I can cut back on my tuition. That is one of my main concerns , even with the student loan I will have to have more funds. Congrats you are almost done. wish you the best. How is the clinical process going so far I mean as far as set up is going? By the way I am from a small little town called Ruleville in MS. I start class on Sept 4.
    The application process for the practicums has been a little cumbersome. The hardest part for me was getting the affiliation agreements hashed out with some of the larger facilities. Smaller organizations are much more streamlined. You can petition to take 2 practicums peer quarter as I have, but that will put you in the clinic 3 to 4 days per week each quarter. You might be surprised how much money is available through the government for graduate school. I take out enough to pay for school and have some extra money to help with expenses while I am only working part time.

    I shouldn't have a problem getting 36 hours in for clinical a week. I hope to be able to take two classes at a time when I get started in September. How is the pharmacology course going. That may be the only one I will take alone. My math skills haven't been utilized in a while.

    3-4 days per week isn't feasible in the setting that I am working. Wow I may have to switch units and work 12 hour shifts. If not I don't see myself taking a year to complete practicums ;-(

    This worries me because I work 9-5

    There is a clinic in less than a mile from my home that stays open to 12 midnight. I know the medical director and several of the nurse practitioners. I plan to go in from 4 til 12 whenever I make it to that point. I have 5 core courses to take and 6 speciality. going to do everything I can to successfully finish in 18 months.

    I have a 97.5 in the class half way through week 9. Yes a timed test every week, and they are killers, but the upside is they only count 10% of your total grade.

    I did not....but I have been a nurse for 20 years and have many connections in my area.

    in order to finish the practicum in 6 months you will have to put in at least 24 hours per week in clinicals. Sounds like you may have to change jobs or go part-time. I have quit work all together and will start clinical in about a month. I'm taking a break and doing some fishing before get down to business.
