NP programs in Philly

  1. I am interested in starting my msn next year and have been looking at drexel, widener, villanova and jefferson.

    i am particularly interested in er/acute care np programs and like the sound of both widener's and jeff's programs.

    does anyone attend either one of these schools and if so any ideas/recommendations?


    thanks in advance!

    Hi Tridil,

    I looked at these programs while searching for a school to get my MSN. I am not going to either of them, so I can't help you out much, but I do know that they are both pretty expensive schools and that Widener (as far as I know) does not have an acute care NP program. The ER/Critical Care track is to become a Clinical Nurse Specialist. On the other hand, the faculty at Widener were very nice and helpful and responded very quickly to emails that I sent to them. They were always willing to talk to me either on the phone or via email. Hope this helps a little!

    where did you decide on?

    jeff's program seems to have more clinical and less theory/etc.

    i am good at recalling information but i truly hate writing papers!!
