    have you guys heard if you are the last semester that the FNP is offered? and then they are switching to BSN-DNP as other schools are already doing it?

    From what I understand, MVU is not going to do this because they value the FNP and other NP specialties. The DNP is offered but many universities are not willing to incorporate this practice to totally remove masters level NP study......the future is not totally set on this model yet and neither is MVU at this time to my knowledge.

    Is everyone else being told that they are unable to yet log in to email/accounts? The helpdesk told me that no nursing students could activate their log in yet. They were unable to tell me when the situation would be fixed. Is everyone else having this issue as well or are they full of it?

    I had asked the same question to my admissions advisor and she stated "It would take a week to get registered into the system after your acceptance".

    I could sign into my email and other accounts within a week of my acceptance date.

    Being curious about a lecture component, I asked during my Welcome Call.

    She stated that each instructor is required to lecture 2 hours every week. The times are determined by the instructor, it is recommended that students watch/listen to them. However, if students cannot sign on at the designated time, we are to notify the instructor and request the recorded link.

    I thought that other students would like to know this as well.

    I just got my acceptance call yesterday. I feel so behind already after reading all of these posts. Does the email account come after the call for Webinar? I was so excited yesterday, now feeling a bit apprehensive and nervous.

    I will sure be attending the lectures as I need all of the help that I can get!! Also everyone, check your emails for the course syllabus which is available 2 weeks prior to the start of class (I received mine yesterday). It contains the reading assignments and not the written assignments and gives some explanation of course direction. confused:

    I also received the syllabus yesterday. :uhoh21:

    Will everyone who was accepted be working and attending online classes?

    Some I imagine will be on-campus and all of us who are in the online classes will be divided into many groups is what I understand. Right now there are like 339 online students for the NP programs combined. Most of them are for the FNP though which is interesting.

    I will be working full time near my home in Michigan while doing this program. Its only one class at a time initially so I think we all should be fine!

    This is the only semester where we take 1 class at a time because next semester (Spring 2013) we have to take 2 at a time and then over the summer months it's back to 1 class at a time over 8 weeks time,I believe it is. Then in the fall it's back to 2 classes at a time along with the clinical component.......I do not see how any of us can hold down a full time job and meet academic obligations at the same time especially starting Spring 2013 onward.....
