    I too have been accepted. There is an advanced health assessment class which is taken the second year of study with the clinical component of the program. The entire program helps with these types of assessments but the clinical portion of the program in conjunction with classroom work equips the students for clinical assessments of patients.

    Thank you. That information is very helpful.

    Congratulation on your acceptance!!

    I am hoping that I can get enough loans (private and graduate) to pay for school. My undergraduate loans are expensive now.

    Has anyone else had any problems or any advice?

    MU has On campus classes once a semester. I know that you have to go and check-off by the instructor. I took the RN-BSN tract and that is how it was.

    Well, aggregate amounts are $138,000 total including both undergraduate and graduate loans. If you have come near this amount then you will need more funds unless you are like myself and have just enough funds left to complete your program......

    nursegirl2001,

    I think that my undergraduate loans are under $48,000.

    The total/maximum of loans that students can take out including both undergrad and graduate loans is $138,000. If your total undergraduate loans are only $48,000 then you are very fortunate and have nothing whatsoever to worry about !!!!!

Also, does anyone know where I might find FNP certification pass rates per university?
    Ok, I'm currently in the program (2nd course 1st semester) and not very happy. Theoretical Foundations in Nursing (1st course) was very difficult and the terrible book did not help--I had to purchase a second theory book just so I could understand the material. There are no lectures so you basically learn on your own and from your group. I think approximately 5-6 people dropped the course prior to the 6th week. The course load is extremely difficult, sometimes you may have several papers due each weekend and each paper averages 3-5 pages. There is also group work and class discussions due every week. You are told to plan on 17 hours of study a week-- well, I don't know where they came up with that answer. I spent all my time off basically reading, researching, or writing.

    The second course,Research, I thought was going to be a little easier, but I was wrong. There are less papers due each week and the reading is less, but the assignments are very time consuming. Again, no lectures just reading and group work. Just starting the 5th week of this course and 5 people have already dropped.

    Not trying to dissuade anyone; I plan to try to "stay the course" myself, but it's difficult. I don't want everyone thinking this is a walk in the park, because it's not.

    Please, if you have any questions feel free to ask
