    Each teacher wants something different and those that are lucky can get a hold of their teacher or their teacher is more cear about their expectations, although the assignments aren't. My teacher is very unclear. The first class was also unclear and confusing but the teacher was good about clarifying and answering questions. This second class the teacher confuses us more and then says we didn't do what she wanted. There is no consistency with grading, she will tell us we did better but give us a worse grade. We have all contacted the supervising teacher and have gotten nowhere. All I can say is I hope my new program is better and Maryville works this out for the new classes.

    I have been reading this thread for a while and I am waiting to hear if I have been accepted to Maryville for Jan 13 start. Does anyone else who is in the program have anything else to say about it? How's it going? Do you take tests? How many papers have you had to write? What is the reading like? Details please!!!???

    There's a huge amount of papers. No tests. Group papers every week, you work on one large project for the whole class throughout the class, little sections are due each week and usually a paper or something due in addition. Then discussion boards every week. There may be tests in Patho, I don't know. There's a lot of reading but I think most people just use it as a reference and don't actually read it all. Hope that helps.

    Yes that is really helpful! So do you like the program overall? Did the school assign you into groups to work with on assignments?

    Hello everyone, I got accepted to the program to start in the summer 2013. I guess that I need to start preparing myself of the idea of being busy. I am hoping to join your Facebook account. I am very happy to start the program.

    Hi everyone,
    I have applied to Maryville for the Adult NP program and I am still gathering the paperwork for the application packet. I hope to start with the April 2013 class. I would like to stay in touch with you especially once I find out if I get accepted.

    Hello,

    I finished the EBP class as well. The class was very busy and at times I was frustrated and tired of it. The syllabus and assignment tables or learning activities for my class were accurate; on the 1st day you will find a table of what is required each week . The instructor used the online class websites home page for "new" announcements, which included what was do that week or what was to follow for the next week.

    Advice for EBP/classes: try to work ahead, i.e. discussion boards. I would print off the discussion board questions for every week and I would write out my answer (for the current week of class and the next week) and then, when it was due I would simply type it out (fix or add comments).

    The content tab provides information for each week, be sure to look this over.
    Be prepared to read many articles---mostly research (EBP class).

    Hey does anyone have any info about the requirements for preceptors? I have heard of a lot of people struggling with this. I'm just wondering what is required for a preceptor to become approved by the university. Any info helps, thanks!!!

    I am looking around for NP schools and found that Maryville meets all my expectations. Just trying to get any information on how people are doing in regards to full time employment and this program. Is it doable?!

Patho has A LOT of work and reading.quizzes every week and leadership is kinda confusing since I haven't had a chance to speak with my professor. I love the school and format.
