Let's collate info on MEPN programs for people with non-nursing BA's or BS's

  1. Are you interested in fast-tracking it to NP status?

    The UCSF MEPN program is for people with BA's or BS's in subjects other than nursing. In fact, they emphasize that not having much previous health experience is okay. In three years you become a nurse practitioner. (Incidentally, I'm currently applying to this program for 2008.)

    I'm having trouble finding information on other such programs, if they exist.

    Please post such information here. I think it would be a great resource for people.:spin: Please include hyperlinks to the actual program page! It makes it so much easier!
