    I am in the USA FNP program.....there is not one of the 120 people still left that would attend this program...Seriously. Please PM me before making the decision to go. Now I can't speak for the Psych classes--but can for the classes leading to that point.

    I too am interested in USA's DNP program.
    I am a licensed FNP in California, but felt pressured to have the "DNP" for my teaching job. USA seems to be the most affordable and since it is mostly on-line it suits best for my current lifestyle. Searching through the treads, there are students that absolute recommends USA, and those who does not. Without going into specifics, could someone just post some experience since I can't PM anyone yet. Thank you.

    Also, since I am a licensed FNP, how long would it take to complete the DNP program at USA, and does the school give advance credit? I searched in the USA FAQ and it does not address this question...and have yet to respond an reply e-mail from the school.

    To anyone that has started this program:

    I am a bit worried that psychopharmacology, genetics, nor biostatistics are not offered as part of the program. I want to make sure I am getting what I need to become a great FPMHNP. What are your thoughts? Is it covered in other courses?

    At the time my GPA was 3.5 with a BSN, 8 years experience as RN. My experience included working as a float in the acute care environment, tele, DOU, senior behavioral health, case management, psych adult locked unit. ACLS cert. I think the GPA requirement is higher now because there are so many applicants. What are your stats? Let us know and we can give recommendations. Also what are your goals? Why USA/which degree?

    I am a BSN nurse, nurse on med Surg for 1 year now, 3.6 GPA. I want to do Psychiatric NP but do not want to limit my opportunities, so I want to do Family Np first, then get certificate in psych. I will be happy just to get into a p-rogram at this point. USA seems very affordable and i've head great reviews.
