    I am starting the Psych NP program in fall 2013 for Suny Stonybrook as well. Is that the same school you will be attending? We should become study partners if so.

    Good day bkennedy, I have a question regards to the emergency track that you are in. I just got accepted last week for fall, 2013 session. I think i chose the 11 semester track but i really want the 12 semester track. How do I change that? Again, the application, acceptance protocol is the most tedious of all the schools, Is that how the school is? Thanks a lot. I've been searching to see if I can get somebody in the program that I am interested in. Thanks for the positive comment about the program, at least....

    Tasha,
    I'm looking for an online Psych NP program and was considering USA because of the low tuition. I came across this conversation thread but it ends abruptly 4/2013. Did you ever go to USA? Does anyone know if this thread continues elsewhere? I'm looking for more info on this program.
    Thanks,
    Heidi

    Actually I do have more than a decade in psych at the master's non nursing level. USA is very affordable, but since finding this thread I am a bit hesitant to even apply. I'm looking at Gonzaga now, they appear to have a really solid, respected program. I might use USA as a back up in case I cannot get into Gonzaga and so am asking how their program functions now.

    USA is a great school. I began this Thread as an eager student awaiting an acceptance or denial letter (of which I was accepted) now I'm a Board Certified Adult Psychiatric NP finishing up my Family Psych DNP at USA. I love the school, and feel I should contribute to those just like me. If I can answer any questions for anyone out there, please let me know.

    I've seen some comments stating concerns about the professor who teaches some of the core psych courses. What is your opinion? A few have transferred into other programs due to these perceived problems. I'm concerned that I could start a program and have to transfer due to drama or a personality conflict.

    Well, there is a Professor that has a particular style of doing things (in my opinion). The first time for any person with a new Professor is a challenge. You will have to learn their style. You conform or you'll have problems-it's very simple. This Professor accepted No late work, no missed anything, no acceptable excuses, just by the book too the number. But I focused on the positives. The work is graded firm everytime, no one's excuses were acceptable, and you were guaranteed to have some to (rightfully) dissent in each course. The Pros is every course by that Professor had relatively clear expectations-
    "I accept No excuses no complaints, when you take a course taught by me, just be ready."

    You can have this type of mentality at any University and from any Professor. The question is, can you adapt, if only for a few semesters, to reach your goals. For some courses I focused on no distractions and valid disputes and got through quite easily with primarily A's and B's. For other classes, my focus changed based on the Professors needs and expectations. That's just life. If you can't handle the Personality you want be able to handle the work that comes afterwards. And trust me, people who shared their experience were probably correct, but will that be yours? Because it sure wasn't mines. That "Personality" is just another drop in the bucket for me. And I kept things moving, right along with the most of the class-. It is doable.

    I hope this helps. Whatever decision you make, let it be right for you.
