    I am currently a student in UTEPs nurse clinical educator track and I am scheduled to graduate in May 2013. We have to take similar core courses with NP students also.

    What type of information are you looking for or what questions do you have?

    How were the core courses? I've been accepted to the Fall 2012 FNP.
    thanks,

    The core courses were not that easy for me but I still do maintain a 4.0 after taking 18 credits. It's really a lot of research and APA format paper writing. If you have that down, you will be fine. Good luck!

    The FNP/Np core courses are the following and are the same for all NP programs since the NONPF (national organization of NP faculty set the guidelines) and no in the clinical educator program I don't think you take these:
    Advanced Practice Core Courses (9 Credit hours)
    NURS 5303 Advanced Health Assessment
    NURS 5319 Advanced Pathophysiology
    NURS 5362 Pharmacotherapeutics

    I think this is what FuturFNP is inquiring about. They were not easy courses, esp Pharmacotherapeutics when I took it at UTEP it was taught by a PharmD.

    Actually sailornurse, you are incorrect. I am working towards the nurse clinician educator and I had to take the same three core courses you listed right along with the NP students. I can still be an NP in the future with these courses, I would just have to do a post-masters certificate with a couple of more courses plus clinical hours.
