URI Graduate Program?

  1. 0
    Hello all- I'm graduating with a BSN from NY in May and I'm debating about where to work when I graduate. I'm from RI and I don't know if I should come back. If I stay here (I don't think I want to) I can go back to get my NP for free! Hospitals in RI only offer like 2500 most for tuition, but claim it's enough to go to URI. Does anyone have any advice or know anything about the NP program at URI? Any info would be helpful- thanks!

    Hi Lauren,
    I will be starting the Graduate Program at URI this fall. I will be in the Psych - Adult CNS program. I graduated from their undergrad program in 1994 - felt I got a very good education. It is very difficult to know how the program "stacks up" against others (at least for me). Anecdotally, I hear good things. I also applied and was accepted to Yale's program (I live in Westerly,RI) - agonizing decision. I was giving Yale more of a "chance" in that I had gone up there twice and talked with the profs - no doubt, they have a great program. Went up to URI 3 days ago to meet with the head of the grad psych dept (who I knew from my undergrad days) and left with no doubt that URI was a better fit for me. I feel very good about the psych program at this point. Can't speak to the other specialities but I would guess that they are respectable at the very least. Cost - about $335 a credit for instate.. not too bad. I will be going part time as I have to continue to work 4 days/wk and so it will take me 3 1/2 years to finish. Tuition reimbursement at my hospital is $2200 a year - will cover a good deal of the cost (not all). Hope this has been helpful - any more questions, just ask!

    Good Luck!
