    Hi,

    I will be attending SLU's Fall 2013 ACNP program. I will be going part-time so I can continue to work full-time. You should be receiving info soon on registering for classes, financial aid, etc.

    Anybody else out there going?

    Not much to tell you right now. They had my financial aid taken care of very quickly which was a relief. Right now I am just waiting to find out what my first two classes are going to be for the fall semester. Their online services seem to be a little convoluted but it probably will just take some time to get used to them.

    CC-RN-EMTP, what program are you attending? Is 2 classes/semester considered part-time? Have you heard good things about the school? I'm going in kinda blind at this point and would like some feedback.

    Thanks!

    I am attending the Acute Care NP program. To complete the program in 3 years requires that you take 2 classes per semester (6 hours). This is also the requirement to receive federal financial aid. I have heard some good things and some mixed things about the program. I chose SLU due to the need to only travel to the campus once during the program. Most other programs require numerous visits. I also am familiar with SLU from having lived in St. Louis for several years and am familiar with their reputation. Several months ago I had an opportunity to discuss the program with someone is is very familiar with the program and is a recognized leader in nursing & critical care and he endorsed their program and mentioned that it is more about the student than the particular program.

    Thanks for the info. I am just now applying for Spring with a deadline for everything Sept 1st. Do you feel confident about the program? I am nervous but it sounds like the ideal program for me. Thanks for any details you can add!

    Im in the ANP program. Im taking nursing research, patho and health promotion. I work full time (3, 12 hour shifts) and have an 18 month old. My son is in daycare 4 days a week so that I am able to do homework on my days off. Patho is a lot of work. There is a lot of studying. I think I study about 90min-2 hours a night just to keep up with the reading. The other 2 classes aren't hard. Just busy work...papers, discussion questions, projects. The courses are easy to navigate and instructors respond immediately. I have a 3.89 GPA with my BSN and could not get unto the FNP program. So I got into ANP and will later add on a family certificate if I'm still interested. The curriculum is the same, only ANP doesn't have pediatrics.

    Holy Mackerel! That sounds like a ton of work. You are a busy gal to juggle 3 classes, FT work and a toddler. I have applied to the psych program. I can't believe you didn't get in with that high GPA. Did they say why? Are there tests per se? Proctored exams? I can't even envision what the material is like. IF I'm accepted it will be a HUGE undertaking for me; so I'm trying to learn all I can about the rigors of the program. Please feel free to PM me if you like. Thanks so much and all the best to you!

    Thanks, Im still pretty new to this site...not sure how to PM you? I clicked on your name and didnt see messaging there either. I'm pregnant with my second so I really wanted to get 3 classes out of the way as soon as possible. They said they only accept 25 students in the FNP program and it was tough competition. I spoke with the Dean and she is the one who suggested ANP, which still had openings. Patho has test. They are proctored. You need a webcam for your computer so they watch you. No books or notes for the exams. there are 6 exams and the final is not cumulative, thank goodness!
