    Good luck!! I wanted to go to Drexel 2 years ago!! However, they want me to do clinical in the surrounding states only. So I ended up going to a local state school with on ground class because tuition is cheaper... Glad I did. Otherwise, I would have more debt now.. since we don't really get paid that well as an PMHNP anyway. And I don't have to look around for preceptors which are hard to find in my area.

    When I applied, the program director seems to care about me though

    Thank you! They've changed the requirement for states so I can attend. Are you working as PMHNP now? I understand the pay to be decent. I've heard there are ample positions available in this growing field. I'm excited!

    Do all of you who were accepted into the PMHNP program have a background in mental health nursing? Do they accept applicants with a more medical background who are interested in Psych?

    I was accepted and my psych experience is dealing with incarcerated patients. That's it! Good luck to you!
