    However, with an NP program you are doing more than having class discussion and writing papers, you are memorizing and applying information that you will potentially use for the rest of your career. Almost all of my NP classes have had exams, and I wouldn't expect anything else.
    My BSN and MSN degrees were 90% research papers. Very, very few exams. No memorization. Where are you attending your NP program?

    I am attending La Salle University in Philly. Your science classes should have exams, as should your clinical lecture portion, as those text questions would be preparing you for NP boards. I am assuming you were not in an NP program

    Well my program has consisted of both exams and papers to write. Of course in the core course (research, theory, a safety class) there was more paper writing and no exams. In the big courses the big focus is exams but we have a big paper due at the end of the semester (case narrative). I've heard that this is true for all the courses I have left (Adult II, Peds, and Women's health) except for Practicum of course. I don't mind the papers, I usually benefit greatly from learning the information researched. The papers are only a hinderance mainly because I am doing the full time curriculum which means I have three classes that require different papers due throughout the semester.

    Am currently in an NP program. Yes advanced patho and pharmacology had exams but those have been the only two so far. Clinicals include SOAP notes. All the rest are papers.
