    Yes, I plan to get in for the FAll of 2012. I'm trying to get everything together and sent it in soon.
    If you don't mind, I like to keep in touch with you as you progress a long. One major concern I have about the program is the clinical core classes prior to Practitioner courses.
    I asked USI how to learn advance assessment skills online without on hand practice. They told me that I learn that on clinical core courses. As my understanding for the conversation, clinical core courses are not only online lecture but also has clinical part. I need to find clinic to learn the skills.
    Do you know anything about this? I like to contact Tammy, see if she can clarify this for me.
    So, we need clinical not only for the last 3 courses, but also for the clinical core courses?

    Hi there...advanced health assessment has a clinical portion ranging from 65-90 hours depending on school...you must find a preceptor usually NP, MD sometimes PA and the school will have them sign a contract to supervise you. Good sites are primary care clinics, prisons....where ever you can be supervised to get a complete health assessment in....start looking for someone, this is the stressful part.
