Georgia State University RN-MSN Acute Care Nurse Practitioner/CNS Program

  1. Hello all. I am really interested in enrolling in Georgia State's RN-MSN ACNP/CNS program. I have an associates degree in nursing and a previous bachelors degree. I only have the two chemistry classes to take before I can apply. I have been trying to get information from the graduate advisor but she always seems short and snappy. If anyone has been through this program and can answer a few of my questions that would be great.

    The website states that there are two courses that are Georgia State specific prerequisites NURS 3010 and NURS 4600. When I checked the class schedule there is no NURS 3010 only NURS 2010 but it has the same course name. Which class is it and when is it offered? Are the two courses face to face or online?

    The website also mentions that an undergraduate health assessment course has to be taken if not taken previously. Does Georgia State offer this course as a graduate course or undergraduate course? The website states that the course is offered online but I can't locate an online section.

    Also, the advisor mentioned that I can't take any courses until I am admitted into the graduate program. Does this mean that the undergraduate classes will be covered by graduate school loans? The reason I am asking is because I am at my limit for undergraduate loans. I am trying to anticipate out of pocket costs and if the program is doable for me. If anyone has any information, please feel free to chime in. Thanks.
