Maryville University Nurse Pracitioner Program
- 0Apr 20, '13 by dezzray22Hello All,
I am new to the allnurses.com. I was wondering if anyone can help me with this question.
I was wonder if any of you out there are in the Maryville University NP program that is online? I specifically want to know how you feel about the classes being online and if you feel like you are learning the material to be a competent provider. I am leery about attending an online program because I have never done online classes. Also how are they assessing you on you Health Assessment class if it is online.
I am currently also applying to a university that is not online but they only offer DNP and I am not really excited about going to school for four more years.
Any information and opinions would be very helpful

I would think that the health assessment coursework would be online and there are also clinical hours with a preceptor. I've seen other Maryville students post so I'm sure someone could add to this.
- 1Apr 23, '13 by smartypants31us]Hi. I attend Maryville. Im taking health promotion and advanced pathophysiology. Patho is a killer and the health promotion professor is a pain but im surviving.I start health assessment in the fall. Clinicals will be 80hrs H&P.I love Maryville. Its a new program so of course its glitches on our discussion board. Its expected. Overall besides my health promotion professor everyone has been great and helpful.

- 3May 4, '13 by caryrey02Quote from dezzray22Are you sure you have the right number to call? On my fist call I got a rapid response from an admission advisor and spent about half an hour on the phone with her. Then she sent me an e mail will all the info she had just given me on the fone and did a follow up call 4 days later. So far so good.Now I am having a horrible time getting a hold of anyone for information regarding applying. I have sent numerous emails and I have called several times. This is starting to look like a red flag to me...
- 2May 12, '13 by dezzray22I did finally talk to an advisor. She has been very helpful and I am in the process of applying. Now my only worry is getting a job after I graduate. I worry that a future employer may find an online Master's education unappealing as opposed to someone who received their Master's in a traditional classroom setting.
- 2Aug 24, '13 by little1rn10For the adv health assessment class, there is a practicum required with a preceptor (NP or MD/DO). Since the class is online, the instructor has to pass/fail you based on your assessment skills via a recording. I start this class soon and I believe that is the final exam.
Like you I was worried about health assessment. I had asked several times how the program will "check" us off on skills. I was told "through your preceptor", but I found out that it is via a recording like other online NP programs + practicums.
You can PM me if you have any questions.

I worked with several NPs that received their schooling online. They work for the Cardiology Dept., Surgery, Peds in a hospital/clinics.
You pass your board, certifications, and receive credentials then your resume/CV will have the same as any other applicant.Last edit by little1rn10 on Aug 24, '13 : Reason: Change
