  1. 0
    Hello! I have been accepted into the MTSU FNP program with my classes beginning this summer. For summer, 2012 I am taking Advanced Patho/Health Assessment/Pharmacology.<br>
    <br>
    Does anyone have ANY experience with this program or information? Since its online, I know NO ONE and would really appreciate any information that can be shared.<br>
    <br>
    Thank you!

    In A Page Signs and Symptoms by Kahan

    In A Page Ambulatory Medicine by Kahan

    These helped me with my SOAP notes:

    How is the program going? Do you have a lot of papers to write? Are all your tests proctored ? How are the clinical assignments going? I heard some people have to pay to have a preceptor. Any thoughts would be awesome! Allicat130@gmail.com

    Lots (and lots and lots) of papers. Definitely Proctored tests.

    A lot of learning things on your own. That's why those books were posted to help others.
