Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) FNP program...any info to share?

  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!

    I know this was posted a while back. Hopefully, this can help other students.

    These books helped me through clinical portions of the program:

    Merck Manual of Patient Symptoms: A Concise, Practical Guide to Etiology, Evaluation, and Treatment by Porter

    In A Page Signs and Symptoms by Kahan

    In A Page Ambulatory Medicine by Kahan

    In A Page Pediatric Signs & Symptoms by Teitelbaum

    Family Nurse Practitioner Review and Resource Manual (3rd Ed) by ANCC

    I learned everything the hardest way possible. I hope these resources help others who are coming into the program.


    These helped me with my SOAP notes:

    SOAP for Family Medicine by Maldonado

    SOAP for Emergency Medicine by Bond

    SOAP for Pediatrics by Polisky

    SOAP for Obstetrics and Gynecology by Uzelac

    Differential Diagnosis Pocket: Clinical Reference Guide by Sailer and Wasner

    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.

    Clinicals are a lot of work. You juggle going to clinicals and getting evaluated by a preceptor, and then you come home to do weekly homework, exams, projects, extensive papers, and long SOAP notes. Some nights, I'm work on homework until I have to leave for clinicals. Its all worth it in the end.

    A preceptor recommended these books for those struggling with writing Soaps. I'm passing them along so they can help you during clinicals.
