Searching for psych np programs (msn)!

  1. 0 I'm looking into online psych np programs. So far I plan on applying to slu but want to apply to others in case I am not accepted there. I'm having trouble finding online msn np programs that don't require you to travel to the school 5 times a year. Any one know any other programs I could look into??

    I think UND requires less traveling than that.

    Currently enrolled at Drexel but I am also looking at less travelling so applied to SLU and Wilkes University. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    If you are going to attend expensive online NP program, make sure they help with preceptorship. (esp psych programs) I know some online students who have difficulty finding preceptors after paying that much for tuition. Luckily, she finally found a preceptor but she had to spend time calling around and begging lots of people. That's why I advocate for in-state school even though it may require hybrid (combination of online-onground) or classroom. You have much better rotation experience this way, and you are not limited to what you can find. Online education is (to a degree) the travesty of nursing education (no comments needed- personal opinion).

    MHNP programs also vary as to how much talk therapy vs drug therapy based they are. I would imagine the talk therapy part would have some difficulties online.
