    I am in the program and so far find it quite challenging. The first two classes were o'k, but now we are actually in nursing classes. You can PM me if you want more info.

    Hi, I head pretty much the same thing from academic advisement too but I've been pretty beat up from other online programs. The downside with online education is that if the instructor is well...not that fair or nice, the recourse is limited because the students' strength in communication is diluted through the internet whereas in a brick and mortar institution, the students are more of a physical force to deal with while in the classroom. Meaning, it is easier to discuss issues of concern in a group dialog and in person. But unless I hear otherwise, South U seems okay.

    Are there any current FNP students at South University? I am considering applying there but am having a very hard time finding any reviews about it ... would love to hear some opinions!

    I need to check on the FNP credentialing but I do not think its an issue. You can PM me if you want.

    I recently talked to a South University Advisor for the FNP program. He was informative and very helpful. I would love some feed back on the program. There's three I'm currently looking into.

    I tried to send you a message. I'm currently going through the application process to South and would love some more information. I'm still apprehensive about any on-line program and would love your input.

    Sorry cardnation, I just came across your post. We have just started the new term (Thursday). I am taking w classes so I can start my clinicals this coming February. So far, I can say I am impressed with the school. As with any online get out what you put in. The more your research and learn, the more stuff sinks in and you feel you are learning. The school allows you to "stagger" classes...start one then start another in about 3 weeks, or you can take two at a time. Clinicals are one at a time. I liked this school for three reasons: recommended to me by nurses I know who got their MSN (in other degrees), price (not so expensive that I will paying forever when I get out), and no campus visits (they send a representative out to evaluate you at your practicum site).
