    I am currently at SU getting ready to start on the final road...the actual NP classes in February. Whild I can't help with financial aid, I can try to answer other questions you may have.

    @ ihflanurse; thanks for response.I'm trying to get in touch with an adviser but so far no luck.How was your experience with admission and registration?

    Mine went quite smoothly. As a matter of fact, I still stay in touch with mine a year later! I don't remember exactly, but I think I got a telephone call or an email to set up a telephone conference. She basically answered my questions, asked when I was ready to start, then sent me all the information I needed to get started. Because I was going into the NP program, she also gave me the information required initially along with the contact of the clinical coordinator. I had wanted to start earlier, but wound up having to wait until the end of March to start classes.

    Hey Ihflanurse ,finally I start my application and need more documents to send. My advisor told me that I can start (FNP) on February .I'm planning to apply for financial aid. Are you applying for ANP or FNP?

    I am in the FNP program, but am now considering just doing the ANP. I have a few months yet to decide if I want to do the peds section or not

    Does South University bury their students with papers?
  9. by   lhflanurseNP
    All graduate classes "bury" students with papers. I have heard this from traditional and online students alike. I can say depending on the class, you are required to post 1 - 2 discussion forums per week and respond to at least 2 of your peer's posting in all the forums, and 1 or 2 papers per week. Most weekly papers are only 2-4 pages. Some require 1 final paper, max of 15 pages. Some of the classes with weekly papers become part of the final paper so as you turn them in and get your feedback, you make your corrections to the final paper. There was one "group project" class. Hope this helps.

    It does help. Thanks. How is the program going since you've started in January? Do you also work? How many hours a week so you put into school work?
