    I applied March 1rst and got my acceptance letter March 20th via email. Did you get a response yet? We should keep in touch if we are both starting this summer if you would like.

    I was accepted for summer 2013 adult NP. I am nervous about the statistics course as I was weak in that class in the bachelor program. Does anyone have any advice?

    I too will be starting the FNP program this summer Super nervous! Tricia, I have the luxury of having a contact in my hospital who is in her last semester of the program. I've asked her about the stats class (as I barely made it through as well). She told me its completely different. There are no formulas to memorize or ratios to work out. She said it was more like a research class and learning how to read the graphs and all of the confusing mumbo jumbo you read in a research paper. She said the patho class was probably the hardest class she had the entire time. However when she did it, they were still using the quarter system and said they had to move through very quickly. She's not sure how it is now with the semester system, but said it may be a little bit more managemable if it was drawn out more. P.S. She also works full time but says it is manageable (not sure if she has any children or not though). Said it gets tough in the last semester when you have work plus 24+ hours of clinicals but then again...its only a few months. Hope this helps.

    Oh what a relief. I was so worried about those chi squares again. Thank you so much for the feed back. Here's wishing us all smooth sailing.

    Also, Charlieblue, did your friend have any trouble obtaining preceptors? I have been reading a lot on here of difficulty due to facilities not having an agreement with U of C? Seems like if they have no current agreement they could just sign some paperwork if you have someone willing to precept? Do you know of any issues with this? Thank you. Tricia

    Fortunately I work for a teaching hospital (rather small in comparison to most facilities). I've actually had a few friends go through an online NP program and they didn't have troubles in finding a preceptor around here except for OB. There are no womens health NPs that I know of around here and I think (just assuming) that docs might be worried about liability?? I'm wondering how responsive a facility like family planning would be, I don't think anyone I know has tried that here yet. But the family planning in our county is run by an NP so that's something I'm going to try. I also know of a county (from doing clinicals for my bachelors) that runs a rural women's clinic that I'm going to try. I too really worry about finding preceptors...eek

    I thought of trying that also our Health Department is run by nurse practitioners. Good luck. I am getting more excited as it gets closer.....

    We start clinicals in may of next year. So I will probably start looking for some around June of this year. I work at a children's hospital so hopefully I have some ins. I'm nervous about finding some too.

    How was the first semester redvelvetloubie?

    I have read to start looking early by others who have posted in discussion forums on this site. I have had people tell me they will precept but I know there is no agreement with U of C but seems they could just fill out paperwork. I bet it can't be that difficult. Can't wait to get started.
