    I will complete my PNP in december from USA and I havent had any difficulties. There are people in my class who complain but I find that those people complain about everything so I have learned to take all that with a grain of salt. Finding a preceptor has been the biggest headache because you are on your own in that regard. We do have students in Hawaii, Alaska, and Korea so it would be ridiculous to assume that a school in Alabama would have contacts in those areas in order to facilitate an internship. I would work on finding preceptors your contacts in your field of study.

    This is a terrible NP program. I completed 45 credits in the ACNP program and got to within a semester of graduation. I was working and doing school at the same time but maintained a 3.6 GPA. Instructors did not help students, there was no help with clinicals or any kind of support. You pretty much teach yourself. I was basically kicked out of school because a certain instructor did not like a paper I wrote. The paper was actually very good and original but was not formatted as she wanted. I was given a C and kicked out of school. All the work I put into the program did not matter. Very few of the class I was in graduated. They should let you know in advance that few people graduate; it would save expense and work for nothing. The program is a rip off-avoid it.
