I hope you don't mind me contacting you. I start the ENP program at USA in Aug. I asked the program managers if they could hook us up with current/previous students for questions, but no luck. Anyways, one big question I have is the books. I have been looking at the required books list and am wondering what your experience has been...do you need to buy all the books?? any recommendations so far which ones are really "required"?? Also, how many hours are you taking a semester?? When I talked to the advisor, she said she really only recommends people take 2 classes a semester. I will be working full time at least through the first two semesters and am curious how you find the case load. Thank you in advance and hope you are finding your studies challenging and rewarding!
- 0May 2, '12 by led09211Hey there, I am in the USA ENP/DNP program and so far like it. But I prefer online learning over classrooms and lectures. And from what I remember when I was applying, it's much more affordable than the other programs. I have a friend in the hospital that I work in that did one semester in the UAB NICU NP program and is taking a semester off. She found it incredibly frustrating and difficult. However, I don't know her well enough to get a vibe on her stress levels, study habits, etc. My general view on nursing school is it's a lot of work, but not usually too incredibly difficult work. Anyways, not sure if that helps. Best of luck to you!
