0Mar 12, '13 by WKShadowRN, BSN, MSNI'm finding the NursingCAS process tedious, but am considering the ENP program. I am attracted to the online option, the tuition, the dual offering in FNP and ACNP.
I'm dismayed by so much negativity, but wonder (and hope) that it has improved as this thread is old now....

4Nov 7, '13 by ROLOI am not in the DNP program yet, but, having done the MSN ACNP track (class of 2011), and holding four other degrees, I am thinking school is what you make it. I would encourage prospective students to be realistic. Grad school WILL require work. If you do not want to work, then do not do it. Do as much research about the school and specific program as you can, which is what people on this discussion board are doing, but do not stop here. Contact USA instructors by phone and email. USA staff were great in talking to me and answering my questions during my research process. I even asked instructors to give my email address to students who were getting ready to graduate, so that I could ask them questions --I got to talk to several graduating students who shared their thoughts on the USA experience, which I found very helpful. I have seen comments about USA being "self-taught," which I translate as "little help from instructors." If you are looking for a spoon-fed graduate nursing program, it is not USA, and I would be leery of any program described as such. Not that I think it should be mandatory, but I think nursing grad students working towards ADVANCED PRACTICE NURSING (NP, CNS, CRNA, MIDWIFE, etc.) specializations should be seasoned and have a good knowledge base. Be realistic. Be prepared. Do NOT give up.
