Hey everyone!! I am currently in my 2nd semester in the program. It is a very organized program, and pretty strenuous. It's a full time program, and I work full-time, weekends only. The first semester was pretty easy with basic courses. This semester has been a beast with advanced patho, adv health assessment, and adv pharm. I too have been a nurse since 2005. I am in the FNP track.....I can't imagine doing a dual program!! And trying to work...I have a friend who does it and this semester has been very stressful for her!! But she's doing it! I had a 3.75 GPA; interview was with 2 faculty and pretty laid back. They do put a lot of emphasis on GPA though bc they feel its a strong indicator in how you will do in the online program. Nursing experience was pretty irrelevant. We have such a diverse group with varied experience. One of our classmates has not even practiced as RN and was accepted. Hope that answers most of your questions!!
