I am in the new program and I passed the pre-assessment with minimal studying. Most of the first class is stuff that was barely covered in my BSN, so it is mostly new to me. Lots of statistics and research methods. It takes more studying and reading than I expected. But I like it so far. It isn't an easy breezy program. It is challenging, but I like my mentors and they seem very interested in helping the students succeed. I waited to get into the new program and I am happy I did. We all have our own opinions, and to each his own. Just my opinion of the new program.
