I am currently enrolled in the MSN public health courses. I am in my 4th class. It is discussion posts and papers weekly with a PowerPoint at the end of the class. Instructors are OK- not the most helpful but OK

The program is going OK - I am in pathophysiology right now and I think this is going to the hardest course.

Hi is there a problem if you want to transfer to another school for your DNP? I’ve been wanting to register but worried about that, any information will be greatly appreciated

It is going good. Writing papers weekly but not too bad

Looked into this program as well but I had a sort of weird feeling about it after doing some research...I'm by no means an expert when it comes to accreditation but I was reading about some people saying it's not as widely recognized as many other universities. The cost is tempting but I opted to attend a more nationally recognized university that isn't solely online.

Maybe a little late to comment....I completed the RN to MSN program from 2017 to 2020. My specialty is public health. Please ask any questions! Honestly, it all boils down to formatting, APA is another language in itself—so even if your content is amazing, if the format is not APA, you will not get a good grade.

How was the capstone & final exam ? I am in the public health classes right now and have 2 classes left until the capstone and the final. Just wanting to know how those went for you and what I have to look forward to getting this done...I cannot wait LOL.

My dear...you probably got through the worst part already! So, the worst for me was the practicum before the capstone...because of the pandemic! As you know public health...well, requires you to be in “public” but with all the restrictions, it was difficult. My preceptor and clinic canceled on me because it became mandatory for any students (grad/undergrad) to not do any clinicals (still the case here in California for most places). So, everything was virtual, but my professor was sooooo supportive and my mentor/preceptor too. I think you’ll be fine as long as you can address a need for a community in an online platform. I chose an educational presentation. I wasn’t able to partner with any organization to present it, so I built a website (wix.com) fo free (hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life).... From this class, I continued with the same subject for My capstone, so it was reevaluating and changing content/context based on community suggestions and comments. The final itself is an essay. You’ll have 4 hours to do it. As long as you stay within the guidelines of the new APA 7 ED, it should be fine. DM me if you have any other questions! I hope that this was helpful!
