Anyone with experience in the past or current?  Havent' found a lot of reviews just checking to see if anyone has looked in to their program. Website state 100% board pass rate, tuition is good at 828 credit hour due to a ANA discount or around 1100 for no discount.  I believe there are 3 on campus intensives in total, the rest is online.  Any experience?

I am currently in Drexel's Dual Pediatric Primary and Acute Care NP program. I have been very pleased thus far. I am in the 3rd quarter of my first year and most of the course work is MSN material and papers. Every MSN student takes the same courses the first few quarters regardless of concentration. I have had great professors, their rubrics are straight forward and they grade by them. So it is pretty hard not to do well when they tell you exactly what they are looking for. I work full time, so it is a lot of work to keep up on, but doable. I also live in NC and plan to do all my clinical work here. They require 3 OC intensives that start your second year and clinicals don't start until the summer quarter of your second year. You will be responsible for finding your own clinical placements, which is the only downside of the program in my opinion.
