Hello All, I am currently an MSN student at CUW completing my FNP. I am 2 clinical semesters away from graduating but I am somewhat disappointed with my program. It requires 240 clinical hours per semester, I must attend at least 7 hours each day two days per week. 25% of my patients need to be peds, and my school does not help with finding placement. In addition I have twice weekly email communications, weekly patient journals, 4 detailed SOAP notes per semester, 7-10 chapters of reading weekly plus 3 or more hours of online lecture on top of other assignments. All this while trying to work. I'm downright exhausted and it has taken a toll on my personal life. I know it isn't meant to be easy but are all NP programs this rigorous? What are your programs like? What are the requirements? How do you find a good work-life balance?
