Any former/current/future FNP students for GRU? Would love to hear some reviews about the program!

I just graduated from the program on May 10:) Now on to boards...

But, back to your question.

I really liked the program. Full-time vs. part-time status determines the speed of the program of course. I was full-time, therefore it took 2 years. A lot of your learning will be independent and you'll watch a lot of pre-recorded lectures and take notes on powerpoint handouts. This is how the majority of your studying will go. If you have questions, professors are very approachable and normally get back to you quickly. If full-time, you will not actually begin clinicals until your second semester. I think part-timers start clinicals their second year (fall after you start), but don't hold me to it. Also, it is important to note that I attended the Athens campus. I LOVE the faculty located on that campus. I had a harder time contacting faculty on the Augusta campus but the Augusta students didn't seem to have a problem with that. Either way, you'll have professors from both campuses as most of the material is on-line. For the most part, you can dictate your own schedule and study when it is convenient for you depending on your lifestyle. Just FYI: Dr.****, Dr. *****, and Dr. ******* are very helpful. If you have questions at any point you can shoot any of them an email and they'll get back to you ASAP. Best of luck and let me know if you have anymore questions.
