Hey guys/gals

It's been a long time since I've been on here, so howdy everyone! I will be starting Herzing Psych NP Program this January. I haven't been in school in a while and my traditional BSN program did not require much writing. My writing skills kinda suck LOL. How is the writing, discussion posts, teachers, assignments, exam for the program at Herzing? I do come with over 5 years in psych experience and I am anxious to start. Anyone starting and would like to buddy up? Any current students? Is the program doable? Tips, suggestions? When should I start looking for preceptors?

Thanks

I am 1 semester from finishing the program, and honestly, even as an alumni of Herzing's BSN program (on site), I would not do this program again if I had it to do over. I would have chosen another school. This is a newer program for Herzing online. The first cohort just graduated last semester, I believe. Most of the classes have been pretty much self-taught with hardly any or no teacher interaction. Tons of APA discussions, case studies, and you mostly get taught by Youtube videos. This program really has a lot of kinks that need to be fixed.

Hi I am also starting the PMHNP program in January 2023. I live in West Palm Beach, Florida. I have 7 years experience working in Psych and Substance abuse, I work closely with the Psych NPs at my current job. So I hope that will help me secure preceptors for clinicals. I read the previous Cohort thread from 2021 and 2020 to get an idea of what I will be getting into. Sounds like a lot of busy work but very doable. I work full-time 3x 12 hour shifts. If any previous students have any insight into the program please let me know. Thank you.
