    The clinical schedule was sent to our neu email. It also said that our lab schedule will be given to us at orientation.

    How are things going for Those of you who are in the program?

    Hi Celticsgirl17,
    The program is really fast paced, so it's important to be organized and self- disciplined. I would suggest learning medical terminology, dosages, and investing in a NANDA book beforehand. It wasn't required but you will find it VERY useful. I cannot comment on clinicals because they do not start until next week, but the placements this semester are really good. Our cohort has lab every Saturday and exams Wednesday, the first is tomorrow.

    Thanks Cm401! Thats is really helpful! I am starting in Jan and I want to do as much as I can to get ahead... I ordered some books online including the NANDA book so I can get a head start. Any other advice/info that comes up as the semester goes along would be greatly appreciated!

    Is anyone else starting in Jan? My name is Shauna... I cant wait to meet everyone!

    I'm starting in Jan. Im nervous about the 20 credits that we need to off-load during our first semester.

    Me too! I think ordering some books and reading ahead will be helpful. Also brushing up on medical terminology... I got one of those "For dummies" books on dosing and getting math skills freshened up. I work at a hospital as a tech so I have been asking questions left and right and getting involved on as many things as possible... hoping it helps!

    HI - I just quit an associate's degree program because the instructor was too sarcastic for my tastes. Is this typical behavior for clinical nursing instructors or are there some institutions that actually have teachers who encourage their students? I got into Northeastern's direct entry MSN last year. Should I reapply? Thanks for your input.

    Hi everyone! My name is Kristen and I start NEU DE online on Jan 7th. I already attended prep day and orientation is in a month. Already ordered scrubs, stethoscope, etc. Plan on buying shoes at like payless lol. I still need to get the lab kit. A little worried about the book list. Should I order them all now?
    Just wondering if anyone from previous cohorts had any advice/comments about what they have been through so far? Anything is appreciated! :-)
    If anyone wants to chat, feel free to email me at !

    I just disovered this program. I understand it just started this year (12'). It sounds great, but I'd like more details, (which are not on the website). I filled out the info form and was able to locate a direct email for a program admin, as I currently live in England. My husband is active-duty with the U.S Air Force, so I REALLY, REALLY need a program that can relocate with us--thus the interest of the program being online. We'll be stationed in AL for 1 year as of July 2013.


    1. Can this program be completed out-of-state? How often are the labs on-campus?
    2. When do clinicals start? Must be completed in Burlington or community-based?
    3. Can you just pursue the BSN component or are your required to go MSN and specialize?
    4. If you're required to complete MSN, are you able to specialize in a field other than admin or neo? I would be most interested in FNP.
    5. What are people's thoughts on the cost of this program? Each phase BSN and MSN is $50k+. Ouch! Are scholarships offered? Good finiancial aid for those that already have a Bachelor's? (Big problem I ran into with other programs).
    6. Anyone currently going through this program? I'd like to hear more feedback on what the program is like.

    Hi the program is online. But you will need to live in Ma to complete it. You need to be available for clinical in MA and exams are not online. lab is one day a week. I don't see how it will be possible to complete it from AL. Birmingham AL, UAB has a 2nd degree program you might want to look into
