I am VERY interested in the MSN PMHNP program through UTA. I was wondering if you have started the program yet. If so, how are you liking the program? How many days per week are you in class? How long is the program?..... Sorry, I have a lot of questions.

Is the program @ The University of

North Dakota online or in person?

It's all online + clinical locally, with the exception of a week each year spent on the campus. Full time can be completed in two years, and part time in three years. In my opinion, it has the most impressive NP curriculum I've ever seen. Very intense and thorough. I would pick this program if I was considering PMHNP.

Psychiatric and Mental Health | Programs | Nursing and Professional Disciplines | UND: University of North Dakota

* I would check with your state's BON make sure this program is accepted in your state, and also check with the program to make sure that clinical can be accommodated in your state :) From my research, it looks like this program provides or at least assists students find preceptors and clinical placements.

Thank you so much for your response on the University of North Dakota. I have more questions.... I hope you don't mind í ½í¸€

1. So are you currently going through this program, or have you already completed it?

2.How much does the total cost come out to be? ..... Like, do you have to pay out of state tuition rates, since it's online?.... I keep noticing that with certain programs.

3. Did you have to continue to work with this program? It seems to be very involved (as it should be). I just wonder, if it allows at least enough time to work part time or PRN?

4. Do you have to work a certain amount of time as a RN, before you can be accepted into the program? I ask this because noticed this with some other programs.

5. D you mind me e-mailing you if I have further questions? If ok, if you can please give me your email then. í ½í¸ ☺ .....Sorry, it just has been overwhelming & difficul trying to figure out which program to choose, and it would be great to have a connection with someone that gone thru or going thru this program.

Thank you in advance!!!! ..... Also, so sorry that I have so many questions.

Did you finally decide on a problem yet? If so, where are you going and how is the curriculum? I'm in the process of applying and living in Maryland has limited my choices of online programs that don't cost an arm and leg that also has a decent representation. Thanks in advance.

sorry, Val984, I saw this post very late. I just started the program. So far I have taken 2 classes all online. From what I understand, some of the early courses are online, but some u will have to go to campus. At this point I don't know yet which classes require on campus visits. The classes are 11 weeks long. This is not an accelerated program nor is it an online program. If you are part time, it will take you 4 years and fulltime, 3 years. I don't know where you live but I live in Houston, and Arlington is about 3 1/2 hours drive. At this point I am reapplying to UTHSC at Houston for their PMHNP; it is online, shorter, less expensive but the tests are in class.

Yeah I might be too late with the reply but Ohio U is crazy expensive. I'm going to the university of south Alabama online right now and I live in ohio. I like it. Hit me up if you want any more info!

I also need help making a decision on which program to attend. EKU or Maryville U. I like the 8 wks coursework, but don't have any insight into their support system. Help, please!

Hi! I just started the PMHNP program at EKU. I was wondering how you liked it? Was the research project hard? And how difficult was the comprehensive oral exam? Any advice about the program in general ?

Hi there! I am considering going back to school for mental health np, and University of South Alabama is pretty high on my list. I would be so grateful if I could get your email address to talk with you about the program... Thanks :)
