Anyone starting at Columbia Fall '07??

  1. Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone else was starting any type of program at Columbia University School of Nursing this fall.....

    I'll be starting their Neonatal NNP program part-time while working full time and commuting from NJ...

    Looking forward to hearing from you all!

    All right! Finally someone I'll "know" when I get there this fall. What program are you currently in? When do you graduate? What do you think of the Masters programs in general?

    I'm doing a dual degree program (MPH) part-time, so in all likelihood I'll be here till at least 2010. I'm doing FNP with a subspecialty in HIV mgmt and probably also Integrative therapies. I haven't started my clinicals yet but I did do the ETP program and all of my undergrad clinicals were really great and I felt I learned a lot. My impression so far of the masters classes is the smaller, specialized classes are great and the big ones are horrible. So far my favorite class was Maternal/Fetal/Newborn physiology even though it was taught by the same professor as Adv. Phys and patho which I didn't care for, but MFN only had 30 students versus 160 in the others.

    NNP and PNP are 2 of the better organized programs in the school because the director is really on top of things. I like to do my own thing a little so for my tastes she is a little too involved but some people like that. And hey, you get a free Treo 700 because of it.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions
