I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I wanted to see what everyone things about going to GOVERNORS STATE UNIVERSITY for the NP program. Any inputs on instructors, clinicals, cost and online setting. Some have told me that going to NP program is not worth the $ and stress. I currently work at a clinics and also a junior high which is nice because it gives me weekends and Summer off. At the clinic I work registry. I love the flexibility of both jobs and I love what I learn from both. I love working with teens at the school and with the general population at the clinic.

Thank you in advance!

Back in the 90s, I took a calculus as well as 2 semesters of statistics at GSU. I had a great experience. They used to be known for having classes in the evening to accommodate working adults. I'm sure they probably have quite a bit online now. I had a good experience there. I know a few nurses who got their ASNs at community colleges (like Prairie State College) and finished their BSNs at GSU. I don't know their NP curriculum personally, but I did have a good experience there 25+ years ago. My ex-husband got his teaching degree there.
