Hello all!

I'm looking for some input on online NP (MSN) programs. What programs do you recommend or not recommend? Pros/cons? Do all of them cost roughly $800 a credit hour? Thanks for your input!

No. Whatever you do, do NOT choose a 'for profit' school. Make sure the school is accredited, and try to find a program that will find for you, or at least assist with, preceptors for clinical rotations.

This is the state of NP education: ease, length, cost or some what up news report ranking that doesn't matter.

You forgot - mediocre GREs and/or undergrad GPA, little or no previous RN work experience.

WOW!. Thanks for all the input, Karens. If you didn’t have anything beneficial to say you could have just not commented. Or better yet you could have suggested a program instead of being so demeaning.

No one was demeaning YOU. They were making their observations on the sorry state of NP education these days.

And name-calling is never a good idea. Just because it is not what you wanted to hear does not invalidate the advice.
