    Liberty University MSN-DNP Program

    Anyone attend Liberty University DNP program? I’m an MSN-NP and seriously considering. I’m looking for feedback on the program. Did you feel supported? Good program? Reasonable? Good contact? Anything you can tell me I would love to hear.

    Home births gone wrong

    And the outcome would have been different had they known? Maybe not. Interventions also lead to issues and complications...but we try not to talk about that.

    Learning Spanish

    I've been looking at several myself and unsure which to go with.

    Home births gone wrong

    I don't think she has to be outside of midwifery care but....she's not getting a home birth! She may very well get a midwife in a hospital setting with great MD coverage but that's it. There's no way. I don't think you have to really approach it. I would give her names and they will handle it. You could also easily tell her that you aren't sure they will take her but maybe hey will and maybe they will consider her for a hospital birth. Not your responsibility to deny the care...let the midwife do it.

    Home births gone wrong

    Where is your stat that infant mortality is 4 times higher? I have never seen a reputable statistic that is that high.

    Home births gone wrong

    That isn't really a home birth gone wrong. That is a case of poor decision making. Safe home births are exactly that...safe and usually safer than in the hospital. If a mom makes a poor choice against medical advice it doesn't mean that choice is wrong for everyone.

    Acute Care Pediatric NP

    They don't do rolling enrollment. They sit and wait and look at everyone and make a decision. I believe I had my acceptance in early June when I went.

    Acute Care Pediatric NP

    The acute care program at Drexel is new. I did the primary care program. Not sure if you have specific questions I might be able to answer.

    I had a job before I graduated. I knew I only wanted peds so I wanted to ensure my education matched that. I didn't want to waste time learning about adults when j never wanted one as a patient.

    Check the policy....it all comes down to what the facility policy is.

    Drexel PMHNP - info from past students wanted!

    I did the Drexel PNP program. I'll try and answer questions but let me know if I miss anything. Once you hit the NP specific classes you will have an online class one night a week. The instructor is there and other students. We would have actual lecturers. We also have to go to on campus intensives. I feel my education was excellent. It was crazy hard. I heard that another program locally the students had no stress because it wasn't that bad. I've also heard people say they trust Drexel students because they know the education is there. Preceptors...it's a tough subject but i know we all found somebody.

    Is anyone going to drexel fnp fall 2015?

    Oh and I'll add I have a handful of kids and had a lot of family issues over the last several years (4 deaths) and had some medical issues...survived. It isn't easy...be prepared to sacrifice.

    Is anyone going to drexel fnp fall 2015?

    I live near you two just up 422 a little. I just finished the Drexel PNP program. I know a few in the FNP who graduate this year and I believe they are all very happy.

    Rutgers DNP Fall 2015

    Why wouldn't you just finish the Drexel program and do a DNP later?

    RN MSN programs..

    If you get the MSN and don't like their NP specialties...lots of places off a post masters certificate for the NP part. So once you have the MSN you can just head to a different school of need be for the specialty you want. Do make sure you get your NP from a school you want it from! See if they have in person session. Many schools do an on campus thing here and there with their NP programs. My program had one every quarter for 1-3 days. Honestly...I am very thankful for that on campus time. It was very positive.

    RN MSN programs..

    You have your RN? You just don't have a BSN? If you want to be an NP you need to first decide which type...family, peds (acute or primary), adult, neonatal.... You then need to look at schools that have the specialty you want...not all schools that have NP programs have all the specialities. Look at their requirements to get in. Do they require experience? Many, but not all, do. If you need experience...get it. It really isn't complicated. If you don't have a BSN you have to decide i you want to do an RN to BSN and then move on or try and find an RN to MSN. An RN to MSN will be harder to find. If you get an MSN in something that isn't associated with an NP program you can still become an NP. You then just look for a post master's certificate program. You will then just do the NP portion. So you can get an MSN in education...then go back and do a post master's certificate in an NP program.
