    Kennesaw State FNP program

    Hello to all, I'm in the process of completing my BSN this spring and really want to jump right in and begin a MSN program with a concentration on FNP. One program that has really caught my eye is Kennesaw State's FNP program. The program seems ideal and I love the fact that it is offered every other weekend. My concern is, I hear it is a very completive program (they only take 25 students). I would love to speak to former or current students to ask how you prepared for the application/selection process? Is the program doable with working full time? Did you have a good experience and feel the program adequately prepared you for practicing as a FNP? Thanks in advance to all who reply.

    Ohio University RN-to-BSN Program

    This thread has been an awesome resource for me as well. Quick question, has anyone taking Intro to Music Therapy during the winter intersession? I need to take 6 elective credits to graduate and I'm looking for a course that is an easy "A".

    Anyone work for OptumHealth / UnitedHealth Group?

    Hi, I worked for the company and although the pay and benefits are good (around $65,000/yr) the work and expectations are unrealistic. You're expected to met a quota as far as the number of members you enroll in the case management program and then you have to show how you were able to make an impact on the member's health based on your teaching, education etc. Pros 1) Office setting, usually no weekends, holidays or late nights but from what I'm hearing from friends that I know that still work there, that's changing. 2) Some locations allow you to work from home after adequate performance is seen in the office. 3) UHC/Optum is know for compensating their employees well. You will and can receive spot bonuses, raises etc. but again if you meet the required metrics, quotas/goals. Cons 1) Unrealistic goals 2) Computer screen shots and calls are monitored and are throughly scrutinized. Calls are evaluated based on call tone, manner, professional etc. You receive monthly evaluations on your call and suggestions for improvement. Even when you follow the suggestions, it's still not good enough. 3) Things change constantly from management to policies. Overall, not a bad company and I've considered returning but NOT to Optum. Other areas I hear are not as stressful. Good luck on whatever you decide.

    Does anyone attend Alfred State University??

    Don't get overwhelmed. I felt the same way when I saw the packet. You only get tested on 5 skills but they're randomly selected. I know the skills lab instructor that tested me has left but I've heard good things about the new one. You are allowed to make some errors and still be successful. Just review the biggies (medication adminstartion IM, PO, SQ, dressing changes, Foley insertion, sterile field etc.) Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Telecommuting Positions

    I applied to mulitple positions for insurance companies. I received a call back about two weeks later and was offered a UM work from home position. I start this Monday. United Health Care, Humana and Wellpoint are just a few off the top of my head that offer work from home positions. Good luck.

    Alfred State Nursing?

    I graduated May 2010. The program in very intense but the professors are caring and committed to seeing the students pass. They're usually five exams and then a comprehensive final for each nursing course. They're quizzes and clinical work is graded. Overrall, great program. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Ohio University RN-to-BSN Program

    It seems that the nursing courses for the online program will not be affected by the conversion to semesters from what I've been told.

    Does anyone attend Alfred State University??

    Hi phoenixlady2011, You should receive a skills packet for Nursing 1 and 2 that explains in detail all the skills step by step and what is expected from you. They randomly select 5 skills from the Nursing 1 and 2 skills packet as part of the challenge exam so what I received may not be the skills you get. If you have not received the packet, go ahead and request it from the school's secretary, she can email it to you. Let me know if you have any more questions. Good luck!
