  1. RN to BSN online

    In preparation for getting a BSN, I am trying to gather information regarding online BSN programs. if you have links to what you feel is an affordable, online, no residency requirement program, please post 'em here. One program that I came across was...
  2. I completed a MSN in Adult Health but am not yet certified. Here is why- my intention was to become more familiar with to get a solid medical foundation and co-morbidities beyond that of RN and then pursue a PM in Family Psych. If I do not have...
  3. Brian Short News

    Absolutely heartbreaking for all!
  4. Still not sure if I will sit for ANP certification. I really do not like primary care and it sounds like more money I will have to spend on licensing and CEU's, etc. I don't see myself ever working PC and if I really wanted to I could take a few cour...
  5. Thank you for the feedback. I am starting USI's PM PMHNP program this fall. Still not sure if I will sit for certification in Adult health but I did talk to my advisor at USI and certification is not required for admittance to their Psych PM program...
  6. DNP trouble in sight? FNP graduation Spring 2015...

    UMDNJ is updating their psych to Family. It's not eliminated.
  7. ANCC to retire most popular, and eventually all, NP roles.

    It amazes me that many of the posts indicate a "just deal with it' attitude. No wonder the credentialing boards and those involved in the consensus model make changes so easily. It's a crying really is.
  8. Online Science Courses

    Hi all, I thought that maybe it would be good to have a sticky for online science courses. I am currently looking for an online/distance learning-- 4-- credit microbiology course. Of course it has to have a lab. I know that both ccconline and Rio S...
  9. I graduated from TESC. It is a great school but I wish there were more of an "community" for the students in the classes as the previous poster mentioned. The courses are challenging at times and the instructors are, for the most part, understanding ...
  10. Umass online course help

    I completed courses at UMass and really enjoyed it. Can't give names on the boards though but I can say I never had a problem with any of the instructors. Good luck
  11. Just wondering if anyone was accepted to USI. I applied and was accepted but not sure how it will work out because of the time line they have me on. Apparently, there are too many students and not enough instructors for the clinical courses. Sounds l...
  12. PMHNP vs PHMCNS murky waters scope of practice

    What age range can you treat?
  13. Frontier ADN-MSN

    I have been accepted into the FSMFN ADN-MSN program! :yelclap: I am very excited and also curious to know if anyone else is considering this school. The school has a wonderful reputation and while I am thrilled to be a part of it's rich heritage and...
  14. CNS and Clinical/Practicum

    Hi, I am interested in a CNS program and would like to hear from others regarding their experiences. Can anyone describe the details of their CNS clinical experiences, or practicum, as they are sometimes referred to? I am interested in adult health...
  15. Online Science Courses

    I have not had problems transferring courses taken with CCConline. Chances are that if they approved CC course they will approve CCConline especially since they carry appropriate accreditation. I completed microbiology with them and it was no walk in...
  16. Anyone get accepted into USI FNP for Spring?

    USI requires that you secure your own preceptor. I am not sure if they provide a list but I imagine if someone has a contract already in place they would give you that information. A caveat though, it seems to be getting increasingly difficult to fin...
  17. Liberty University CNS

    Anyone know anything about or have any experience with Liberty University Online in Virginia? They have an online educator track and a CNS that looks pretty good. I am interested and would love to know more about the program.
  18. Liberty University CNS

    How far along are you in the program? Are you doing the adult track?
  19. psych CNS vs PMH-NP

    As others have stated, it really does depend on where you live and what the state's nursing practice act allows you to do. Some state's do not recognize the CNS as an advanced practice nurse which is really a shame. I am hopeful that interest in Magn...
  20. CNS and Clinical/Practicum

    You mentioned that you have to do the same courses. Did the school require you to retake the physiology, assessment and pharmacology courses for the post master's?
  21. CNS and Clinical/Practicum

    Thanks for the information traumaRUs. I live in NJ and CNS and NP are pretty much the same. I also want to focus on primary care and am curious how many CNSs there are in this area. I realize to be well rounded all the spheres should be included but ...
