This is an old thread but I want to chime in. Online school sucks and the one I am going to do not have lectures just tons and tons of materials that I need to read and discussion board and case study with groups. The clinical is in person but and there is a clinical preceptor but there is no discussion of any cases you see in practice, only that she corrects one soap note every 8 hours of clinical. If you learn through audio visual materials, online school is not for you. For my first test in Adult I, I studied the school textbook, Fitzgerald, Liek, Hollier, Barkley and read through FNP guidelines books. It is too much! The lack of guidance is frustrating and challenging and I am at the end of my wits that I regret going through an online program. I am studying constantly and then I have clinicals and that is also frustrating because the practicum occurs while learning the didactic making a NP student quite stupid especially when one follows an MD. This is a nightmare.
