I just started Grad school this fall. I applied to EKU and a bunch of other schools. In my research including DMs with people here, it seems that EKU is not an "easy" program, and the person I spoke with on DM stated that the staff didn't have much sympathy in regards to helping students that were struggling with family issues etc... I didn't end up going with EKU because I was not accepted for admittance into the PMHNP program, but I probably wasn't going to accept if I had got any offer just based on the reviews. I'm not advocating one school over another but I went with a private school, they cost more but generally they are going to be much more likely to work with struggling students. Also, a big factor in choosing was board pass rates, EKU I believe has 90% or 95% pass rate, which is strong and means the program prepares students for the board.
