I have come across some of your postings regarding Regis College DNP Nurse Educator program and I was wondering if you could provide me some insight.
I have heard that Regis is a good program to follow.. I am curious as to the clinical hour(s) requirements? In my Masters program I completed 100 hours where I chose my own preceptor and clinical sight. Is this the same practice for Regis DNP program? I am in a unique situation as I happen to live very remotely and will have to travel 2 hours in either direction in order to make placements happen. So, I am really looking for any insight or help I can find to shed some light. Also, too any tidbits or information regarding how the scholarly project works? I would love to hear what you have to say as I see your freshly graduated really and Congratulations to you!!
Hi Lyndsay, Sorry for the delay in responding. I don't sign on all that often anymore. Anyway, Generally we have about 400 hours of "practicum" that we are required to complete. It is really 1000 but everyone in my cohort was granted 600 hours from their MSN programs and we are not NPs. We are required to track these hours as we complete the program. I have not been very good about doing this. Hours can be anything related to your project or gaining information / data that you will contribute toward your project. Example; conferences, webinars, true continuing ED courses, any time you spend collaborating with others, some of the hours I spent on campus before Covid count etc. They are very good about accepting hours, so you could do alot of them at home. As far as the project goes, it is a little different with the hybrid program than how the online program does it but basically the idea is to do all of your assignments based upon your project. I believe the online program starts with the NU740 DNP project 1. They will go over all of the requirements of the project and how you should write your papers etc in the other courses based upon your project idea. Many people end up changing their projects as they go so do not get discouraged. Mine has changed from when I began the program it has been a God send. The faculty is very supportive and will help in any way they can. I am not done yet, another year to go. I am only doing one course a semester now, too much else going on. You can email me at email@example.com if you have any additional questions, I do not mind answering them at all and will respond much faster through email. Regis is a good program and works well for me. Best of luck. Efi
