  1. Walden University Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

    Hey! I was wondering if I could pick your brain about the PMHNP program. I won't flood you with questions unless you're up for it.
  2. What happened to all the Walden Haters?

    Hey! I've seen some of your other posts over time while searching about Walden. I'm 99% committed to starting my PMHNP MSN with them in February. I have to file my FAFSA yet, but that's really it. I had previously taken 4 FNP courses at the school I ...
  3. Should I get my MSN first?

    Hey! So I had begun an online FNP program at the university where I got my accelerated BSN. After 4 classes, I started to realize that FNP wasn't what I wanted to be. I really want to be a PMHNP. So I've been talking to Walden U, but they've denied t...
  4. Chamberlain FNP program

    Hey! Did you go through with the FNP? Are you still working on it? I'd love to hear follow-up regarding your experience.
  5. Olivet Nazarene University ABSN Program

    I'm not sure about your TEAS exam. They administer 5 now, so my guess is that you'll have to re-test. The per-reqs (off the top of my head) are A&P 1&2, Nutrition, Abnormal Psych, Statistics, and English...I'm probably leaving something out, ...
  6. Olivet Nazarene University ABSN Program

    Hello. I am conditionally accepted for the fall session. I was wondering if any of you are farther along in your journey?
  7. ADN or BSN

    I'm at about the same point that you are in the process. I, too, have less than stellar credit and I'm looking to take out probably 13,000 in private loans for the first 12 months of the program. I keep looking online for scholarships but I can't re...
  8. ADN or BSN

    Hm. I had replied the other day, but my post seems to have disappeared. I am going with Olivet Nazarene University's (Oak Brook campus) accelerated BSN. I have not personally heard that the hospitals are moving towards Master's degrees as an entry ...
  9. ADN or BSN

    Thank you to everyone who has replied. I have decided to go with the accelerated BSN. Even better- I found out today all my ducks are in a row, so to say, and I can begin in May instead of in the fall! I appreciate everyone's input.
  10. ADN or BSN

    Thank you for your reply.
  11. ADN or BSN

    I'm currently an LPN. I was waiting for a spot to open in a 2 year RN bridge program. Because I hadn't heard anything, I applied to an accelerated BSN program here in IL (16 months to complete) and was accepted (contingent on my financial aid), and t...
  12. Demand for LPN in Chicago?

    Uh, LPNs *are* nurses. :) Did you mean are they in as much demand as registered nurses?That being said, I have never had trouble securing a well paying gig in Chicago (and the north shore area) as a LPN. I do not choose to work in a long term care f...

  14. Foley Induction?

    I definitely hope my experience will be similar to yours. Thank you for sharing it with me...makes me feel better!
  15. Foley Induction?

    yay! Thank you. I was curious about whether I might be sent back home if it doesn't 'work' right away. Thanks for your answer.
