I am currently working as an ICU nurse and applying to some ACNP programs at this time. I feel that I would prefer an on-campus program, but I have do have some interest in the online AG-ACNP program at UT Arlington due to its flexibility and the ability to continue to work full time. Although, I do have some concerns with attending a fully online program for this specialty, such as is there adequate skills training/simulations for procedures such as intubations/central line placements? How can this be done if the program is fully online? I understand there will be clinical hours done in the hospital setting, but what about skills training in the academic setting? Is there anyone that can weigh in on this? Much appreciated!
