So I have ready plenty of negative comments about this school/program but I am wondering if most of those opinions are old or if things have changed with South University.

Are there any recent graduates of SU MSN FNP program?

Any current students?

Any soon to be students?

What is the general consensus of the online South University MSN?

Thank you

I recently graduated from the school like Saturday. I'm sure you will hv a hang up about any program. You hv to put in work. I tested three weeks ago and passed first try, aanp exam. There was a lot of busy work, discussion posting and responses and timed quizzes and exams during clinical course classes. Overall I think the program was ok.

Thanks for the response.

Did you work through the program? Do you mind telling me what state you live in?

I bet you do.

How much did it end up costing you? About $35,000?

Can you tell me 3 things you didn't like about the program?

Appreciate your feedback.

No problem, maybe a lil less than 35. First thing I didn't like was how they wanted us to complete some of the work during certain classes, they used external websites and sometimes these sites didn't work so don't ever wait until the last minute to attempt to start on somethg. Second, like I said before there is a lot of busy work and it can seem overwhelming at times but doable, just have to pace yourself and stay ahead. Third is a compliant many of my classmates had, be familiar with APA format, professors will kill your grade bc everything has to be in APA, they really make sure you follow this format, looking for articles and finding ones to apply to whatever you are writing can be time consuming also. Once during the program the cost of the credit hours increased I didn't like that. I felt like it should have stayed the same as when I started. Whenever you are communicatin with counsellors, your advisors be very diligent sometimes it takes forever to get a response. Finding preceptors is a task many students run into. The school can send you a list of preceptors previous students have used and I was able to find one from this list so request this from the academic advisor. This was the hardest part of the program honestly. This can be discouraging at times. I know I had to make hundreds of calls to find mine. Start this early bc I ran into the problem of preceptors already have had students months in advance. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions

Yes, I'm a graduate from South University I attained my Masters in the Science in Nursing FNP. I went to a brick and mortar campus. The campus worked for me and South has a very nice program.

*Following* - I start this program in October. I'm a mom (of an 8 month old and work full time). Praying this is doable. I want to do it now before ANY baby #2

Hey, I am in the middle of admissions to the program -- possible October start but probably January will work out better for me if accepted. Can you tell me how the admissions process went for you? What was your GPA? you can PM me

Well, I got accepted to South for the FNP program. I am still not sure I want to do it though. Anymore feedback out there?
