  1. Hello Everyone, I will be joining this March 8th, 2021 (PMHNP post master's certificate program). I am scheduled to take advanced patho and advanced pharma together at the same time. I work part time...are those 2 doable at the same time? Is it going to be crazy? I am totally OK with Bs but do not want to be crazy stressed (just moved so my batteries are a bit low). How many hours a week did you devote to each of these classes? Thank you and all the best on your journey.

    Herzing PMHNP

    Hello everyone, I will be starting the new PMHNP program at Herzing University in September. Trying to see if there is anyone else that will be starting the program so that we can connect. Since it's a new program, there is no topic about this specialty and maybe this can provide opportunity for potential students to discuss.

    Herzing PMHNP

    Hi Everyone! I finally found the school I really want to go to! I have applied to 3 other schools and backed out for this or that reason. There was just a bad feeling. This program has made me feel super comfortable from the beginning and they seem to be so organized which makes my nerves much more calm. I am super excited to start in November in the PMHNP program. Would LOVE to connect with other students in the same situation. Online classes are awesome, but would really like to connect with other students. in the same situation. I currently work inpatient psych 12 hr shifts and starting to network for preceptors now. I hear we start semester 3 with clinical so trying to stay on top of my game. Can't wait to hear from you all! I live in st Louis, MO btw. Where are you all?
  5. Hey everyone! So about two years ago, I posted that I had started the post-master's FNP program at Herzing. Well, one week into the program, I got cold feet and withdrew. Fast forward to three weeks ago. I have restarted the post-master's FNP program at Herzing and so far, it has been great! I am taking two eight week classes and had my pathophysiology class from my master's degree transferred in. These classes are fast-paced, but doable! I have one more didactic class to take in the Summer, then all that's left after that are my clinicals! The first clinical begins in May! I'm so nervous about it even though it is seven weeks away! If all goes well, I should graduate August of 2021! This time, I'm determine to complete this program and pass my certification exam the first time (though I'm not sure which exam I will take--leaning toward the ANCC, though:) Any else currently attending or plan on attending Herzing?
