TWU Anyone?

I’m curious if anyone is in the online FNP program at TWU (Denton), and preferably further along than the Summer 2020 cohort? I just started the program 2 weeks ago, and so far I’m really not pleased with what I see in the program, and I would like to get input from someone further along in the program.

1) In the orientation course they told you not to submit your discussions via attachment, but the Canvas system is literally so problematic with APA formatting that we are now being told to do that, after being marked off how many points for 2 weeks for errors in APA formatting?

2) It’s difficult to gauge what the teachers want... we are days away from week 3 and I only have one actual discussion graded out of 3 for the first week. Is such tardiness in grading standard?

3) I’m not new to online classes, so I’m a little dismayed at the format (too click happy with very minimal content), and literally no added value from teachers as it’s just PowerPoint slides from the publisher. Is that the norm?

Hello! I was just accepted to the Spring 2021 program and was wondering your opinion of the program or if you've received answers to your questions listed above.

I am nervous about this program mainly because I do not know what to expect or the reputation of the school. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi! I was also accepted into the Spring Program for 2021. I haven’t found much information online. Have you made any further connections?

Hi! Maybe we should start a FB group? TWU Spring 2021 FNP?

Yes, that would be a great idea. I don’t have FB, but I can re-activate it. ☺️

Perfect. You can Pm me your email if you like and I can let you know when I’ve started the page. I’m on my way to Austin for an out of state move. We arrive tomorrow after 9 days of driving with little kids.....shew . I’ll start on the FB group by end of next week and report on Allnurses. 
 

actually, I just started one from my phone. I will add pictures etc. later this week. Here is the url:

OK, great. Will do. I live in the RGV & Austin is about 5 hours away. It’s nice there.

Hi @ICUyall . How is it going with the program? How are you liking it now? Did it change for the better? I am thinking about applying so would like some feedback please! I hope you are doing well!
