University of South Alabama PMHNP


Does anyone have feedback on the condensed Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program at University of South Alabama? I'm thinking of applying for the Fall 2015 program. Thanks!

I have no feedback, except I too applied to the PMHNP program at Univ of So Alabama, for Fall of 2015.

I'm wondering if anyone else who applied has heard yet about their application status.

I also applied to EKU's program, and got accepted, but I have heard nothing from Univ of So Alabama yet, and I met the April 1 deadline. The UofSA program is my first choice, because of the timeline.

The Nursing CAS application process has been less than comforting- I logged into check and somewhere on the site it says they haven't received one of my transcripts (!?!?!?) I sent another via the old school and paid $40 for rush service. But I have to say...that I am only learning of this problem at this late date is crazy-making. I've emailed the school twice over the last 2.5 mos.

To their credit, they do reply and explain the decisions are taking longer than planned. I take solace in their not just sending me a "Declined" letter to shut me up ;)

But I'm anxious to know so I can make plans...

Good luck to you, and share your experience, if you will!

Hi Peacock,

I am also interested in USA, but their FNP track, could you elaborate to why you wouldn't recommend them?

Thanks in advance,

I think Peacock is stating that taking the condensed schedule is not a good idea.

No, actually I am referring to the regular schedule.

You can send me a private message for details.

There is a PMHNP in our area that successfully completed the program and found gainful employment. So, it must be legit. all I know..... Good luck!

Hey. What's the cost per credit hour?

Graduate courses taken online are $547 per credit hour. If you took in-person graduate courses at the school of nursing, it would be $938/credit hour at the out-of-state rate.
