Hello, I’m interested in getting more information about UT Arlington’s online accelerated postmasters AGACNP. I have some concerns because I heard there are no professors, and the classes are managed by “coaches” from Academic Partnerships who use class content from the actual professors in the on campus program. Sounds weird to me. So I’d like to hear from folks who have attended the online program. How was it? Any regrets? Would you recommend it?

 Thank you.

Hi, I'm in the post master's fnp program. I've only got a few classes left then clinical.  So far the program has been good. The 5 week courses are kinda tough tho. So much info crammed into a short period. I chose UTA because I was looking for a brick and mortar school that had a good  reputable program but I wanted the convenience of online. There are usually 200 online students per class so there is a professor who is over the entire class and then they put you into smaller groups with a coach. The coaches are usually NPs. We all get the same information. It's just easier to contact your coach for concerns. Imagine if the professor had to post grades for 200 students and reply to emails.

Thank you so much for your response. Yours is the first positive review of the online postmasters program I’ve seen. Almost everyone I’ve talked to has complaints from feeling like the unwanted step-child compared to the on-campus students to dealing with disorganized instructors. Made me take a step back. Maybe the acute care side of things is where the issues are? Who knows but the feedback wasn’t encouraging.
