Online nurse practitioner classes and clinicals are what you make it to be. You can be in the greatest school and find fault. This program is for the self motivated student to learn at a comfortable pace. It’s a lot of learning and you will learn if you... Read More want to. I was at a different nursing school - brick and mortar college for my associates and it was the same thing ( I had to study and learn foreign concepts). I had to learn what I needed to learn. At Maryville, I had a few rough patches here and there, but it’s normal when dealing with humans. I had some great professors and some ok ones, but it’s normal. You can’t have great all the time no matter where you go. Just get your clinical settings figured out before you start as that will be your greatest challenge. Don’t go if you don’t care about learning or serious studying to know important things concerning the human body. Thank you Maryville professors for pushing me and not giving me answers, but guiding me on where to find them. I loved everything I learned here and I feel like I have more insight into mental health. I can’t wait to pass my boards on first try and be one of the very best PMHNPs in USA. Thank you Maryville University!
I have enjoyed this program, and disagree with the negative reviews from my personal perspective. Any online program requires self-study. You get what you give, and I have not met a professor yet that would not bend over backward to help me out. I am... Read More enrolled in my next to last semester and feel as though I am prepared. I have spoken with other NPs in my cohort that obtained their degree at local brand-named universities and feel their curriculum mirrors the one at Maryville. The tuition is reasonable. I have Zoom meetings with professors at least three times a semester, and I have not been avoided when I need their assistance. They are always readily available. As with any online program, it will not be handed to you, and you must put in the work, sometimes extra work to be successful. I encourage students that have had a positive experience to reflect on a review here.
For those with a non-STEM bachelor and little experience in Software Development, this program offers what is necessary to understand Software Development. Can you self-prepare for the field on your own? Yes, but for those of us who require a classroom... Read More setting, this is it! Also, the program is not a Software Engineering curriculum but rather Software Development. The two can be easily confused and many in industry interchange roles frequently. Either way, you have a good chance of landing a job as either a Software Developer or Software Engineer.
