Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Psychiatric-Mental Health)

I would not recommend this program. It is full of busy work without any meaningful instruction- at all. It was least expensive I found but there's an adage that goes along with that. I graduated. Were it not for what I learned during my clinical rotations I would not be prepared at all.

Chose this due to the "scholarship" award, was told several of MSN courses I had already would transfer in 8/18 but was not given the final decision until 1/26/2019 after already retaking several courses I already had, this was disheartening to say the least.

Powerpoints look like they were assembled by a fifth grader, the instructors claim to want to help you succeed but are incapable of putting together an intelligible assignment. The clinical programs are so confusing that 3 weeks into a semester, few have started... Read More

It was a great program. I was able to complete most of my courses online, which allowed me to do my course work at night (I was working full time, too). Professors were nice, helpful, and knowledgeable.
