Graduation Year: 2019

The pros of my graduate program are that there is a lot of growth opportunities. Job search is not as challenging and everyone I know who has completed the program has successfully found their dream jobs and passion. The cons to my program is that it take 4 years to complete the program if you go to school full time. Another pro is that the environment you are in while in school really helps you focus and trust the faculty with any challenge you may have while going through the program. A God-centered environment has allowed me to open my heart to not only the people around me but be able to show my passion through my field work.

I am currently enrolled at APU for the post-master's certificate for PMHNP. One of the most positive aspect of this program is the school's ability to place their students for clinical rotations or internships. This provides great relief for me as I would not have to worry about looking for placement. Another strong point is the faculty's and graduate professional center's support and availability to meet with me. So far, I have not found anything negative about the program specifically. Although I wish the school offers the core courses at other campuses, not just the West Campus.

Azusa Pacific University San Diego Regional Center's MSN-Family NP Program has positive and negative aspects. One of the benefits is that the program enables students to still be able to work full-time while earning their degree. Students are required to take 1-2 classes per semester (depending on the semester) while only attending class 1 or 2 days a week. The school also assists their students with finding placement for clinicals, which is a great burden taken off from the student. The staff have earned their PhD or Doctorates while remaining as practitioners. The negative aspect of the program is that it often takes a few days or numerous e-mails to receive a response from staff. However, this is understandable since they not only teach, but are also working professionals. The San Diego Regional Center also has limited space for students. There is a patio in the second floor but due to building rules, students are not allowed to sit, eat, or congregate in this area.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

While I have made the most of my experience in the graduate nursing program at APU, I have been frustrated with the varying degrees of academic rigor. Some courses were excellent, while others weren't even worth showing up to - I studied for those subjects on my own.

I love the staff's willingness to help their students. I enjoy the small classroom sizes and the excellent technologies available. The only negative part of the program is the cost.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am new student, begun my masters program in Jan of 2014. So far I have had a great experience at Azusa Pacific. The staff are friendly and supportive in my transition as a student considering I work full time and I am a single mother of 2. I feel confident that I will succeed in this school and get the best education possible to become a nurse practitioner. At the time, I don't have any cons.

The advantage is that they provide a 4 year degree that allows you to become a professional starting at entry level for second degree students. The the disadvantage is that it is very accelerated and keeps you very busy and you can't work. Therefore, you must be financially prepared for 4 years.
