  1. I have my MS from University of Maryland in Executive Leadership (nursing). I am interested in your satellite program for Nurse Practitioner Training. What is the deadline for your fall semester 2013? Can a gap analysis be done with my transcripts to see if some of my 600 and 700 level courses would apply to your program. I don’t need a degree, just a certificate. Thanks for your time.
