Are NP online degree frowned upon?

  1. 0
    With the increase in NP online programs, would an employer hesitate to hire a NP that graduated from an online program? In addition, what is the likely hood of this 2015 doctorate law will be enforced? If this is enforced what if any effect will this have on the MSN NP in the job force? Thanks

    Here is a link to the ANCC Consensus Model. It really explains a lot. There is no LAW at all for the DNP, just a suggestion.

    I don't think they would even know you were online, unless your résumé shows you working in Maine, while enrolled in school in Washington. What i will say, and it has been argued here ad nauseum, is that online for profit diploma mills (i.e. walden, maryville, etc) will hinder your chances in applying against a traditional university.

    @hik9258 - may I ask what evidence or research you have to back up your opinion about "online diploma mills"?
    Thanks

    What does acceptance rate have to do with obtaining a job after graduation?

    Obviously an employer would select the best trained candidate for a position. A 98% acceptance rate means if you can pay, you can play, no matter your critical thinking abilities may be. We all know, very few go to Walden as a first choice. That is a safety school where people say, "if I don't get in to XYZ, I'll apply to (insert diploma mill), the board is littered with threads proving this. Have you seen Walden or Maryville ranked for the best education? I'll answer that. No. So who is going to get hired first? Walden or a University of XYZ? Lets not play stupid, we all know the answer.

    When you go looking for a job, after passing the certification exam, your RN experience will count for more then where you went to school. In the 7 yrs since I got my first post MSN cert, no one even cared where I went to school, just that I passed the certification exam.
