    I have almost completed my application at UC, and I was wondering how long it took for them to notify you of your acceptance? Let me know how you like the program and how things are going for you!!!

    Hey! It took about 3-4 weeks. I was accepted into winter 2012 (January) but since a seat became open for June 20, so I'll be starting in over a week! Their enrollment advisors and staff seem nice but their financial aid dept was rude!! I explained that I was supposed to start in winter, got moved to June and was trying to get my loans and stuff ironed out. They got it all done but they are hard to contact and not the most pleasant. Overall admission process was great. They'll send you acceptance via email. I'm doing distance learning. Is that what you applied for?

    Congrats evansc1!!

    It looks like there have been a few other discussions about UC's online programs and I have applied for the Spring ANP program beginning in Jan 2012 (submitted my app the last week in May), and as others have stated in several threads, I'm a bit nervous about finding my own preceptor. I thought about going my local FL department of health out patient clinic, has anybody done this with success? Can anybody share who they have asked and been successful with?

    In addition, how long does it take to get your acceptance or denial letter? The admissions counselor said it could take up to 12 weeks?

    I really appreciate any and all responses!

    Thanks!!

    DialysisBSN, I was told by the admissions counselor that it would be approximately 3 weeks before I would hear anything. Hopefully, you will be hearing some news soon. Do you work in a hospital? I just asked several NP's at my hospital if they would precept me. They have all been really helpful and agreed to help in any way they can. Good luck and let us know how it goes!!

    evansc1: Hi there! I'm desperately trying to find someone who is currently in the UC MSN program. I"ll be starting their online FNP this August, and wanted to gain some insight to how school and work will balance, along with the preceptor challenge. Any help will greatly be appreciated! Thanks!

    Do you still need help/advice? I am in the program and am on my 2nd term of clinicals set to graduate April 2013. I have positive and negative to say so if you still want info let me know. I am new to this forum so I am not sure if I will be messaged or if I have to come back to the same board to find replies.

    I recently graduated from University of Cincinnati's distance learning program. I was previously an RN for 4 years before applying for their FNP program. The price for the program was reasonable, but the program offers little to no help on finding clinical practice. I was lucky to have connections and find preceptors, but my paperwork was often last minute and one of my clinicals in particular was pretty useless, and only filled the needed number of hours. If you are a motivated person and are able to set aside time for your studies and can complete tasks on your own, I would recommend a distance learning program. If you do not have much clinical experience as an RN or other health professional, a brick and mortar school might be better for you, because your clinical experiences are more closely monitored. I have mixed feelings whether the program prepared me for my boards. I am a fairly decent test taker to begin with, and upon graduation, I studied from several sources ( Leik's, Fitzgerald, and online practice questions). I did pass my AANP the first time, but part of that was from having previous RN experience. I had several professors whom I felt connected with ( even through the internet), but for the most part, I have little to no sentimental attachment to the university or the program. Good luck with whichever school you decide to attend, but make sure to get clinical sites locked down as soon as you can!!!
