Walden University FNP ProgramRegister Today!
- by neuroguy123 Feb 28Hello everybody,
I'm interested in doing the FNP program with Walden University. Is there anybody in the program that could give me some insight as to how its going, reviews, evaluation of the program, etc.
I greatly appreciate it.

- Mar 14 by jreed4I am in my second term with Walden. I have been fairly impressed with the organization and guidance of this program. Its not too expensive or a diploma mill where the classes are too easy and a total joke. This program requires you to invest in your learning which was very important to me. And the philosophy of the school matches with my personal philosophy of contributing positively to the global community. Great program so far. Good luck!

are there any on campus visits involved?
- Apr 18 by jreed4There are no on campus visits required. You are required to find your own preceptor which was not problematic for me. If you have a good working relationship with providers at your facility they are a good resource to tap.

I'm between Walden and FNU. I like that Walden's costs include books. FNU is cheaper tuition wise, but will require 3 campus visits PLUS books (for the ADN to MSN, FNP). In the end, they'll cost about the same.
Waldens FNP program is new, which gives me slight hesitation.
- May 9 by thenursemandyI wish someone from Walden would comment....give us the 411 on this school. I've applied to Frontier but still waiting on Walden.
- Jun 18 by Deb-RNtoFNPI am in my second quarter with Walden's FNP program and I REALLY like it! I already had 2 Bachelor degrees, one a BS in accounting and the other a BSN. I hesitated as well about going through Walden, with it being an online program.. I am learning so much. My professor's all have doctorates, and seem to be very well respected. I have been most impressed and am very happy I went with this program... I had looked at Georgetown very seriously, but it was very expensive. I don't regret my decision at all about choosing Walden. I have to say as well, it's all what you put into it...It takes time and discipline to complete an online program. I would definitely choose this program again.
- Jul 11 by mrvlegovI am in my 3rd quarter at Walden and really like the program for the most part. I transferred from another school and am much happier at walden. The education is very good and it is very well organized.

How are skills taught exactly? Or physical exams?
- Jul 28 by finallydoingitI am near the end of my fourth quarter in Walden's inaugural FNP class. Students who started the program with some graduate work started their clinicals this quarter, but most of us start in September. The Advanced Health Assessment has video assignments where the student has a volunteer patient to check off on assessment skills and online quizzes. Patho and pharm also have weekly online quizzes. This program is no "diploma mill" as some have said in other threads. It is a very challenging program and has greater requirements than some brick and mortar schools. The online format allows students to continue their normal work schedule until the clinical portion of the program, and that is one of the greatest benefits. It is a program that matches all over accredited programs across the US and should not be discounted because it is new.
