    I finally did get that email. Sounds like we are expected to go to the MSN orientation as well as the general Graduate orientation which is the following day.

    Hi all,

    Are you guys doing the full time program? The books are already listed on the website bookstore just in case you want to scout around for the prices.

    I plan on applying for entry for next fall, if I finish my BSN by next Summer. My dad went to this school (non-nursing major) and there is an FNP that works in my hospitals ER and went to WSSU and graduated in 2010. He said he really liked it.

    If I'm not mistaken they are staring a BSN to DNP program starting fall 2014, no?

    Hello everyone,
    I am currently attending WSSU's FNP program, and I will graduate May 2014. I guess like any other program, it has its issues. The main thing I want to tell you is to start finding your clinical sites now! The competition is fierce! I have had to travel as far as 90 miles from my home for my clinical site. Be prepared not to have a life! If you can work part-time, weekend, or quit working, do it! This is not a program you can work full-time and be successful doing it. Be organized and don't procrastinate getting your assignments done...due dates come around quickly. Form a bond with other students, or a student you feel comfortable with because there are some assignments that require you to have a partner ( ie.,assessment class). Make sure your partner has the same work ethics as yourself. I have seen many people stressed because they have completed their portion of the assignment, and their partner has not. Try not to challenge the instructors. They WILL have the final say so. It may show up in a graded paper, or when you're doing your presentations. Keep copies of EVERYTHING you do! And last but not least, try to enjoy the experience. I have to admit that it has been tough, but I've enjoyed my clinical experiences....Good luck to you all!

    Hi PatMac10 im a current RN-BSN student at WSSU as well. I too am interested in applying to the FNP program this fall. Have you submitted your application documents yet? Are they willing to consider us although we technically haven't completed the BSN yet?

    Trophywife fulltime is 2 days a week, and partime is 1 day a week. Plus clinical hours, whatever they may be.

    Thanks for the info 1QuteRN! I think commuting 2 days a week plus working would be a bit much for me. How are clinicals set up? Do you arrange your own? Or do they use local people?

    TrophyWife clinical are like 150+ hours a semester once you start which is in the second semester if I'm not mistaken, anyway it average out to be about 12hrs per week over the course of the semester. You set up your own clinicals!
    i live about 2.5 hrs away, but I do plan to commute and pick up a weekend option job, whatever it takes to get it over with! Praying I get in!

    I am in the research phase of FNP programs. I have a MSN already, but it's the Healthcare Administration concentration and not FNP. I will have to continue to work full time. Does anyone know if the WSSU FNP post-master's certificate program coursework is online? I am sure the assessment class is on site. Does anyone know if it is at all possible to find weekend clinical sites so I can continue my M-F full time job?

    Hi CopperTop Nurse,

    No, WSSU program is on campus. You will start out going 2 days a week and it will eventually end up being 1 day a week. It is virtually impossible to continue to work M-F and complete this program. I worked weekends (7am-7pm). We could not attend clinical on the week-end because the school was not open during that time. Have you tried East Carolina, Duke, or South University? These classes are online,You may have to go on campus several times, but the majority of the programs are online. I know that East Carolina will find your clinical site for you. WSSU want you to find your own clinical site. They will help you if you can't find one, but it may be 1 to 3 hrs. away from your home. Whatever program that you decide on...just know that it is going to consume your life! Good Luck on finding the program that is right for you.
