Hello all! I am currently a PhD student in public health who wants to become a nurse. I plan to begin taking the prerequisites for nursing in the fall, and begin an accelerated BSN program or BSN/MSN program 2-3 years from now. I have about half of them and just need the science courses (A&P, micro, chemistry I & II, nutrition, and lifespan development).
I was wondering - how do employers perceive online CNM programs such as those at ECU, Stony Brook, Georgetown? I live in NY where there are several CNM programs in close proximity (Columbia, NYU, Stony Brook) but I'd also like the option of applying to Georgetown, since their program is a combined WHNP/CNM program. I also don't know if I'll still be in New York after I finish my BSN; my fiance and I plan to move once he finishes his own degree. Do employers respect the online programs as much as the non-online? Is it all about the board certification in the end?
