At Frontier Bound (right now!) - page 3

by studentnurserachel

Just wanted to let all Frontier hopefuls that I am at FB right now (class 63) and it is awesome! I had been doubting myself a bit and was kind of at a low point when I got here and I feel so energized being able to be around so... Read More

    I am in the process of deciding between Frontier and Univ of Cincinnati for midwifery. Did you decide which school to attend? If you have any further insight between the 2 schools that would be great! I'm having such a difficult time deciding - it's hard without actually visiting the schools....or knowing anyone who attended them. Thanks!
    Yes, I decided to go with UC, the reason being that I have time constraints and am not required to go to the UC campus. I admit I am hesitant, because I feel the pull of the "Frontier", the students seem to have a wonderful camaraderie.
    I actually know someone who graduated from Frontier and she has nothing but wonderful things to say about the school and program. Also, there is a Frontier CNM graduate that has her own practice nearby, but she no longer delivers babies because of family obligations/time and the fact that malpractice insurance is horrible in my state. She also loves the school.
    I honestly don't know all details of the UC program yet...I just received my acceptance to UC today.

    Hi! There are actually a bunch of us currently at Frontier Bound. We are having an amazing time, and I think I speak for all of us when I say how glad I am that I have chosen this program. The faculty is amazing and so supportive--they each have an impressive resume and bring so much experience with them. I feel like I have incredible ladies from which to learn.
    I was apprehensive at first about coming here and the two trips to Kentucky, but I am thrilled and it has been wonderful meeting everyone. I have an amazing group of classmates from all over the country (and even Jamaica!) and they each bring unique perspectives to the table. Having met them in person (and truly bonded over these past few days), I'm looking forward to learning with them over the next few years and the friendships that have already formed.
    This school is truly an amazing place!

    2blueyes,

    Can you go into what kind of practice she has? I'm too in that bind of feeling the pull towards Frontier and midwifery but concerned about malpractice and time obligations. I'd still like to do women's health and was wondering if your friend does family health or just women's health. I'm assuming she did the NP program at Frontier. Is this right?

    I was suppose to have a call with the admission counselor last night, and also received no call!!! I tried calling her and her line was busy, so I sent an email and still have not heard from her! I have now sent an email to one of the other contacts at the school. It was only to discuss my application before I submit it, but I am blown away by getting no phone call or email!

    Hi nastasha284,

    It is very unusual for no one to return your phone call. However, I urge you not to be discouraged. As a Frontier student, I can tell you that Frontier Bound is an extremely busy time for staff and faculty, (especially on the Wednesday before it ends. I'm sure any student can attest to that.) Today, the students are preparing to leave if they haven't left already so you may get your return phone call today. Frontier is a really good school with a strong curriculum and well-worth the wait. I promise.

    Thank you so much for responding! Going to Frontier would be a big dream come true for me, and I want to make my application perfect. I have heard nothing but great things about Frontier, and look forward to talking to someone and hopefully someday experiencing Frontier bound for myself!!!
