    You can apply before you have your BSN. I had planned on waiting until September, but I talked to Jeanette Woods, and she told me I could apply for the June class. On my application, I wrote that I had 2 more classes, and 2 weeks ago they asked me to fax my degree audit, which had those 2 classes on it showing that I would graduate. Some people don't have a BSN, they enter the bridge class.

    I think I may go ahead and do the same. Do you know how many they accept into each class? I know the deadline for application for June is in April. Thanks for all the info! Amy

    I'm not sure how many they take, they did tell me that I had to wait so long after my interview because they were doing the Feb. and March applications first. I know the deadline is April 28th, so I'm sure you still have time.

    Yes, I was thinking about applying for the June class. With my BSN I did not have to take statistics and I know it is a requirement, that I think I have to finish before applying. Do You know? Thanks, Amy

    a statistics course within 10 years (either an upper level undergraduate or graduate course) for all post-baccalaureate msn students. applicants may choose to take a college level statistics course at a local college or take it on-line at the fsmfn n404 statistics. see the statistics course prerequisites (http://www.midwives.org/statistics.asp) for the course requirements. i got this from the web site.

    Wait a minute. I thought you needed at least one year of experience! I'm finishing my ADN in 60 days. Can I apply for the Fall class?

    You do need experience. I am in an RN to BSN program now. From Frontier's web site - Have one year of nursing experience. The Admissions Committee may consider other significant experience in health care.

    Ok, that's what I thought. It wasn't clear that you had experience.

    I looked at Frontier. Do you have to arrange your own clinicals or does the school do that?

    I also have exp. I have been a nurse for about 5 years now. I just am finished up my BSN. I have my ADN. I will be done in 3 weeks! Yahoo

    Yes you arrange you own clinicals. You do this for Frontier and also for the University of Cincinnati online program. That is what is nice about working in Labor and Delivery now because of the connections. I already have my preceptor lined up and she is already approved by Frontier because she has was a preceptor for a former student. This midwife works at an OB office and she delivered my last baby. I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful preceptor when I start.

    You have to arrange your own clinicals. It is also like this at University of Cincinnati CNM online program. This is why it is so helpful to work in Labor and Delivery because you have access to a lot of connections. I have a wonderful preceptor lined up. She is already Frontier approved because she has been a preceptor to a previous student. She is a friend of mine and works as a CNM in an OB office. She delivered my last baby. I am so thankful and so lucky to have her as a preceptor when the time comes.
