    Hi Mary C!

    I applied to CNEP 113 too. I can't believe how long the wait is going to be....if they manage to tell us 8 weeks beforehand it may be as early as March 25th, so fingers crossed it's closer to that than April 8th. (I saw on their Facebook page that the extended deadline will not affect the notification date.) So we'll see...

    Can I ask, how long were in the CNEP program before and why did you stop attending? Also, did you have any classmates who came in with little to no nursing experience but with the "alternative health experience," i.e. doula/IBCLC, CBE, etc?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing your story Mary! I'm sure you'll get in again as its clear they think you're qualified! I was told by someone in admissions that everyone who scores enough points to "qualify" will get in, if not in this session then the next.

    Also thanks for staring about that classmate. I fall into that category as a new grad/doula of many years. I was told by the director that my other experience was still valuable and in the end it will depend on my overall points. But I still wanted to hear about someone accepted who was in my shoes.

    Well, my dreams were crushed. I just received an email from admissions. My degree was obtained at a state accredited school, not a nationally accredited one. You think they would have mentioned that during many of the other conversations we had where I told them what school I was from. No, they waited until I did all of that work, spent all of that money, for NOTHING. I am absolutely heartbroken.

    OH NO! SnowboardRN - I'm so sorry!!

    I'm planning to apply to Frontier soon - so I follow these threads about applying. I'm sad, now. I always like it when students get in. What can you do now? Serious bummer.

    SnowboardRN, I'm so sorry! I was just looking at a local community college program and wondering about the state vs. national accreditation issue as well (I'm looking several years into the future considering Frontier, but already have a non-nursing BA so am not sure I'll go back for a BSN). Can you do a bridge program or something similar and reapply?

    Oh no! Im so sorry SnowboardRN! That's awful. I've heard that Frontier does not always have their stuff together with admissions. I felt like I received mixed info from the admissions staff vs the directors who I also emailed. That's really a bummer that they couldn't have informed you before the whole app process, which is always an exhausting pain. What will you do now?

    Best of luck to everyone! I put my packet into the mail TODAY for CNEP class 113! The fact that they push back the deadlines each class gives me a little hope that maybe there are not many applicants so we have a better shot...wishful thinking maybe but we will see!

    Thanks everyone, luckily my degree was an associates, so instead of the bridge program I can go to another school to obtain my bachelors. Hope is not lost! There are two great schools around me that are nationally accredited.
    The school I graduated from is new, in fact my class was the first nursing class to go through it. And national accreditation takes time. Bummer but I will not give up

    Good luck to everyone!!

    That's great SnowboardRN! Glad to hear you've got a game plan. Don't give up if midwifery is your calling.

    Good for you Kiddie_Nurse12! And good luck to you too! I was also hoping that the extension indicated a low number of apps..lol

    I just saw that they closed CNEP class 115. Do you think this indicates anything about 113, too?

    SnowboardRN, I'm in your same shoes. My program is only state accredited but I'm looking into Western Governors University. It seems that their RN-BSN program can be finished in a very short amount of time and it's relatively cheap. They're CCNE accredited too! Good luck to you
