I'm looking way ahead into the future here and wondering what the drawbacks of attending Frontier, if any, would be, compared to a non-distance program. Specifically, I'm also looking at OHSU's midwifery program.
I currently have a BA, and am applying to RN programs, both 2-year AD and 3-year BS programs. I don't want to do the accelerated BS, mainly because I'm pregnant and due in May, and I don't want the insanity of being in an accelerated program. Also, you can't beat the price of community college, and I'm not looking for more student loan debt.
My question is... I know that I could apply to Frontier after finishing my associate's degree because I have a BA already. I can't apply to OHSU's midwifery program unless I have a BSN. It seems like the more logical route would be to just get the RN after 2 years and go to Frontier instead of spending 3 years on my BSN. But, I'm having trouble figuring out how much Frontier costs. In general, is it a lot pricier to attend Frontier than non-distance programs? What are some other drawbacks of attending Frontier? Thanks!!
