local university vs. Fronteir

  1. 0 Hi, I have some questions regarding my Masters. I actually want to go the family nurse practitioner route, but saw there were alot of comments on Frontier. I think I'd love to do primary care and have some ability to incoorporate my natural/"hippie" side.

    I'm an associate degree RN. I have a year of experience as an LPN, and a couple years as an aide while I was in school. I recently applied to Concordia University, since they have an ADN to MSN program, and it's all on line and I don't think I have to screw around too much with finding clinicals/preceptors. Concordia transfers my ADN really well.

    Today, during my health assessment for a new position on a medical floor, the nurse suggested looking into Frontier. I had never heard of it, but saw it was ranked high when I looked it up. Is the money worth this school? How rigorous is it? Does it ultimately matter where you get your degree from, in regards to finding work/pay/passing national exam?

    I will be working as a .6 and working on the side independently. I am divorced with 2 grade school age children. Would love to hear some thoughts on this.

    My experience has been that it does not matter what school you attend or your GPA. As long as you have your license and are certified, employers don't know the difference.
