    I have been accepted into the fall cohort but I am wondering if 11 semesters is too long. I got into another school that is part time 7 semesters but is more expensive. It's hard to swallow a 4 year program that is not a DNP.

    I am FT at UCCS Master's FNP and looked at many other programs though only applied to this one. My decision was based on the requirements of each program and my years of experience, work hours, and personal responsibilities. This school seemed to work the best for me. Without knowing what other school you are considering I can only answer in general terms.
    I wonder how much you will get from a 7 semester part time program? But, if you are a confident, experienced RN, know what niche you want to work in when done and have time to cram your clinical hours into your life/work schedule then the 7 semester might be good.
    From what I have heard from my classmates PT at UCCS will give you a lot of time in your personal life. You may want to double up on classes for a semester or two and finish in fewer semesters.
    Best of luck with your decision!

    Is there an interview? I am planning on applying in the spring. I saw that you submit the application and required documents but I didn't see anything about the process after that. Is anyone doing the two year program? Just wondering how much more of a work load it is. It looked like the first year is where the difference is. Lots of essays and exams?I would love to hear about your experience in the program!

    I am not aware of a 2 year Nurse Practitioner program. I think the full time option is 3 years. There was no interview requirement 1 year ago. I suggest calling the Program Assistant, she was very helpful when I applied! Good luck!
