I am currently in school at Frontier to become a CNM-CNEP106. I love Frontier, I think it is the perfect choice for me now but have met a couple of CNM's where I work who went straight through to do their DNP at other schools (CU for one and Columbia for the other).
Are there any ideas of whether a DNP is worth it for a CNM?
Also, I've heard a DNP at Frontier is only 17 additional credits (9 months I heard) to the original CNM MSN 64 credits. In research the DNP at Yale would be an extra 3 years part time, over $60,000, and I'm unsure if there is a distance option (is moving a necessity for the DNP program?). After my MSN at Frontier I will be free of student loans....
Any thoughts from current, prospective or past DNP students at either University?
Thanks a bunch!
