NFLP with DNP anyone?

  1. 0
    Anyone enrolled in DNP program and doing NFLP with extra education classes? What schools? Online? Seems these programs are a little hard to find, easier for PhD (although not online for PhD so much)

    I am a FNP now, want to continue clinical practice full time for now and move into teaching with part-time clinical practice so I *think* DNP is the way to go, but am interested in NFLP to fund my education. Where I live, there are lots of teaching opportunities in the smaller universities (not the big research ones in the state, second tier state schools) for DNPs.

    I am torn, as it seems many are on this forum and others, about whether or not to just go for the PhD if my ultimate goal is teaching, but I sort of don't want to spend an extra 1.5-3 years in school beyond the 1.5-3 years it will take me to earn the DNP. And if I'm being honest, I'm a little scared of a dissertation and years of research leading up to it.

    What's NFLP?

    There is a list of schools with Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) funding at the HRSA website . While is does not specify which schools with funding also have DNP programs, it will give you an idea of who has the funding.

    I've been a funded Program Director for the NFLP since 2005. I've used our NFLP monies for both DNP and PhD students.

    Good link. Noticed that some of those schools actually only offer DNP (ones I know in CA and MI). Hope this helps the OP.
