USA DNP fall 2013

  1. 0 I just got my acceptance letter for the University of South Alabama's DNP/post-master's FNP program!! Anyone else headed to USA's DNP program in the fall 2013? Part of me is excited and part of me is wondering what i just got myself into! I live in CO and I'm already wondering how I will find a preceptor for my clinicals. Anyone have advice for finding a preceptor? I don't believe the school is able to help simce I am out of state. d

    I just got accepted, too! I am very excited. I applied to USA because it's all online and very affordable. How about you? Do you know someone that went to USA for their DNP?

    If you are already thinking about preceptors than you are ahead of me. Do we need a preceptor for the first semester?

    There is little information on this forum from post master's DNP students. I would love to hear any tips/personal experiences.

    Thanks!

    I have rec'd my acceptance packet and completed the new set of tasks in order to get the official acceptance letter. USA just emailed with confirmation of receipt of the acceptance packet noting it as complete.
    Like the others here, not sure what to think at this point.
    I am a Post Master's Dual role DNP applicant.
    Any input from previous classes as to what to expect would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I applied for the BSN-DNP FNP program for Fall 2013. I also just received the email stating that my acceptance packet is complete. Looking forward to completing the next steps. Exciting!

    I will be starting the USA DNP dual program (ACNP/FNP) this fall. I am very nervous as I am the sole provider in my family. I know that working is doable, but I have some anxiety in starting a program that will last FOUR YEARS!!! Anyone else out there starting the same program this fall?

    bryango I am not in your program but I am seriously considering switching....if possible...after my first semester. However, I am still uncertain. I am the sole provider in my family right now and that program sure does have a lot of clinical hours!

    I was accepted into the Fall 2013 Advanced Emergency dual role program. I am getting anxious as well! I am curious as to how we will be setting up our clinical rotations. Anyone else planning on working while in the program too?

    Hello there! I am new here at allnurses...I decided to join because I have a lot of questions and don't have much network of RNs to ask. I applied for the BSN/DNP fnp/agncp dual program for spring 2014. I was wondering what are the chances of being accepted in the program? I have worked the floor for only 2 years, gpa is 3.48,have a msn in leadership and management. Any advice? I would really like to be able to get in a fnp/agncp program and the only affordable one and online one I found is USA's. Vanderbilt's program sound good too but it is expensive and I don't think it is purely online...
    I tried applying at Ball state but they are still trying to see if I am eligible for the msn fnp because I already have a msn but the only problem is the grading system that my school used is non-traditional Pass or Fail.

    Did you try SJCME (St. Joseph's) there is a WGU RN to MSN grad on our Facebook page who got in at that school's post grad fnp certificate program.

    Kind of a weird question. I have been acceppted to the DNP dual role program at USA. I would like to change to the MSN of the same program (dual role) or MSN for the FNP. Have any of you had experience doing this? Is it doable? Or am I going to have to reapply for the new program all over again?

    Hello to everyone. Congratulations to you all on getting accepted. I am interested in applying to USA's Emergency NP dual Fnp-Agacnp track and wanted to know about the application process.
    A little background about myself.: I graduated December of last year with my Bachelors and started in the OR at a level 2 trauma center July of this year. I would like to begin my DNP process sometime next year; hopefully Fall. I absolutley love being in the OR and hope to someday be a NP-RNFA. I know its early in my career but I really want to get a head start on it now before tuition prices go any higher than they are now.
    Question: What is the application process like and what are the requirements? Any information will be greatly appreciated
