hello! I also received acceptance to the Summer 2018 online master's FNP program. I am really excited to start. Perhaps if there are others out there we should start a FB group and keep in contact!
Hey guys! I'm in the Post-MSN Certificate program for FNP! I will be taking less than half of the courses but will probably graduate the same time as you all (I'm going part time). We should definitely start a FB group! I don't know if I will have time to be admin otherwise I'd volunteer!
So great to meet you two!
Nice to meet everyone. I just heard from U of C and I just got in! I will probably choose U of C. Anxious but excited to start.
An update for anyone who cares: I had an admission interview today at a local brick-and-mortar University with a DNP FNP program. At the end of the interview, they asked me to step out for a few moments. After about 5 minutes, they called me back in to tell me I had a slot in the program!
I am working full time and school part time. My part-time load feels like full time course work. When clinical starts, I will have to cut back on my work load because I am going to have a miserable life haha
I'm doing the application for the summer start date now! Hope to join you!
Thats awesome! I'll be doing post-MSN so no more than 1-2 classes at a time - thank goodness because I have a one year old! We should keep in touch!
Never mind! I got in! Post-Masters FNP Certificate for Summer 2018! Woohoo!
I just recieved an acceptance letter to otterbein today as well. Now I am trying to decide between Cincinnati, mccn and otterbein.
I'm sorry. That is odd that you interviewed with abother applicant.Came here to post that I got a letter today too. I did get an acceptance letter. So I'm relieved. Did you apply anywhere else?
@gemini-- I missed the last comment where you applied to other schools. Have you heard anything from the other schools you applied?
I applied too! Good luck! I think it may be Febuary-ish before we hear something.
I'll bite. RN here. Cannot speak for NP education, but... I have taken cellular bio, microbiology, biochemistry, undergrad A&P (those being part of nursing education), as well as general and organic chem, histology, & endocrine/repro physiology as part of my other undergrad major. I am also taking a full EKG course through my employer in a few weeks, as many RNs do. This considerable amount of experience as well as coursework is why you can't compare NP to PA like apples to apples. If you want more info on the direct entry (vanderbilt) please use the search tool.
Neither route will give you everything...if you want all the basic science, all the pathways, etc, go to med school. PA follows the medical model but they still have to skim over the basics to concentrate on turning any random person into a provider in 2-3 years.
To answer your question about "how we(nursing) treats patients"... we follow the same evidence based practice that PA's do when caring for a patient. People have a black and white way of viewing professions before they are actually working in healthcare. Once you start working as a part of a team with RNs PAs NPs MDs DOs etc you will find we all work together using the same clinical recommendations to care for patients.
Looks like a good list. You might also want to bring a manual blood pressure cuff, tuning fork, and reflex hammer. I also advise bring your lunch, snacks and water. Good luck!
Passed AANP and ANCC last week. Leik is all I did. The webinar and the book she sends is good enough.
