I have a BSN and want to start an online FNP program for flexibility and would like to continue working at least part-time if not full-time. Do not mind traveling to school site once or twice a semester. I also want a program where the faculty is supportive and doesn't try to 'weed-out' the students. I have researched and narrowed down the list, i.e., University of Southern Indiana, St. Joseph's Univ. Maine, University of North Dakota, University of Missouri and University of Las Vegas. St. Joseph's is appealing since it can be self-paced but it is also costly, $600/cr. hour. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
I have applied to Clarkson College for Spring. I should hear something this coming week as they met and sent out letters already. I so hope to get in there. I have found through my application process that those schools that do not require the GRE have to look at and stress other areas to decide on who to admit. One used every course I had ever taken since high school graduation to determine my GPA even though my GPA at my BSN school is 3.67. They also had only 25 places for 50 applicants, so not all schools look at the same things. I hope Clarkson didn't have lots of applicants and stresses the essay and my BSN GPA. I have taken the GRE although it isn't needed. I did my BSN online, and it is the best and only way to go for me. Wish me luck. Luck to you too. Barinbass
