    To Juan DelaCruz,

    I don't care so much about the school prestigious status. I just want to know if I should pursue my msn-fnp program in Walden. I live in CA. According to your opinion or logical explanation. I have to pass ANCC certification first. Then, I can take NP licensure in California. Is that correct? Please reply. I want to know since I am in the program. Thanks

    None of the 50 states have their own certification exam for NP's. There are national NP exams and for FNP's, it's either ANCC or AANP. In California currently, graduates of CA-approved NP programs do not have to take a national NP exam to get a license as an NP. Those who graduated from all other programs (out-of-state, non CA-approved ones in CA such as CDU in LA, for profit programs such as Walden) can take and pass a national certification exam and will get licensed as NP's.

    ** University of Phoenix Sacramento Campus is approved by the BRN in CA
    *** Hospital affiliated NP's (even those who work in primary care) are typically required to have national certification as a condition of employment regardless of CA rules on national certification exemption.
