I am thinking about attending a school for FNP that might possibly be considered a online school that might possibly be considered a "dipolma mill" to some. My question is in your experience as a praticing NP did the question of which school you attended arise in interviews? Or is certification a equalizer? Just to be clear does the school attented for NP really matter to an employer if you ARE certified?
And that school would be.....? I am considering the new FNP program at Walden.

I believe its up to the person who is considering you. I work at the VA here in Detroit and was interviewed twice. The first time the clinical manager was ready to hire me until he noticed I graduated from Excelsiors LPN to RN program. He did not personally like the College. A lot of people are stuck thinking if you don't attend a brick and mortar school but choose online instead, the education received is subpar..just my opinion. I am attending Waldens FNP prog starting in Sep and they have just contracted with a well known and respected hospital system (DMC) here in MI so I should be ok.
