If anyone out there knows how to find this magical university, let me know!
I have done an extensive spread sheet to find the program I need, and I can't find it, so my last hope is to put it forth to all of you!!
I need my FNP. I live in Washington State, I want to go straight online. I know independent learning, this is how I achieved my BSN. What I need now is a program that:
Does not require that #$%$6 waste of time GRE.:angryfire (I've studied for it, sure, but how does this make me a better clinician?
Does not cost the MOON to be working in
Is accredited through nationally recognized boards
Can either get my MSN and or FNP and or Doctorate (or qualify me to go onto FNP), from the BSN
Can be done in a reasonable amount of time (not a ridiculous number of classes)
No more than 700 (please!) practicum hours
Can be done online, with very few (say four days per semester) on-campus days
At a school that has a record of onlline learning (not a newbie, that's just too painful)
Has a reasonable number of classes but must include Assessment, pathophys and pharmacology
Has at least two entrance semesters/terms per year so that I don't have to wait a year to get in
Actually has openings for new students
Has educators who know online learning
IDeally, but not mandatory, online textbooks!! oh these are fantastic !!
And, a really good library, that helps a ton, and
... last but not least...
NO thesis. I want to be come a clinician, and not an research clinician, I want family practice, so no wasted year doing a thesis.
Ok, so that's quite a list, anyone think of anything I missed,definitely add to the list, but wouldn't this be just a fantastic program for those of us with kids and job and ... and ... and... but need to advance our careers?
