FNP info please!

  1. 1
    I know a few of you are in the process of starting OU's FNP program. What can you guys tell me about the admission process? The website is unclear (surprise surprise). I've been trying to figure out where I want to go now that I have my BSN. I've only been working for just over a year so part of me wants to just get my experience in, however, I want to know what requirements I will need when I do choose to further my education (that's a when not an if).

    GRE? personal reccommendations? what exactly do i need to prepare for?

    Thanks everyone!

    Hi! I'm in the process of applying to the MSN program. You do not need to take the GRE unless your GPA is less than a 3.2 I believe. That is your combined GPA - the average of all of your previous college GPA's. You need three recommenders - you provide their e-mail address, they send them a form. You need to provide a resume and a statement of professional goals. The website is unclear and the enrollment advisor has not been very helpful in my opinion. She seems to contradict the information she provides, and I feel that many of my questions are not answered. I do know that the program is about 27 months and you start clinicals in your second year. Classes are all online and are 7 weeks long. The enrollment advisor coud not give me a good answer regarding what the classes consist of. I have really been working on my application and hoping to get in, but my recent conversation with the enrollment advisor is making second guess my choice. I hope this was helpful to you! Good luck in continuing your education!

    Why would they not just take your BSN gpa?? If your entry level was a BSN they would just look at that. I call no fair that they would lump in a gpa from an entry level program that would drop your overall GPA/

    What did you end up doing? Did you go through with the application process?

    Just curious - the OU MSN program was restricted when I checked on it a while back (to Ohio residents I think but in any case, it was not allowed to be offered to those of us who live in the adjoining state of Pennsylvania). Has that changed?

    I believe it is still only accepting students from Ohio, WV, and Kentucky, but that could have changed. Do you mean it was restricted to all students?

    When I inquired, I was told that admissions were restricted to applicants from certain states and that PA was not on the OU list. Too bad as I would have liked to have continued on from the RN-BSN program.

    Oh ok, I know they were looking to change that, I think it was something with the PA board of nursing. That is frustrating, it is nice to continue on with the same school!
