OU online MSN-NPRegister Today!
- by chuckster Mar 6I know that several of those who were in the RN-BSN program at Ohio were considering the MSN after graduation.
I'm looking for some feedback from anyone who has enrolled in the MSN program.

- Mar 6 by iwantmoreI would love feedback as well, although I know OU no longer has the Nursing administration MSN online. I would love to stay with OU, but not sure that FNP is my thing.
- Mar 7 by chucksterHere's a piece of pertinent information that I just received:
Due to recent state authorization updates, Ohio University’s online MSN program is currently authorized to only accept students residing in Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia. We are continually working with new states to become authorized.
- Mar 10 by chucksterbushrn75: I'm also in the Phila area. While there are lots of choices locally for the MSN, the programs are either too expensive (such as Jeff and Widener) or both too competitive and too expensive (Penn and Villanova). I'm actually eligible for reduced tuition at Drexel (I'm an alum and my employer is a Drexel sponsor) but even with a break, the cost is close to $30k, well over what I can afford. Temple, from whom I also have a degree, is phasing out their MSN program and will now concentrate on the DNP, so they're out too.
I've actually applied to Wlimington but frankly am not too optimistic about my chances of being admitted. Wilmington's reasonable tuition - roughly the same as for the OU MSN program - has attracted lots of interest and they now have something like 3 or 4 applicants for each available slot.
- Mar 13 by mtsteelhorseHonestly, after the run around I received from OU with regard to their FNP program I would be leery. You might take a look at Univ. Southern Indiana... very good reputation, established, affordable, completely on line. Best of luck to you.
- Mar 14 by miteacherQuote from mtsteelhorseHow do most people find a spot to do their clinicals for Univ of Southern Indiana? I heard that you have to arrange your clinical spot before they accept you.Honestly, after the run around I received from OU with regard to their FNP program I would be leery.

- Mar 14 by mtsteelhorseI have applied at USI and no mention was made about arranging for clinicals. Perhaps the FNP program differs from the PMHNP program.
- Mar 14 by DidiRNJust this morning I was reading a form on Walden's website for the FNP that I had never seen before...a paper you have to fill out, listing prospective preceptors, that has to be done during the admission process.
- Mar 14 by mtsteelhorseHmmm...could be the difficulty of finding preceptors has gotten to be such that schools want to be clear about that aspect of completing the program. The primary complaint I hear is the near impossibility of finding adequate preceptors. How sad for the profession.
