    Yes I believe he said the one hour course is close to six weeks .

    I've read somewhere that all classes usually lasts 6 weeks do you know if that is correct

    Your first quarter, you will only take 2 classes, one will last 6 weeks and the other will last 12 weeks. The 6 week course is the harder of the two. After that you can petition to take three classes untill you get to specialization courses then they restrict you to 2 courses. Starting my third quarter in two weeks.

    Wow thanks Mark! Very helpful! I believe I'll be taking two at a time all the time. I'm afraid of being overwhelmed.

    so they do allow us to take two courses during the specialization? Ummm that would seem to be tough once practicums start. great job Mark I am sticking with my one course. I have so much time and freedom that I could take an extra course if I wanted. However I do not want to be stressed. I will see how the second quarter goes. Keep in touch

    I took three classes this quarter, and it was a little tough at times but doable. I petitioned to take three courses next term but theytold me that no one would be allowed to take three specialized classes at a time. I will start practicum in June along with advanced pharmacology. In tow weeks I start advanced Patho. and advanced assesment. Should be fun.

    No....the first quarter will consist of only 2 classes, one is 6 weeks and one is 12 weeks. Only after the first quarter, if you have maintained a B average, can you petition to take 3 classes. Keep in mind that the 6 week class and the 12 week class will be more than enough to keep you busy for the quarter...I assure you. I tried to take three classes the first quarter and was not allowed. Also...the 6 week course is the harder of the two classes and it sets the tone for the rest of program...it is very writing intensive. Unless you have come from a very writing intensive background, these courses will be very overwhelming to you, as they are everyone at first. My advice is to bone up on APA format and buy PERRLA software to make your life easier.

    Mark , your response is greatly appreciated . I'm happy to hear I won't have to juggle that amount of work my first semester back in school on top of working full time . Btw I surely don't have an intensive background in writing . Again thank you ;-)

    Hey guys, just got accepted into the June 2013 FNP program. I read on another post that the school had yet to receive its approval from the Texas higher education coordinating Board which means any clinicals done in Texas won't count. I'm wondering if any of you guys located in Texas had heard of this, or know if Walden has cleared this up. I'm a travel nurse, currently in San Antonio, next assignment is in Flagstaff, AZ but I plan on doing all my clinicals back in Austin once they start. Just want to make sure I'm not plunking down my hard earned cash for a degree that won't allow me to sit for my boards. I intend to email my advisor about this, I'll update y'all on what she says. Cautiously excited and very optimistic. I've only been a nurse for six years but it took me that long to decide I was ready to go back to school.
