    How long is the program? I want to start spring 2014 if possible.
    Full time (two classes per quarter) will take 18 months.

    Do you live in Louisiana? Louisianagem14? I'm in Monroe area and they told me I would have to go to Ms, AR or TX to do clinicals because no Louisiana clinical sites. How do you like the Walden program? Do you recommend it? I am thinking of applying this summer 2013.

    Getting close to projected start date in June and i a still uncomfortable with getting licensed in Arizona without the option to sit for boards in florida . Am I making a bad decision doing this ? Who should I contact within the BON to get counseling on the issue

    Just saw this . I was accepted into the program a couple of months ago I don't think it's fair to have an increase . My start date is June . Wow .

    yes that was a huge increase. so now what do you think. it was an increase for us to. so can you imagine the amount of increases as we continue throughout the program. i am dissapointed in that.

    I'm curious about that as well since I'm moving from Indiana to Washington in about 6 weeks. I'm applying to Walden and Frontier.

    I starting june 3 date, i wanted to do the FNP but was hesitant as far as accredation, do employers hire with a degree from here, I want to practice in texas, can I sit for the texas boards? I will be doing my clinicals out of country since I am military.

    so right now im enrolled in the MSN Education, but in the process of switching

    Mark-

    I really appreciate your honest postings! I have been accepted into both Walden University and Georgetown University's FNP program and now need to make a decision for my September start date. There is a big difference in price, but hopefully not in the education. Had you loked at other online programs before deciding on Walden?

    Thank you!

    I considered 4 other universities other than Walden. USA, but I heard many bad things about that program. Kaplan University, but the program was very long and expensive. Georgetown, but it is VERY expensive. University of Southern Mississippi, but I would have to wait a full year to start the program, and will graduate from Walden 6 months after I would have started the program. I had some misgiviings about Waldens program being so new, but I have not regretted my decision this far. After talking to several people, I realized that the main thing to consider was accreditation.

    Sorry to cut in on the discussion but I saw someone post that they were taking advanced pharm along with a practicums is that how it's usually done ? Or can I wait to take the practicums after all core classes are completed ? start date approaching quickly weighing my options . Thanks
