    I am currently in Waldens online FNP program that started in September. I was told we could precept with physicians and NP's in acute care or family practice setting. They said there main concern is exposure to the different age spans(Pedi, Adult, Elderly, etc). For anyone looking to go to Walden I haven't had a bad experience yet. My back ground is from the Millitary where I was enlisted Medic to a marine infantry company in very bad places. I got out and riding the wave of My GI bill which ends at my Masters From Walden as a FNP.

    Classes are to the point. A lot of it is discussion board participation based with assignments. All assignments passed in need to be backed up with reference material to justify any response. Assignments per course range from 3-5 and they have been all APA written papers so far, I'm in the 4th and 5th course. Full time is considered 2 courses. All courses count as 5 credits. Your allowed to take 2 courses at a time, they run 12 week semesters with no break in between. Instructors have all been super nice and very easy to contact and very flexible when it comes to technology errors. Feedback from assignments has been great and quick. All assignments are passed into Turnitin.com to be evaluated. If your looking for the, "Hey look where my degree is from" prestige social status thing, then its probably not the school for you. I suggest Georgetown or Umass. If your looking for an education where you can balance life, school, work, family etc... Its probably the school for you.

    I like the most efficent route to reach my goal. Being insanely hard and time consuming does not fit my lifestyle or learning needs. Walden provides me with a fast paced, balanced way to gain my FNP in 18 months full time.

    I start Walden June 2013 for the MSN-FNP program. I'm eager to hear about how those currently in the program are doing.

    I am in the FNP program that started December 3rd. So far its been great. I agree that the discussion boards are quite long. I would estimate maybe 1.5 pages doubled space. The Foundation 1 credit course is busy work nothing hard. I have an A in both classes so far.

    Starting the FNP program Dec 3rd. So far, getting everything set up is super easy. They seem to have gotten all their ducks in a row regarding licensure and everything else.

    Anybody know a provider in San Antonio I could speak to about clinicals?

    Hi

    I started the FNP program at Walden Dec 3rd, and I also live in San Antonio. You can contact me through my Walden email if you like, I anticipate having a ton of resources once we start clinical rotations. My name is Tatum Pilato and you can find my email in the Walden database. How are you doing so far?

    Are you taking 2 classes at a time? How does that work out...30-40 hrs/week for studies??? I work FT. I called the school today and I got the impression it's pretty well organized. Do you think it's feasible to complete the program in 2 years. I was told for the adult/gero NP program it's 2 classes per qtr the first year, then 1/qtr the second...meaning clinicals I assume. Would love to know more about the course format. My other concern is clinicals...what type of provider can precept? Thanks.

    I think a NP or an MD. Then again I could be confused with South University. Where can you complete your clinicals, or in what settings (e.g.. Primary scare Clinics, Health Dept, College health Centers, Fast Track ERs, Urgent Cares?)?
