Frontier Nursing University...Question?

  1. 0
    I'm planning on applying to Frontier's FNP program. There are 2 required essays/statements. I'm unsure of how to respond to the statement below.

    "Please write a well crafted statement about how you plan to fit the rigors and time commitment of graduate education into your life situation of work and family."

    I have no husband, no kids, and as of now a flexible work schedule. I'm mainly focused on my career and educational goals. I'm having a hard time figuring out if I should just say that or if they are looking for something else. No family and flex work schedule is a good thing, right??

    Anyone have any advice? Any thoughts on what approach I should take?

    You are currently doing something 24/7. What are you going to give up to do this full time graduate progra?

    I would write it just as you said it. You are an attractive applicant because you do not have family and kids to juggle. I do, so in my essay I explained how specifically I planned on doing it, from childcare to cut back hours at work, etc. Support of my family I mentioned, how I planned to organize and study, etc.

    Thanks. It's weird for me b/c I seriously have nothing goin on so there's nothing to explain! Anyway I'm working on it. I'm so nervous about this whole application process.

    You could also word it to say something like "I plan to make school my first priority and commit my majority of time to strictly furthering my education". You can let them know that you have no kids/etc..... but also let them know that because of that you are dedicated to spending the next 'X number of years" in furthering your education and getting the most out of your education.

    Thanks, that's a good way to put it

    What they are looking for is a serious applicant who will not drop out. If you convey your commitment and sincerity along with the logistics of the time available to you for studying, and do it in a well crafted essay (check grammar, spelling punctuation ect.) the you will be in good shape.

    You are a good candidate for this program. It involves a lot of time commitment. I am a part-time student who works 40 hours per week as well and I spend pretty much all my spare time studying. They do not like candidates to work full time and be full time as a student, it is too much, but some have done it and without family/kid responsibilities it may be doable. Don't worry about the essay just detail out how you will handle your study time commitment. I had taken my BSN on line and relayed how I managed that program with work schedule. My kids are out of the house now so that was a help too. Good luck it is a fabulous program!
