I have been accepted to both MSN FNP and Post-BSN DNP (UMDNJ and Rutgers). I have 2.5 years of med/surg backgroud.
MSN is 2.5 yr long full-time and DNP is 3 yr long. Both schools are pretty much same distance from my house. I just moved to NJ so I am out of state status anyways.
I originally wanted to pursue MSN just because it is little bit shorter and I wasn't too sure if I was ready for DNP. But now after finding out that I was accepted to Rutgers, I don't know what to do. As far as Rutgers, this fall semester is their very first semester for Post-BSN DNP program. I know that Rutgers has a great reputation, but I don't want to be a guinea pig either since they are just starting this program. But, on the other hand, I can pursue higher degree with just 6 more months compare to UMDNJ.
Any current FNP or FNP students can give me some recommendation please?
