I too want to be an FNP and was accepted to PLU's ELMSN program this year. I know someone currently in the program, but she has not graduated yet. She mentioned that they stress that the FNP is not guaranteed because someone misunderstood this point and threw a huge fit a couple years ago.
Therefore, they have started emphasizing this point. It is not meant to deter you from wanting to be a FNP by any means, they just want to make sure that you understand that it is not guaranteed through their school
In fact, in early February they asked me to "clarify my goals statement" to indicate how being an "Advanced Generalist" would be helpful and contribute to my career goals. (i.e. ensuring that I'd be happy if I didn't get into the FNP track once in the ELMSN program). I guess I mentioned FNP in my goals statement. However, I responded and was accepted two weeks later.
My friend in the program mentioned that while the FNP track is competitive (sorry-I don't know the percentage), if you do fairly well in your first year--you should be able to be a FNP. Also, I do know that Post-Master's NP programs are fairly competitive (as all nursing programs
She actually wanted to be an Advanced Generalist and loved that PLU gives you a broad exposure to lots of different specialties. A lot of entry-level programs do not do this to the same degree.
While I love PLU's program, Seattle U was and is my first choice--I'm starting at their APNI FNP track in June. I chose Seattle U because I like their program philosophy a little bit better and I want to stay in the Seattle city limits.
I hope this helped! My friend absolutely loves PLU's ELMSN program.
