Hi all, I am thinking about applying to Frontier for the FNP Program. While I have read and heard great things about the midwifery program, I haven't heard much about the FNP Program. I would appreciate any feedback from... Read More

    So do they have recorded lectures you can watch online? Or do you mainly have to just read what pages etc.. they assign and then do assignments based on the readings?

    There is a lot of independent learning that is expected on your part. There are some live classroom sessions that are recorded if you can't be there live. There is a lot of group work involved. The push community and being involved with your classmates so they make you work together. Its definitely not "read this, test that" sort of thing. Its not going to be easy at all. There are oral presentations to do, case presentations to present, etc. They seem to have worked around all the things that would normally get from a more traditional classroom and put them into the more non traditional online setting.

    So I know this is an old thread, but didn't get any response when I posted a separate thread. I recently applied to Frontier for the FNP class 101 which would mean Frontier Bound in May. The waiting to find out if I am accepted is going to be a killer! Anyone else applied yet?

    JazzyT-

    I am applying for that same class, hopefully starting in May. I am sending in my full packet on Monday. I have been accepted to another FNP program, starting in Jan 2012, but they are charging almost double tuition because I will be considered out-of-state student, so I am hoping to be Frontier bound in May as well. I bet we won't hear anything until march of next year.

    Your right, we won't know until 6 to 8 weeks before the Frontier Bound we have applied for. I have already asked for leave just in case. I have looked into other schools but feel Frontier is the school for me. I just hope I get accepted. Good luck to you!

    The third school I have applied to is Maryville University. They are offering their FNP program all online, you never have to go to campus. You take one class at a time every 8 weeks, start clinical portion your second and the program only takes 2.3 years. Everything sounds great about the program, I just can't find their pass rates or any information about the program on allnurses.com which makes me a little hesitant. JazzyT, do you know what frontier is looking for as far as GPA, experience, etc??

    jd2186,

    According to Frontier's website, they require one year RN experience and a GPA of at least a 3.0. If it is 2.7 to 2.99, then they require one to take the GRE. Yeah, I looked into Georgetown University, but they were wanting approx $1600 a credit hour...too pricey for my budget. I haven't heard anything about Maryville, but the class schedule sounds great!

    Hey all! I am planning on applying for this fall's classes. This post has been very wonderful in answering many of my questions. One more is, exactly how many months long is the ADN-MSN program? I think their semesters are set up different than I am used to. Full time and part time. TIA!

    Does Frontier still require that you travel to Kentucky 2X for the program?

    Yes. Three times if you're in the Bridge program.
