Just keep swimming:
I am looking in to Herzing University's online FNP program. Did you enroll? If so how do you like it?
Was it easy for you to find a preceptor?
Thanks in advance for all your help :
I have been in the program since January. I have been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA while working full time, but it's been rough! There is a lot of self study and self teaching as it is an online program. You should be ready for that...I probably study 20-30 hrs per week (including assignments).
Setting up preceptors has been the biggest challenge by far. There are not many NPs in my area that are willing to take students as it slows them down and this can affect their RVUs. I have been able to find plenty of MDs however, and the program allows you to do 49% of your hours with MDs.
Overall, the program still has quite a few glitches to work out as it is new, but I feel like I am learning what I need to through clinical experience and reading.
Let me know if you have other questions.
