This program is now CCNE accredited as of yesterday. I was wondering if there is anyone who is currently in this program or if anyone has any opinions on it (besides the "FNP should not be online" opinions). This program seems... Read More

    I'm not fully enrolled as I am finishing up my BSN this semester. I have lined up some preceptors and have been working very closely with my advisor so that when I graduate I will be all set. If you have any questions feel free to pm me!

    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.

    I have lots of friends in the Herzing program. One ready to graduate. All schools have their bumps but so far everyone I know is getting A's ...and good jobs. The school uses Blackboard verson Pearson e learning at the school I'm in. And I'm not goovin with my program at South U. The problem with all these threads about FNP schools is that no one gets the real info out there like what online e learning platform does each school use. Thats a huge question. And why cant we look at a online classroom before we buy into the program. Thats why I pay on a month to month basis with my school. I consider myself their customer, purchasing their expensive product. Its a good way to look at it. Sorta changes the conversation. I understand this because I am an advisor and on faculty at a small nursing school and at the end of the conversation, its a business - thats really what it is.

    That's about the normal cost of an online program. They aren't any more expensive than the other online degree programs I've found.
