Hi carachel2, did you graduate with your FNP? When did you graduate? Where are you working now? I just attended the info session this past Monday and have to say I am excited/nervous about the program. I work full time nights in a NICU and have an 8 month old. I decided to only do one class/semester, but that has me graduating in Fall 2017!!! That makes me a little nervous, so I am going back and forth on whether I should take two classes/semester and get done a year sooner. I figure I will probably have another baby within the next year or two, so not sure what that will do to my school, but I would love to get done soon. I have a supportive family and husband who can help w/ the kids, so that is a big bonus, although my hubby doesn't make a lot of money so I have to work at least part time to make ends meet. Glad to hear from someone who has graduated from the program. From meeting w/ the dean and associate dean (Drs. Gray and Schira) I feel that this school actually cares about it's students. Hope that is true.
Fireywoods1988 I know that the school is very competitive. My GPA was above 3.5 and I got in on my first try. I have been a nurse in an ICU setting for 7 years, have experience as a travel RN and got references from my manager, charge nurse and an NP who graduated from the program and had strong essays and I think that helped me get in. They said in my info session on Monday that 400 applied and about 150 got in. Very competitive. Good luck!
