    Yes, Georgetown np program is accepted in Texas. I was interested and spoke to a recruiter. They find your preceptors and you only have to go to Washington, D.C. Twice. The recruiter was extremely friendly and helpful. The only and biggest drawback- cost. It is approx $70,000 for entire part-time program. Hope that helps!
    When I talked to Georgetown recruiters, they said Georgetown does not find preceptors for clinicals for the students; it is the students' responsibility. They may "assist" if one cannot find a preceptor at all, but they prefer students to find their own preceptors.

    This is going to make it a challenge.

    I am currently applying to Walden University. They have an FNP program all online. It is available in Texas. The advisors are extremely nice and helpful. You do have to find your own preceptors but it can be MD, DO, or FNP. I had also been looking at Maryville as well as Georgetown. The cost of Georgetown is very costly. . The cost of the program at Walden is around 24,000 and that includes books. It can be done as full time and completed in 18 months or part time.

    WARNING!!! Do not choose a program that requires the student to take responsibility for arranging clinical practicum. You will find that TX organizations are not willing to do this any longer due to the resource/liability issues involved. I work for a large system with many, many locations - we are besieged with requests from students in these 'do it yourself' programs but are not able to accommodate any of them. You may have better luck with an individual practitioner, but s/he may not be able to provide the variety of opportunities that you need.

    I'm at UT Arlington. I feel, so far, like this is the best of both worlds - in class and online. Most of the classes are offered in a once a month (Thursday, 11 to 4 this semester) or less in person - the rest on line. Once clinical courses start, there is a greater in person requirement, but as best I can tell it's something like Friday and Saturday.

    Will ASU allow clinicals to be done in a Urgent Care setting?
