    Hello I am also looking into Walden because they do not require experience for the NP program. I have also applied to U of A's BSN-DNP, which is my first choice but I am trying to keep a back up plan because I know there are far more applicants (likely better qualified than myself) than positions.... walden looks ok.... Still really nervous because it almost doesn't seem like a "real" school but if I don't get accepted to that other program I will be applying. Please let me know if you hear anything and if updates on your experience with the school. I do have to say that I've only spoken to them one time on the phone and out of the 10 schools I talked to they were the easiest to talk to, friendliest and gave straight-forward answers.

    Oh- and I heard Walden is VERY difficult.... Any comments regarding that?

    Uh oh, I just looked ln the AZ board of nursing website for approved NP programs and the only ones listed are GCU, ASU, U of A and UOP... I wonder if those are it... Maybe I'll have to keep the MSN followed by the NP Post Masters Cert as the backup plan...

    Walden FNP has a Facebook page where you can talk with current students there. I cannot post a direct link due to TOS, but just do a search there for it.

    Hello I just started the the BSN to MSN FNP track. The foundation course was detailed for 6 weeks but it was highly organized. My co-worker has six classes left and takes one class @ a time. She advised me that two courses are severely intense for her as a full-time worker, mother, and wife.The core courses are intense class assignments. I have to readjust my work schedule. I believe it can be done.

    I did my BSN thru Kaplan and loved it. As much as you can love school that is. I have applied to Walden for my FNP hope to start in March, not that I am looking forward to going back to school but I need to do this and do it now. I am not getting any younger.
    Hello! I begin my Adult-Geronitlogical NP at Kaplan at the end of February, I really excited. Glad to hear you enjoyed kaplan for your BSN, may I ask why you won't be staying there for your NP?

    How is the FNP program going for those that have started? I just received my acceptance letter and I will be starting June 3. Is it possible to work full time at first and go to school. I have a full time job, married and 1 teenage child. I am really nervous and afraid I will not be able to work full time. Any comments Please..

    Hi GGMISSTX.
    I was accepted into Walden FNP program to start in Mar 1. I actually haven't started Because I have been so busy this week. When I called to advisor to help me make my decision whether to defer until June, she stated that tution will be much higher for the new students starting June and that if I kept my class now, that mine would stay a little lower? She said this just changed yesterday and I wonder if its just a way to keep me in? So, I'm curious to know if this is true. What is your tuition starting in June per credit hour?
    It seems like they recieved a big turn out and are having I huge demand for NP program. They have thousands if applicants and are now planning to change the admission requirements to make it more competitive and selective. The cost of tution, even with the new rate, is still comparable to other schools. I think we are lucky we got in when we did because it was so easy!
    However, all of this makes me wonder if its a good choice. I mean, I think it's a great opportunity to become an FNP, but it seems like there will be so many grads that it may be more competitive to find a job.

    Hi. What is the tution starting in June. They told me it went from $395 per credit hour to $550. Is this correct?
