Anyone attending Kaplan or Walden University? - page 6
I am currently looking into and applying to several FNP programs. I am wondering if anyone has attended or is attending either Kaplan or Walden? If so, what has your experience been like so far. Thanks!... Read More

The CA BRN emailed me back when I asked them if Walden University is an approved online program for pursuing MSN for NP. They said "We do not accredit out of state/out of country schools." Also, after much research into the subject of approval vs. accreditation by our state of CA, I found out that if a program is accredited by the CCNE (meaning you can take the National Certification after graduation), and the program conforms to the CA Standards of Education (CCR 1484), and you hold a CA license, you will meet application requirements for NP certification by the BRN to practice in CA. I found this info on www.nursing-school-degrees.com/States/California-nurse-practictioner.html. Check it out. Hope all this helps you.

I absolutely love it, I work 3-12 hour shifts, no kids right now and I have a FT boyfriend, I have lots of time for myself as well. I spoke with my advisor about a week ago and she said that they have students on a waiting list and I better be glad that I was accepted, she's really nice, she calls me just to check on me. I know of no other school who does this. I am glad I have my spot. I plan on becoming a nurse pract. preceptor when I graduate school that wont be until December of 2014 though. You can take one clinical class however you can also take two clinical classes, I'm gonna take 2 so that I can get it done in December I have 7 classes left. it only my second quarter, that's another factor in applying for NP programs. do you like semester or quarter, WALDEN is on quarters, 3 months a quarter, I like this because some of the classes are boring and you finish them faster
