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

    tadahh99 I am also in Texas. At the time I was looking at schools UTA did not have an online MSN/FNP program. I chose Walden & all was well with the didactic portion of the program. Problem came when I tried to find a preceptor. I was having no luck on my own so I reached out to the school...numerous times & got absolutely no response to voicemails or emails & I couldn't get the right person on the phone. I DO NOT recommend Walden for MSN/FNP. If you are a Texas RN UTA now has their program online. I chose to transfer even though I am losing 17 credits (only 9 trans from Walden). It's worth it to have a degree from a very reputable school with an excellent nursing curriculum. FYI the issues I had with Walden are not isolated to just me. I had classmates that were having similar problems.

    So if you didn't have any problem with looking for a preceptor it would not have been a problem?
