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

    Consider this catching hell for your comments about Walden. FYI I was accepted to many school and CHOSE Walden. You don't go there to pass boards- you already had to have a minimum of an Associates degree and be a RN. I did their MSN with a specialization in Nursing education. They did not have an FNP when I went. I found the work challenging and I learned a lot. It is a widely recognized and accepted university. You had to maintain a high GPA and if it dropped you were dismissed. I guess every university has some bad apples. I got a great Education there.
    Oh yes- they are accredited by the CCNE so I guess they are doing something right
    The CCNE seems to accredit anyone. They don't have very high standards when compared to PA or MD accrediting bodies. Hence why we have for profit schools in the first place, as well as HUGE variability between the quality of NP graduates.

    I was considering Kaplan. How is your experience with them?
