Finding job after FNU?

  1. Hey guys,

    So, I've decided that I will pursue the FNP degree, am excited about it, but need to save money first, start my family. Am glad that I reached this decision, feels good to have a plan. Would like to pursue rural health down the line.

    Anyway, I'm very interested in Frontier Nursing University, but was just wondering how grads from this program did with ease in finding NP jobs after graduation? (I'm asking because if people are having difficulty in getting hired from this program, then I may look at getting my BSN now (already have a bachelor's degree, so FNU does not require an add'l BSN, which is a bonus, time and money wise, but the other programs do) and apply later to a school that has more name recognition in my area, larger school, but is in-state tuition. I realize that FNU has a great reputation, and is listed as a top program, but people in my area have not heard of it. Maybe it's only well known in the NP community? If that's the case, that's fine, but just wanted to be sure people were getting jobs after graduation.

    Thanks for your help! (I do realize everything is more sluggish in this economy).
