I am looking to do my FNP program through Frontier Midwifery University/Frontier Nursing University since I love that its main emphasis is women's health and I've always been drawn to that specialty. I've been reading around and seeing that many are saying the program is tough but oh so worth it. How is this program considered "tough"? Is it tough because of the amount of reading/work that is required? The number of assignments? The projects? The demands? Can you please elaborate?
I am looking to apply to begin in 2013 and have been looking at this school since I graduated with my BSN. My only question is whether I will be able to adequately manage my time between full time work as an RN (which I now have my year of experience in med-surg/onc), my two younger children (beginning elementary years) and then Frontier part time..... Is it possible or will I be sacrificing something? Yes, I understand I won't have nearly add much free time add I do now, but I also don't want to sacrifice too much....
One last question: What is the workload like during a typical week for part time (2 classes)? How many hours of reading? How many hours of assignments? Studying? Etc. Also, once the clinical portion starts, How many hours per week is required and is it possible to continue to work full time during that portion?
