- 0May 22, '12 by lululucyHello, I got accepted to the NYU adult primary program back when I was in my undergraduate and just recently found out that if I decide to transfer to their new FNP program, I have to do full time. I'm strongly considering applying to FNU now, not only because I've heard so many positive comments, but also because I can do part time online. I don't know if this is a smart move. And how easy is it to find a preceptor in NYC? Also, seeking to talk to anyone from NYC who is applying or is already in the program. Thank you!Last edit by lululucy on May 22, '12

I work for Stony brook and they have a Adult NP program but I want to do FNP. Im looking forward to replies by nys students....
- 0Jul 30, '12 by Kristen-KHey guys! I'm thinking of applying to the Frontier FNP Program. I have heard the program is pretty tough, so I was hoping to hear someone's opinion about working full time during the program?? Also, when do clinicals start during the program if you do the full time status?? I've also been looking at Walden. They have a new CCNE accredited FNP program that can be completed in 1.5 years, but it's very new, so I'm hesitant.
- 0Aug 30, '12 by raza718mevery program will probably be tough, thats why I decided to do it part-time instead of going in full time and going crazy. Also my word of advice to everyone before they choose a program, make sure that your state recognizes it. I live in NY and there are only a few programs that New York State will accept and Frontier is one of them. I was looking into Walden also but NY does not accept them. Best of luck for everyone. I am gettin my transcripts and reference letters prepared for Frontier. Hopefully I will be Frontier bound sometime in the summer!

- 0Oct 26, '12 by RNmomof3boysHey guys! This week I sent my application in for CWHNP class 113. On my app I put full time (I need to work full time the first year I go to school) and have three boys and a husband. The more I think about this the more I am questioning full time vs. part time. Any thoughts from anybody. I am very excited but worried I may have bit off more than I can chew. Or is this normal doubt now that my app is in. I have had awful dreams the last couple nights since I sent my app in. I know that I won't know anything for like 5 months... So who knows why I am so stressed about this!!
- 0Dec 31, '13 by empress2676Happy New Year everyone! I will be applying to class 125 and had a question in regards to the portfolio. I'm STUCK lol. the questions seem simple but I don't know what they are looking for. I have a ADN and I'm applying for the direct entry program ( have a bachelors and master in another discipline). Did anyone complete there portfolio portion and can give some pointers on how to answer the questions. The deadline is Jan 25 and I just found out about the school so I'm in a mad dash. Any information/insight would help.
- 0Nov 8 by KellyRN2013, RNI am very interested in Frontiers WHNP-CNM program! I am obtaining my MSN in leadership and management right now but I miss OB nursing so much I know I want to end up back in that field! Please let me know if frontier is still the best place to be! Anybody from VA that has gone through this program? Any helps appreciated
- 1Nov 8 by zmansc, RNFrontier has an excellent program, and yes they still have the dual program you are interested in. I think "best place" is a personal decision as it has to take into account many personal issues that make that program best for you. The reason there are multiple different programs, with multiple different offerings is because there are so many different nurses with unique situations and each program is tailored to meet the needs of a unique group of students.
FNU is very focused on the rural provider and of course towards women's health. Personally, I'm not oriented towards women's health, and at times it's a bit frustrating that so many assignments or discussions are related to women's health, but I am from a very rural location, and the FNP education is still top notch for all populations. And quite frankly, even though I don't expect women or children to be the primary focus of my practice, it is important that I understand these populations as well, so I don't mind as much as some others.
