    I have a question regarding clinical placement. Is the policy that you cannot work there as an RN during the time you're doing your preceptorship, or you cannot have worked there at all?

    Could I set up my preceptorship with a practice that works on the unit I work and take a leave of absence from my RN position while I do my clinical portion?
    Depends on the program. Some schools specify that you absolutely cannot work under the same corporate umbrella as where you do your clinicals. Other institutions are a bit more relaxed and only require that you not be under the leadership that also supervises you while you work for pay. You will have to talk to the clinical coordinator of your program for clarification if you do not see this addressed in the student handbook for your area of graduate studies / or web resources.

    I think you sound like a good candidate! What program are you applying for? I'm hoping to apply for that class as well, but the MSN bridge.

    I'm still trying to decide between CNM or CNM/FNP.

    I was invited to apply for the ADN-MSN bridge class starting in March. I am hoping that the fact that I was an LPN for 8 years prior to getting my RN degree, and the fact that I am working, will help me with admission.

    Hi Everyone!
    I am finishing up my RN to BSN with a minor in Psych, and I have been approved for dual enrollment, so I will have 9 grad level credit hours to transfer. How difficult is it to transfer credit hours? I have seen the website, but I would like personal experience. My GPA is 3.7 currently, towards the end of my BSN program. I don't remember what my ADN GPA was.... it's been 11 years.
    I have a few schools in mind, and wasn't really considering Frontier until recently. Is it still associated with Case Western Reserve?

    i want to apply for the the MSN FNP but i haven't had a statistics course (wasn't included in my BSN). Does anyone know if i can take statistics while i'm in the program? I know the website says they offer it online but i don't know if i would have to complete it first before i apply or if i can be admitted to the program first and just take it along with my other classes.

    I believe it can be taken along with the other classes.

    I do not know for sure, but i think statistics has to be completed prior to starting classes. I think you can apply before it's completed though. Please call them and make sure.

    You can take the statistics class at frontier-it's only 12 weeks, and no on campus involved.

    Good luck! It's a great school. I'm in my first term of the bridge program and loving it. I have four kids and a full time job and am holding As in both classes. (of course this is only the 4 th week sonfar)
