Hi all, I am thinking about applying to Frontier for the FNP Program. While I have read and heard great things about the midwifery program, I haven't heard much about the FNP Program. I would... Read More

    Your right, we won't know until 6 to 8 weeks before the Frontier Bound we have applied for. I have already asked for leave just in case. I have looked into other schools but feel Frontier is the school for me. I just hope I get accepted. Good luck to you!

    The third school I have applied to is Maryville University. They are offering their FNP program all online, you never have to go to campus. You take one class at a time every 8 weeks, start clinical portion your second and the program only takes 2.3 years. Everything sounds great about the program, I just can't find their pass rates or any information about the program on which makes me a little hesitant. JazzyT, do you know what frontier is looking for as far as GPA, experience, etc??

    According to Frontier's website, they require one year RN experience and a GPA of at least a 3.0. If it is 2.7 to 2.99, then they require one to take the GRE. Yeah, I looked into Georgetown University, but they were wanting approx $1600 a credit hour...too pricey for my budget. I haven't heard anything about Maryville, but the class schedule sounds great!

    Hey all! I am planning on applying for this fall's classes. This post has been very wonderful in answering many of my questions. One more is, exactly how many months long is the ADN-MSN program? I think their semesters are set up different than I am used to. Full time and part time. TIA!

    Does Frontier still require that you travel to Kentucky 2X for the program?

    Yes. Three times if you're in the Bridge program.

    Hello, 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!

    Hey 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.

    every 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!

    Hey 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!!
