    My friend just completed UC's program and passed hsi boards. He highly recommends their program. Good luck! He did it working full time hours also.

    Thank you illcleff!

    MskateeRN I must say you have strong determination and great experience under your belt! Now that's modivation for
    Me and others. apparently your Recommenders feel that you are a great nurse and will do great in being a NP. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Those schools or that perfect job just wasn't ready for you yet! Please keep us updated! Best of luck!

    Bit off topic but the DNP plan was voted down by the faculty over a year ago but it sounds like it is being revisited. There is an informational session about it and medical center NP's are invited to participate as stakeholders.
    crap, somehow I missed this. How did the session go? Did you attend?

    Has any University of Cincinnati NP students done welcome call?. I received an email saying it will be this week. I am a little nervous and excited counting down. Does anyone have book list ? I understand admission advisor will give list out soon. I know that some of us will be ANP and others FNP but I believe we will take some of same courses.

    Hi MSTXnurse!

    I was accepted for the FNP specialty and will be starting Summer 2013. I have a bit more of a countdown, but still very nervous and excited at the same time.

    Do know anything about the Texas BON not accepting out-of-state nurse practitioner programs where you set-up your own clinical sites? I read in another thread, about Walden FNP, that someone contacted them and they said that clinical sites must be approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in order to sit for the APN boards. I looked through the Texas BON laws and didn't really see anything like that, except for what looked like for RN-BSN and LVN programs. I was under the impression that UC was approved for the state of Texas since it's not on their restricted state list.

    You will be starting ahead of me, so would love to hear about your experience as you go along! Thanks!

    Hello, Got my call today. Yaunne will call me in about 2 weeks. I haven't heard anything further. I am under the impression that all is well. I know a Pediatric NP in MS who completed the program, no reported problem. I will definitely contact TBON myself and see what they say. I know people who are willing to precept when the time comes and they have precepted through TX schools. Hopefully we all can be buddies through this. Look forward to PM or talking to UC future NP students soon. Take care. Good luck.

    Spoke with staff member at TBON of nursing. She said as long as school is accredited and recognized by the board of nursing where the school is located (Ohio Board of Nursing), then TBON is okay with it.

    Thanks MSTXnurse for finding that out! Would love to be UC buddies with all of you that are attending and keep in touch. If anyone manages to get the book list, I would love to see what's on it. Not sure if it would change for Summer 2013, but I'm kind of wondering how I can get a head start on some of the biostats and patho material. I'm kind of wondering if we should start a new University of Cincinnati thread to put information into, since this one is kind of ambiguous.
