    I'm glad to see people are actually being accepted into the Maryville FNP program and wish everyone the best of luck. I applied to other programs in addition to Maryville so I am still waiting to find out where I may be obtaining my FNP. I have to say dealing with Maryville's Enrollment Advisor was nothing short of a nightmare. Their website does not make it clear that the RN to MSN track is not available as an online track. Having dealt with ******since Nov 2012, it would have been a helpful piece of information early on. She dragged me along for 3 months and made it sound like I was all but accepted, but the last question she asked was where I got my BSN - after 3 months of working with me on this. My application clearly says RN to MSN, I have no BSN but a BS in another discipline. If she had asked that at the outset of this battle, we wouldn't have taken 3 months to work on getting me admitted. She could never locate my transcripts no matter how many copies I sent. When I cc'd another person in her dept on the transcripts and pressed her on the issue, suddenly I got a straight answer and the transcripts magically appeared. She wouldn't answer a direct question on my admission status until I cc'd someone else. She wouldn't get back to me in a timely way. She lied about my portfolio being complete and submitted and all we had to do was wait for the good news. I dropped out of a BSN program because she made it sound like I was accepted to Maryville. Thank goodness I applied elsewhere and didn't put all of my eggs in that basket. She did not do her job. If I performed like that where I work, I would be fired. Apparently no one at that institution cares about her lack of customer service and the disrespectful and dismissive pattern of behavior. At the very least they need to revise the website admission criteria, but having said that, her job as Enrollment Advisor should be to check that item off the list THE FIRST DAY. We would have avoided this whole situation. What a waste of time, money and effort. Oh, I also have to say that ***********who is VP of the Adult/Online program never responded to any of my emails either. Really poor customer service overall, given the fact that applicants are making life altering decisions when it comes to advanced degrees.
    Thanks for the heads up. What a terrible ordeal. I'm taking them off my list!

    Don't let one persons negative experience completely deter you from applying there. I had a completely positive experience.

    I agree with missmelissarose, every experience is different. I had a great advisor but I was pulled along as well for months then later found out the program wasn't accepting students in TN. That was my main concern before starting process but she was telling me I had nothing to worry about.

    I recently contacted them as well and must say I decided NOT to apply there because the admissions advisor was EXTREMELY RUDE!!

    I'm trying to decide between Maryville and Frontier. I've been a nurse a long time and online school is intimidating! I'm leaning toward Frontier because of the campus visits. What was your experience with Maryville?
