Online? Online? | allnurses


  1. 0 I am currently applying to Boise State University's online AGNP program- start date is Jan 2014. The program is new, this is the first cohort. I am a bit nervous because the program is so new, and their accredidation will be pending a site visit once the program starts. The cost is $600 per credit, they help with finding clinical placement in your area.
    I am also looking in to George Washington University- any other recommendations? Or any advice about either of these programs? I want to make sure the school is reputable and competent.

    I also applied to Boise States NP program and I received my acceptance letter yesterday. The cost seems to be higher than 600 per credit, even for Idaho residents. As an Idaho resident, I would have to pay $324 per credit in tuition. However, when I looked on broncoweb, I saw that the two classes that they want people to take this spring (Nurs 502 and 510) both have $1800 fees in addition to tuition. I was expecting some additional fees, but I was a bit blindsided by the extra $3600 for just two classes. I am crossing my fingers, hoping that I am just misunderstanding...maybe the $1800 is per semester and not per class. I just hope that not every class has fees this high. Anyway, if you know something I don't, feel free to fill me in. Thanks!

    One of the things I have been pondering is that the program is not CCNE, but accredited by NLNAC?
