Hi all! Has anyone found a good RN-FNP program online that does not require GRE and maybe does not charge out of state tuition rates? I have already applied to U.S.A but this is really a difficult school to get in to. GPA is 3.5 or higher, which I have but many people apply 2-3x for this program.
Many schools are changing over to DNP program requirements, as it will become mandatory and ISU which had a great FNP online program but they have already changed over to DNP requirements. I believe the date is 2014 mandatory.
If anyone has any suggestions I am eager to get in other applications ASAP. I am ready to get out of ICU after 11 years.

Quote from NAURN
Frontier's program is 57 credits. The semesters are 12 weeks long year round with a week off inbetween semesters. I am not sure if the fact they have shorter terms makes them have to have more credits?? IDK. The program at Frontier total cost (not including books or other technology you might need like laptop) costs just under $25,000 total. (This is assuming you have a BSN already. If you are doing the ADN-FNP bridge you have add another year). I think they are around $435 a credit.
I was wondering if it was a quarter vs semester thing. Frontier does required campus visits though, doesn't it? I have heard great things about the program, just want to keep it as online as possible as I have young kids and my child care prospects are pretty limited (I can get my mom to come over and watch them for a few days, but only during certain times of the year because of snowy mountain passes)
Add: and yes I do have a BSN already!
