Shorter Online FNP Programs?

  1. 0 I've been looking around trying to find a shorter online FNP program - 18 months or less. The reason for this is that I feel the pacing of most FNP programs is too slow in order to accommodate working RNs. I have decided to not work during my program and want to dedicate all of my time to becoming an NP, so I would be interested in finding a more accelerated program to ensure I am not bored and because I can't afford to not work for 2-3 years. I think 18 months or less would be great, but none of my local programs are that short and I can't seem to find any online that short either. Anyone have advice? Thanks!

    The only two schools that I found that was 18 mo's in length was Georgetown University and Simmons College FNP programs and you had to go full time. GU you will have 2 campus visits to make, Simmons only one campus visit. I have NEVER seen an FNP program shorter than this anywhere, and honestly would be worried if I did, the material is very heavy and indepth and not just 'nursing' but adding in diagnosing/treating is a different world.

    Thomas jefferson university is 4 semesters or about 15-16months full time. It is 12 classes or 36 credits because the focus on essentials and cut out a lot of fluff. This is a very intense program requiring 2 day trips to campus and over 700 clinical hours. I graduated in august and passed ancc boards in october with no issue. It may be a little pricey but i was willing to pay for a program that focused on preparing me for practice and was low on fluff.

    What's the cost??

    edit: I think I missed he deadline for summer applicants. It says they accept for fall too but apparently you can't do full time if you start in the fall...bummer..
