University of Cincinnati Online FNP Program

  1. 1 I am considering entering the online FNP program at the University of Cincinnati. I have a few questions about the program and I am wondering if there are any current UC students or alumni that can provide me with some feedback on the design and rigor of the program.

    hi all,

    i am ecstatic to have just received acceptance into uofc's fnp program. i had been waiting awhile on pins & needles for almost over a month & were nervous b'c classes start next month. well i contacted my advisor and received word back i have been accepted but for the following semester . i was ready to start now but then decided i will just have to wait. otherwise, i have heard that their program is good so far and they are a highly recommended school. i would like to keep in contact with any other students who are attending uofc's programs and so that we can network and possibly see each other through this path. if any of you would like to keep in contact my email address is godblesschildsown@hotmail.com

    I looked into their program but was shocked at the number of credit hours! Every FNP program I have looked at has been in the neighborhood of 40-45 credits and UofC programs are all between 70 and 75. I was turned off by that because it looked like a scam ... offer reasonable tuition but then require twice as many credits!

    If I remember correctly it was between $400 and $500 per credit hour which I would pay if it weren't for the fact that they require nearly twice as many credits!!

    The credits are based on quarter hours. Other programs are based on semester hours. There is a formula/method to this madness.
    For example: 72 quarter hours = 48 semester hours.
    Just google: quarter hours to semester hours conversion table I hope this helps...

    I am also looking in the University of Cincinnati if I don't get into my local NP program... so I would be interested in hearing from anyone who is in or graduated from the program.

    Congratulations. this school has a good reputation but the cost is prohibitive for me. 72 credit hours equals a lot of money when compared with other programs.

    Do they charge you for each of the 72 credit hours? It is almost double the number of hours of many schools I have researched.

    Olivia's mom,

    I understand the quarter hours vs. semester hours but I don't understand how the cost per credit hour is applied.

    Is the approx $440per credit hour per quarter credit hour or per semester hour? If it is for quarter hours, 72 hours equals approx $32,000.

    Do you know what your cost will be for each 10week session? Ths program is well regarded but I am trying to cash flow my MSN degree., so I am very concerned about costs.

    Thank you for any info you can provide.

    rmicu-
    I am a current UCit distance learning adult nurse practitioner student (same track at FNP for the first year). The tuition is $452 a credit hour for out of state ($442 for in state) plus $275 a term for distance learning (aka convenience fee). Although there are almost twice as many credit hours, most programs I found charged nearly $800 per credit hour or more for out of state graduate programs. All the prices were comparable when averaged out. This next quarter (my third) I am taking 6 credit hours as a full time student and my tuition is $3,000. Last semester I took 8 credit hours and tuition was $3,880. I'll admit, I did not do a lot of research before starting this program but from what I did see, an MSN is going to cost anywhere from 30-35K especially if you do online or out of state.

    Thanks for the info, that helps to clear up my questions about the cost. UC is too expensive overall for my budget.

    In the research I have done on various online programs , quite a few of them charge instate tuition for their online NP programs. The costs of the 4 schools I am interested in range from $320 to $475 per credit hour, including online/distance learning fees with 38-42 credits required for the FNP programs.

    I want to pay out of pocket so I am very cost conscious, of course I also want a quality, accredited program. I will be going part time.

    I wish you all the best as you complete your studies, congratulations on working towards your goal. UC has an excellent reputation. It looks like you made a choice that works for you and going part time certainly helps to make the costs bearable, as well.

    Take care and thank you again for the information.
