Hi Tammie, nice to meet you. I'm Arion. Congrats and good luck!! You make it seem easy juggling all the things you do. Lol. I'm stoked but a bit apprehensive. What have you disliked and liked about the program?
My name is Ruthann and I'm starting the program June 3 as well. I'm in Wichita, KS. I'm a little apprehensive too. I've read a lot of reviews on the program at Walden and I'm hopeful that it is a good program and that I'll be able to find employment as a nurse practitioner once I'm graduated. I'd love to connect with some people who have graduated from the FNP program and hear what they have to say.
I am starting FNP at Walden next week also. I am so worried that people (ie hiring managers and peers) will not respect the degree after all this time and money. Well, I'm going to jump and and give it a whirl! Good luck everyone
I am also starting the FNP program on June 3rd. I am from Texas. I to am very nervous, but looking forward to it. My biggest fear is the writing. I have to admit I am not a good writer. It is going to be a huge adjustment for my family and myself.
Walden has not had a graduating class yet. They just started the program last Fall. The only thing I have seen on the FNP blog are students having problems getting preceptors. Good luck all.
I started the FNP program at Walden in Sept 2012. Classes are fine and my grades are good. I do have to do a lot of reading and writing, but have been able to maintain an A average while working full-time. My 2 teenage children and supportive husband have made it possible.
The negative I am experiencing is regarding preceptors. It has been extremely hard. I do have my first arranged, but only because I know a family doc who is willing to precept me. I'll have to use all the contacts I can to arrange for future rotations. That is my only complaint. I do hope that Walden learns from this experience with these early classes and arranges for more help finding preceptors.
