    I will be starting Walden this November and I wanted to know if the online powerpoints have voice recorded lectures to them. For the most part, it seems people have been happy with Walden, I am looking forward to joining the Walden University community.
    There are no lectures. Only a few short (5-15 min) videos of interviews with 'experts in their field' here and there and a couple of slides telling you which pages to review in the patho book. It's mainly just assigned readings from the textbooks and online articles. The "instructors" are nothing more than facilitators who grade your papers and ask a few questions about your discussion posts.

    Hey All, I just applied to the Walden FNP Program. I live in NY. Anyone from NY going there? I hope to start at the end of Aug. '16 or as soon as accepted. I read alittle on their website about them only accepting students from certain states. I still wanna attend the program though. I figure when the time comes, if I have to give another address in a different state to sit for my boards, I have no problems moving, as there are at least 3 states that border me that they accept students from. Anyone else encounter any such issues?

    As far as reading this thread, I have been encouraged and hope to start as soon as possible. I have been reading the website thoroughly, but they don't list all the relevant class info based on time. Can anyone who has completed the program tell me how the class structure goes? Is it 5 or 6 week classes? How many assignments per class? Can you complete the program in 1.5 years if you take 2 classes per term? Any relevant info would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi! I'm in the process of applying to Walden's FNP program. The mother of one of my son's classmates graduated from the program last year. She passed the boards and now works as an FNP in the Express-care facility through one of our local hospitals! She had nothing but good things to say about the program!
