Where is the best online NP program

  1. 0
    Where is the best online Family NP program? By best I mean..... Where are the instructors concerned about student learning and not trying to do harm to your GPA? Certainly cost is important but more important to me is a quality education that is without the contorversy of difficult to deal with professors who are not there to teach. I plan on studying constantly and writing all the papers that are required. I have heard too many horror stories of NP programs with battle axe professors that aim to see students struggle. For example, I have a good friend who is currently in a NP program here in Alabama, she is extremely frustrated by the attempts of many professors in the program to fail students. According to her, of 80 that started last year they are down to about 1/2 still remaining. They are still in the core concepts, not the clinicals or speciality tracks! That is not what I consider to be a stable learning environment. Surely someone here knows of a good, quality education facility that offers an online FNP track without the associated headaches of a bad program. I attended an online BSN program and loved it. The professors were all genuinely concerned with providing guidance and a quality educational experience. Because of this environment I learned a ton of new information that made me a better nurse. Unfortunately, that school does not have a NP program. Please email if you have any suggestions on a quality educational program for the Family NP. Thank you.

    I am pretty sure I have seen heaps of FNP courses online. It's the ACNP that I can't hardly find any of.

    I just graduated with my MSN, PNP track from the University of Missouri/Columbia's Sinclair School of Nursing. My program was excellent, all online. We had one campus visit per semester for 1-2 days. I was very pleased with my program, and I know that their FNP track is highly rated. Here is a link to their FNP page:

    Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing has a FNP program. I've been VERY impressed with everyone at that school and have even met with an instructor near me to discuss the program(s) more in detail.

    The have a FNP program, a CNM program and WHCNP program. You visit the school once in the beginning of the program for Frontier Bound and then again right before you start clinicals for Clinical Bound. Your clinicals are done in your community.

    They have tons of details on their website and the admission counselor is awesome and VERY helpful if you have any further questions beyond what the website tells you.

    They accept 6 classes a year too, 2 in the spring, 2 in the fall, 1 in the summer and 1 in the winter.

    They also do terms now and they are 12 weeks in length. I've also found it very affordable in the realm of MSN education.

    Anyway, here is the website. Happy viewing!!!

    I know of several ACNP programs online. St. Louis U and U of South Alabama are the first two that come to mind.

    I attend St. Louis University in Missouri (SLU). I have posted this before, but my program is exactly opposite of what you described.

    The instructers bend over backwards to make sure you succeed. pricey, but worth it.

    Check out University of Southern Indiana. No campus visits. All lectures streamed and archived. Done in 2 years (w/ BSN). You can ask questions in real time. Most economical online MSN/FNP program in the US (under 10K for all). Good professors-very supportive and available when you call.
