I finally decided today that Frontier is for sure where I want to go. So I looked up application deadlines and the next one is in February. Since this is cutting it close, is it okay to go ahead and send in my online application while I gather my references and transcripts? Or do those need to be sent in first?And I will probably be waitlisted won't I? :-/ That's ok, as long as I get in! I meet all of the requirements.

Oh and one more question... in the first essay it says at the end "Please type separately."Type what separately?

All of my questions were answered by them (except the waitlist) so disregard this post. Not that everyone wasn't doing that already, haha! :-)

They told me that I could go ahead and submit the application and documents (essays and resume) right now, and after that is finished I will receive an email telling me when I need to have my packet mailed in by.

She said that they take applications up until the day of the deadline and they are admitted on an individual basis (I took this to mean that they didn't go by who submitted their applications first, however that seems to be different than what I have been told by practically every student). 6-8 weeks after the applications are submitted they notify the selected candidates.

So it's based on how early you apply? I am returning after withdrawing. I need to go to Frontier bound again! Very nervous!

So you have been? How did you like it?

From reading around getting as much info as I can, it has seemed like the earlier you apply the better because the classes get filled up quickly. If you don't apply in time for a certain frontier bound date then you get waitlisted to the next one. But what she wrote me that I listed up there, they accept on an individual basis reguardless of when you apply (as long as it's before the deadline). Does that make sense?

Maybe someone else can clarify it for us.

I asked this same question recently. The woman in admissions clarified that she does not send any of the applications to the application committee until after the deadline. Only at that point do the people making the decisions begin to evaluate our apps. This is what she meant by individual basis- our apps are evaluated equally regardless of when you submitted it. Hope thos helps!

I'm applying to CNEP 113, what about you guys?

I loved frontier, but will have to do frontier bound and clinical bound shortly after. I'm applying to CNEP 113 as well. Who'd you ask For references?

I asked a fellow instructor, a mentor FNP, and my L&D charge nurse/manager. Does that sound acceptable?

That sounds good to me! I asked a coworker nurse, my supervisor at work, and my old OB instructor who is a CNM. (I am going for CNM)
