Hi all!!!!

I would like some feedback from current, or recent grads of the University of Cincinnati FNP online program. I plan on applying to this school, but I would like to hear pros and cons about this program. I see a lot of "I got accepted" posts, but I'm waiting on the follow-up, lol. I appreciate any feedback/guidance/advice that you can provide about this program. It would be nice to have some Spring, Summer, and Fall 2013 reviews of this program.

I'm looking forward to the replies!!!!!

Hi RN1913! I am currently finishing up my first semester in the FNP online program, and so far I love it! I am still working full time for now, but I think I will drop my hours to part-time once I start clinicals in the fall. I am currently taking advanced pathophysiology and biostatistics and these two classes together have not been bad. There is a set curriculum for the program and the program is year round. I feel like the instructors are very supportive and are quick to respond to any questions that I or other students have. There are several nurses that I work with that are in the program or have already graduated from the program and are working as Nurse Practitioners. Even though I am early in the program, I would recommend this program :-) Hope I was able to shed some light on the program.

Thanks for chiming in on UC...My application is still pending with them, hoping I hear something before December. I applied to May 2014 start though and also applied to Simmons College as well, both for FNP! Are the instructors good about getting back to you quickly? I don't feel like the admissions team is at all. Can you describe a week schedule for school for us? Thanks for the input! Also what hours do you currently work? Other than a discussion board/postings are their videos to watch or other interactive elements to the program?

Thank you for the input Christelize!!

When I created this thread, I was very interested in the University of Cincinnati. I filled out an online interst form. I missed the Admissions Advisor's phone call. I called her back, left a message, and emailed her. I got turned off from the college after she didn't return my call and email. That was like 3 weeks ago.

Just an update I have just gone the admissions process and UC has been great. I got a call every week during the waiting period. I have loved their prompt communications!

I have had a good experience with UC, and am so excited because I just learned yesterday that I have been accepted into the 2016 Summer AGNP program!
