You are reading page 8 of Any applicants to Florida Gulf Coast University?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I am trying to decide between FGCU and Wolford. Help me decide. The following are the differences:

1. FGCU - university-based (amenities of the university are accessible, stricter criteria re: accreditation)

Wolford - college (stand-alone private institution, can do whatever they want)

2) FGCU - cheaper ($ 30k tuition fee)

Wolford - expensive ($60 k tuition fee)

3) FGCU - 81 credit hours

Wolford - 72 credit hours

4) FGCU - Masters of Science in Nursing Major in Nurse Anesthesia (MSN)

Wolford - Masters of Science in Nurse Anesthesia (MS)

5) FGCU - only a 2 CRNAs comprising the faculty, the rest are non-CRNAs

WOlford - MDs and all CRNAs comprised the faculty

6) FGCU - thesis / oral defense (i am not sure of this, please clarify)

Wolford - no thesis

7) FGCU - small class size - 15-18 students/class / academic year

Wolford - 37 students/ class 2x a year admission

Any inputs? thoughts?

Have you been accepted to both? Only you can decide what is most important to you. I know for me, the lower cost of FGCU, small class size and clinical sites made it more appealing. But other factors maybe more important to you, like having all CRNA/MD instructors.

I have never heard of a Masters program requiring a thesis or defense..I am currently receiving a MSN for Acute Care NP and that has never been mentioned at any school I previously applied to.

Does anyone know how they are going to let us know of their decision? Will it be email, mail, phone, ect...?

I only applied to FGCU and I think that 1 and 7 are the biggest reasons why I didn't choose wolford. 1 they can do whatever they want, and 7, 1/2 the experience of FGCU. Do you want to be competing with someone in the OR to be hands on?

They called us for the interviews, so that leads me to believe that they'll call to offer a spot.
