Any graduates of Kaplan's NP program?


Hi, I am curious to know if anyone out there has graduated from any of Kaplan's Nurse Practitioner programs? They just received their CCNE accreditation for the Post-Master's Certificate for Adult Gerontology Primary Care NP and I plan to start in August. I originally chose Kaplan because they accepted my Adv Path and Adv Pharm I took at a another university years ago. Then I was drawn in by the appeal of completing it in just over a year.

Any input offered would be appreciated.

How do you like it, @Vegan_RN, BSN? I take Advanced Health Assessment in a couple of weeks then will start the actual NP classes after that.

I wasn't aware that the CCNE had started accrediting post-masters certificates. It used to be just degrees.

Yes, they accredit post-master's certificates. Look on the CCNE site--there is a list, you can select by degree or certificate and it will show you the colleges with CCNE accreditation.
