Not from CA but there are so many great programs there. Start with programs near you.

Walden is the polar opposite of great. You're going to spend a lot of money on and hopefully you want to spend a lot of energy studying for an NP, you don't want to get a degree that might hold you back from getting jobs. There are people out there who wouldn't hire Walden grads especially in competitive job markets with tons of FNP grads from reputable programs.

California has many excellent schools.  Any University of California (UC) like UCLA, UCSF, etc.  Any California State College or Univ like SDSU, Cal State LA, etc.  There are also many good private schools such as Univ of San Diego Hahn School of Nursing, Loma Linda, etc.  Don't go to a crap for-profit school.

There are many, many good schools in California.  If you really want to be an FNP, then make an effort to do some research.  Try googling "nurse practitioner programs California" or some such.  The California Board of Registered Nursing website also has a list of accredited programs.  This type of question irks me because it demonstrates an appalling level of intellectual laziness and is one of the reasons MDs and PAs look down on NPs.  Someone who is incapable of doing this type of very basic research should not be an NP.
