Grad School - Sierra Vista/Tucson Area

  1. Hey Everyone!

    I will be relocating to the Sierra Vista area and I am looking for some information on graduate school. I am looking to go back to grad school, most likely Nurse Practitioner, possible masters in education or clin spec. Wondering if anyone has any information on local programs or online programs in the area.

    Thank you very much!!

    There is nothing in Sierra Vista, however, there is a FNP MSN program through Grand Canyon University once a week in Tucson. I'm in the program and like it. Also, U of A has a DNP program. U of P has a MSN FNP program too, in Tucson. I know you can get an online MSN in nursing through Grand Canyon University.

    That sounds great. Thank you so much for your help. The only thing I found was the DNP programs. I just don't have the money for that or the ability to go for 7 years right now.

    Looked into the grand canyon university at Tucson and they said only for student who are not currently an RN. Any one else have another suggestions.

    no no no, call the phoenix GCU and ask about the MSN FNP program in tucson. Im in the program now. There are new classes starting in this program like 2-3 times a year

    Thanks so much for your help. I have been playing phone tag with GCU. Waiting on a callback from tucson staff. staff i have talked to in GCU really don't know because it is a new cohort program. so i have to wait for this one lady to call back and she hasn't been the most pro-active. do you like the program through GCU?? I looked into university of phoenix program in tucson for fnp. having another option would be nice.

    thanks very much for your help

    NAU has both an FNP program and MSN generalist program that are online. Much cheaper than GCU and U of P.
