    Congrats! I am hoping for FNP (class of 85?). Anyhow, I have a question - what kind of form did you take to the doc for you health certification? [FONT=MyriadPro-Regular]
    [FONT=MyriadPro-Regular](...A health examination that includes documentation of immunity to Rubella and Hepatitis B, and freedom from tuberculosis in a communicable stage...)
    [FONT=MyriadPro-Regular]Is the health statement necessary to apply - or do you just need to be able to provide one prior to clinical?
    [FONT=MyriadPro-Regular]Also - I got my 3 references, but none of them followed directions. I received them all back via fax instead of in sealed envelopes. Do you think this will be a problem? I hope not, because I would HATE to ask them to do it over again, and I really don't have any others to ask.

    [FONT=MyriadPro-Regular]Thanks for ANY info you can help with!

    Thanks!!

    As far as your questions, for the health records I just sent a copy of my school/work health records with the application packet and that seemed sufficient. As far as the references, I would email them and ask just so you know you won't have an incomplete packet. Maybe you can put them in a sealed envelope and have them initial the back?

    Congrats on being accepted to class 82! I am anxiously waiting to hear if I am accepted to class 84 (CNEP). I was wondering who the acceptance email came from and what was in the subject line? I want to make sure I am looking out for it with a close eye because I get so much junk mail, and they said it was a possibility it would be sent to the junk mail folder! Hope I get to experience your joy very soon!

    What kind of experience did you guys have before applying to Frontier? I have 2 years in group homes and 6 months of homecare, nothing even a little related to midwifery but I SO BADLY want to be a midwife. It is the only reason I went to nursing school! Do you know anyone in the program without mom/baby experience?
  14. by   Little_Babycatcher
    Tanya, that's more than enough experience. The general requirement is 1 year of Nursing in any field. I actually got in with 6 months RN experience because I also have experience working in Mom/Baby as a CNA (while I was in RN school), have experience as a LC and had a 6 month practicum in a high-risk L & D.


    I hope you are able to apply soon and good luck!
