Hi,I'm looking for expanding my education to the graduate level for FNP. i'm looking at applying to the University of Southern California which is extremely expensive ($84k minus financial aid). speaking with the representative he stated that the program is new and they are going for ccne certification and can take up to a year to receive. The university has a medical school, CRNA program and an already nursing program but the FNP program is new. the representative told me in order to obtain ccne cert they have to have active students. the first cohort just started this past august. i have applied to other schools as well but I am looking for opinions about if it's worth pursuing this institution if accepted.
