Hello! I have recently moved near Melbourne from out of state. I have had a goal of completing an MSN FNP program for a number of years, but it seems like a challenge to find a good program from here. From what I can tell, FAU and UCF (DNP) seem to be the most accessible from this area, but I may be wrong about that with my limited information. Are there any others I am missing? Since I am brand new to this area and haven't started working here at this time, I am hesitant to choose a school that doesn't assist with preceptor placement since I have no contacts.

Thank in advance!

I lived in Titusville till I was 18. UCF is the best you're going to get if you're in Melbourne.

Thanks. I am definitely planning to apply to UCF. Have you heard anything about FAU?

FAU does assist with preceptor placements, but it is easier for them to place you near Boca and up through Brevard County. I have had friends who attended UCF's graduate programs who had to drive 2-hours one-way to preceptor sites. Good luck!

Also, I just created a new facebook group for pre-graduate, current, and former Florida Atlantic University (FAU) graduate nursing students. It's called FAU Graduate Nursing Students. Feel free to join!
