Frontier- how far out did you apply?

Posted

I am working on my application for Frontier and wondered if applying to a later term would increase my chances of getting in and NOT getting wait-listed.

What term did you apply for and when did you send in your completed application?

Any thoughts or personal experiences are appreciated!

Hi econ2nursing,

I was trying to get into class 133 which is FB Dec "14 but I missed the deadline. However I did send in my application for FB FEb 2015 and the deadline for that is Oct 31,14. I know it is going to be a long, long wait until that 6-8 week notice but at least I have everything in. I have read that some time they close classes if too many applicants. Are you planning to apply for 134? Wishing you the best and if so hope to see you at Frontier Bound!

Good Luck sdj232RN!!

I am looking at class 136 which is FB in March. I am taking the pre-reqs now, so can't complete my app until I have those grades. I have also heard about them closing the class for too many applicants, which is partly why I wanted to know how far out people were applying. Also, I really don't want to wait another 6 months to apply if I happen to get wait listed and don't get in. :(. Thanks for your help and I wish you the best of luck!!!

I think it depends on which track you are applying for: FNP, WHNP, or CNEP. The CNEP classes frequently have extended deadlines. From my discussions with staff and faculty, all applications submitted before the deadline are reviewed by the committee together. So if you apply early or on the deadline date, your application gets reviewed and ranked along with all the others. I know 6 months may seem like a long time but it's just a blink in the overall picture. You might spend that time gaining more experience, talking with clinicians and picking their brain, or locating a potential clinical site.

My experience: I applied to the CNEP program just a few days before the deadline. I was accepted into the class I applied without being placed on a waitlist.
