Good program for online Women's Health NP school??

Posted

Hi all!! I am a BSN looking to start NP school and I am trying to sort through schools. I am wanting to specialize in Women's Health and need an online school as there are none where I live that offer WHNP. I have seen several, but some are from big name schools and crazy expensive (Georgetown is almost 2k per credit hour!). I want a good program, but I'm having a hard time sorting through them.

I've seen Frontier and Northwestern State Universities and the price is good, they're 2 years full time (some I have seen are 3 years full time), and don't require travel to campus more than a few times. I was curious if anyone had gone to either of these or knows anything about the programs?? I want to be sure I'm in a good one.

Any other suggestions on good online WHNP programs?? Thanks!

Hey! I am in the same boat as you. I am looking at either FNP or WHNP. School is crazy expensive! I hear good things about FNU though.

I hope this helps, but try the University of Cincinnati. They have an excellent online and or B&M program. I just wished they had a MSN- PMHNP program. Good luck with your search.

Thank you, I checked into U of C, the price seems about what Frontier is running and I've read good things about the program as well. Those seem to be my top 2 for now. Thank you!

Yeah, everything I have read about Frontier has been positive! I was a little nervous about it at first because I have never heard of the program, but right now it's my top choice. They seem to provide a good education and they say you get a sense of community with your classmates - something lacking in a lot of online schools.

One of the nurses I worked with on Labor and Delivery graduated from FNU last year. She did the midwifery program. She had good things to say about it. A nurse that I currently work with just got accepted last week to the WHNP program and she seems very optimistic about it. I am curious to see how she likes the Frontier Bound when she is finished with it. I actually think that is an awesome idea to be able to meet your classmates in person before the program starts.
