I was accepted to GWU MSN-FNP for the Spring. I was just wondering if anyone else was accepted or if anyone had anything to say about GWU

Hi congratulations on getting into GW. I finished their AGPCNP program last year.

The only thing I really have to say about GW is that you will have to find your own clinical sites, which can be very difficult. I would start looking and making introductions sooner than later. The school will give you a list of past preceptors with whom they have existing contracts but the MDs/NPs may or may not accept students. Ease of finding preceptors may also depend on how saturated your area is with NP students in general. I live in California and one of my MD preceptors would have up to six students at a time which was a little crazy but I can tell you that I was grateful that he was even accepting students at all. 

Good luck and congrats again. If you have any other questions, I'm happy to help as I can.

I deferred my start date for the program to Spring 2020. I’m interested in knowing how feasible working full time is while doing this program?

Hi @scoope23. I think it is feasible to work full-time while in this program but once clinicals comes around, you may have to go part-time.

I went to school part-time and worked full time until clinicals rolled around.

Thanks so much for your response! I’m excited about starting the program! I have 9-5 type hours now instead of working my usual 3 12hr/shifts per week. I know time management is going to be key! How was your experience finding preceptors?

Please read the response I wrote previously to the OP about finding preceptors. It was a straight-up pain in the rear and it was one of the things I disliked about GW. I wished they were more proactive in helping to find preceptors but from what I've heard, this is more the norm for NP schools to not help students.
