Help Choosing FNP Program

I'm looking at different online FNP programs and the more "name brand" schools (like Duke, Vanderbilt and Emory) cost way more than some of the other schools (like UAB and Frontier). Is there any reason to do a more expensive program? Will it open up job opportunities or is it just paying for "prestige" that doesn't really matter?

Thanks!

Frontier has its own prestige. Especially for nurse midwives. It may not be the other schools, but it’s dedication to nursing practice and family medicine is exceptional. While granted I am biased having attended there, I appreciate a school with the heritage of being founded as a nursing service with one of the first midwifery programs In the early 1900s that evolved into a school that encompasses broader programs to improve the health of those lacking access. As a school, they were setting distance learning standards when others weren’t to include secure browsers, in person requirements, and video monitored proctored exams. Those other schools are probably great. But if cost is an issue, frontier has done fine for my career.
