I was asked "Is this legal", surely not but until we as consumers take a stand then it'll continue to happen... The bottom line with Ohio University and any on-line FNP program is to ensure that they have the state agreement go to this link for more information and follow the breadcrumbs Court Deals Second Blow to Federal State Authorization Regulation « WCET Frontiers also look at the SHEOO website. Ohio keeps pushing back clincal start dates in hopes that they will get the state authorization for the remaining students from their first class which I was apart of.

Listen if you are not from Ohio, WV or KY don't apply to Ohio University and don't continue to be pacified by their "we're working on it" be pro-active and protect your time, money and learning. Walden University do not accept students from my state of FL and my friend from Texas that was apart of the first 25 inquired a few months back and they told her no. Understand that if you contact your state board of nursing their concerned about "Accredidations not State agreements" two totally different entities...

Just like they as for copies of our credentials feel free to ask them!

I have heard Walden is a diploma mill because of the ease of admissions. I just spoke with someone there and I'm not getting that impression. It sounds fairly rigorous. All instructors are PhD prepared. Practicum hours total 576. They are CCNE accredited. They are NOT brick and mortar. Does that matter? I don't know. They are a "for profit" school' date=' yet their tution is WAY less than many and includes books. Cost is about $23,000 for everything. Classes are 12 week qtrs with a week break in-between. The first intro course is 6 weeks long; must maintain 3.0 in program. Overall their retention rate for nursing programs is 96%, however the NP tracks are new so no real data on that. Would love to hear more about it but I guess that's for another thread. I just wanted to follow up on my previous post. Personally, I would NOT attend OU because there are so many other options and they can be so flakey.[/quote']

Hi, just curious about walden's tuition fee, is $23,000 the RN to MSN NP track or BSN to MSN NP track? Pls let me know. Thanks
