I applied to Ohio University's online family nurse practitioner program for Spring 2018. I should receive an answer sometime this month indicating whether or not I was accepted. I am worried though, because I was not selected for an interview. I guess I should not assume- but I thought that if I got an interview, it would have been a good sign, though not a guarantee for admittance. The wait is making me anxious. I thought I was a good candidate for the program (but who doesn't??). Acceptance seems really competitive, which is what I am looking for. Just hope I make it! Has anyone been recently accepted without an interview? For anyone currently in the program or those who have recently graduated, can you give me a review- good things and bad- so I know what to expect? If I'm not accepted, I plan on reapplying as long as I can find some helpful feedback from current students/alumni.
Update: There was an administrative error with my application and it was withdrawn, which is why I never heard back for an interview. My ADN program sent my transcripts to the undergraduate college instead of to the graduate college but admin still entered my application as complete. When they reviewed my application, no transcript was there at the grad college :'(. Once the error was corrected, my application was put in for summer admission. I was interviewed on Feb 20th and accepted Feb 23rd. Let me know if you will be in the summer cohort- I'd love to hear from you!
Congratulations!! I will see you there. I got accepted for the summer 2018 as well.
Hi. Congrats on being accepted to the program. I started OU's FNP program Spring 2018. So far so good. If anyone is interested in textbooks that I used for NRSE 6010, drop me a line.
Are you guys doing the traditional or online?
I would love some input on this program from students who have taken it. what are the classes like? are their lectures you can listen to? how easy is it to contact the professors? I like how the cost is cheaper but also not sure why it is. I cant seen to find any reviews on the program from students who have already taken it.
would love to hear feedback about how its going now.
I am in the online program, but you are required to be on campus at least three times throughout the program.
Some classes have audio lectures and some do not. There is more reading and writing involved compared to undergrad (in my opinion). Every class has an assignments calendar, so you will know what is due for the whole semester on the first day of class. I have not had any issues contacting professors, you just have to know their preferences. Some like for questions to be posted to the questions forum, some do not check the forum and prefer emails. One even gives out a personal cell phone number. The program is affordable, I think it is because it is a public brick and mortar school. I live close by and earned my BSN through OU so I wanted to continue on in the same place.
