    What information did you find out about North Carolina not recognizing Walden University's NP program?

    I am enrolled & have been & ready to start Sept. 4th. However, I was recently told that NC was reviewing Walden's program & did not at this point accept their clinicals, and at the same time, told that they should be approved within 1 year and it would be fine for me to start the program. Obviously I'm a little hesitant to put time & money in to a program if I'm not going to be able to practice in North Carolina.

    yea i heard the same thing. I did contact the NCBON yesterday and I was told that the NP rules states that the program must be an accredited program which is CCNE or NLN. I will be contacting an advisor tomorrow to further clarify this issue. I am in NC also...

    I'm confused about what the NCBON is saying about that state not approving the program. Walden is CCNE certified.....

    I am from Texas and will be starting the program on the 4th if I can get some questions answered. I am concerned about the program and Texas certification, but as soon as I get the answer I will either be way excited or going to a different school.

    Is anyone uncomfortable with this being the first FNP class, and the fact that there have been no Walden DNP grads yet (the program started in 2011) so we don't have any pass rate information?

    Hello Guys, I will be starting Walden in Sept 2012 also in the FNP program. I am excited and also alittle concerned as I have been looking at jobs in the DFW area and have not seen many posting.

    Hi, I'm from Texas as well and will be in the program starting in September if I can get confirmation from the Tx BON about being an approved program. Has anyone gotten this yet? Help! I've called and emailed but it sometimes takes a week to hear back from them.
