Thanks for the input Tiffany. I’ve done a lot of investigation since my post so I have some info that may help your husband. Texas State does have a part time option so your husband can probably work FT, at least for the first semester. Yes, it is a new program but as you stated their track record for FNP is very good. I was warned about MSU by a few people so I am not considering them at this point. Will probably do UTA or Texas Tech if accepted but we shall see. Best of luck to your husband and thanks for responding!
