    FNP Post-Grad Certificate Online Recommendations

    As a WGU alumni, it will take me 18 months to complete Herzing’s post-MSN FNP Certificate program; full time. Herzing is not giving me credit for Patho or Pharm. I am fine with retaking Pharm, but I am a little bummed I have to retake Patho. All books are included with the tuition. Herzing provides a scholarship for this program. If you are attending full time, you receive $500 per semester for the 1st four semesters. If you are part time, you receive $250 for the 1st four semesters. Everyone I have spoken with has been very helpful. It seems like a great program. I have reached out to a couple of current Herzing FNP-C students and I have nothing but great things so far. As I learn more, I will update. I never did get to hear back from Wilkes. I spoke to someone twice; both times we got disconnected.

    FNP Post-Grad Certificate Online Recommendations

    I know no one replied to this, but just in case someone comes across this post, I am going to update. After contacting each one of these programs, and a few more, I have decided Herzing is at the top of my list and I am still gathering information on Wilkes. I am sure it has a lot to do with COVID, but some schools were difficult to get a hold of! I understand COVID has affected many programs, but Herzing responded to me fast and answered all of my questions! Wilkes has been slow, but it is obvious it is due to the chances that have happed with COVID, so I will contact them again. Herzing - 16-20 months to complete. 16 months for part time and 20 months for full time. Depending on what may transfer from my MSN, it may only take me 16 months part time; not sure just yet. Semesters are 16 weeks long, but classes are 8 weeks each. So, 2 classes a semester, but 1 at a time. There are some 16 weeks long, but I believe that may be related to clinical (not sure just yet). There are 6 start dates per year. No on campus commitment. You do have to find your own clinical, but they help you through the process. She said if you can’t fine your own, they will help you, but can’t guarantee It will be close to you. Program is roughly $30k for Post-Grad Certificate. As I figure out more information, I will post.
  3. Hello Everyone! I need some help narrowing down an online FNP post-grad certificate program. I have my MSN in Nursing Leadership and Management and a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. I would like to stay within the state of PA, but I am open to other schools. This is what I have narrowed it down to... Wilkes, Duquesne, Millersville, & Villanova I have also been considering Herzing and Chamberlain as out of state options. I am open to other suggestions as well. I would like something that is affordable. Anyone have good experiences they would like to share or heard of any good experiences?

    Finished my MSN this morning - ask me anything!

    You will be able to figure it out through your job. The mentors will help you figure out your capstone. I LOVE WGU.

    University of Cincinnati FNP Program - Spring 2018

    Hi Everyone, For those of you that started the post-masters FNP, how is it going? I am graduating December 2018 with my DNP and I am considering going back for FNP. Is this program doable? Do you like the setup? How long does it take to complete? Any information would be great! Thanks.

    You may still apply to the program. You will just start the semester after you complete your hours.

    Chatham vs NOVA DNP program

    I applied to Chatham to start this spring. I should hear something soon. I have reached out to current students on FB and I have heard nothing but good things. I heard it is a great program and very doable working full time. I too have 3 Kids and work full time. I also applied to Chamberlain as a back up. After speaking with Chamberlain, I was leaning towards their program until I talked with current DNP students at Chatham. It sounds like a great program.

    Chamberlain's DNP

    Juliekedi, How is it going so far? I am applying now to start in March. Is it doable for a mom of 3 and working full time? Can you tell me what is expected each week; paper a week, discussion, etc.?

    Chamberlain DNP

    Anyone complete this program? I applied to Chamberlain and Chatham for post masters DNP. I can't decide which one. I am leaning towards Chamberlain... any insight on their DNP program that could help me to decide would be great! Is it doable working full time and with a family? Are the instructions knowledgeable? Are you able to get assistance if it's needed? Anything else you found to be appealing about the program?
  15. Hello Everyone, Does anyone know the approximate salary for an ADON in a long term care facility or have ideas on how to find out? Google isn't much help. I was hoping to find someone who knows for sure a range. The position I interviewed for went very well and I am hoping for a call back, but have no idea a starting point to negotiate salary. It is over seeing 2 nurse managers, 1 nurse educator, RN's, LPN's, and CNAs and of course lots of administrative duties. I live in Maryland if that helps.

    RN-BSN in 6 months is DOABLE!

    I keep scoring low in this course too! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I feel like I am going in circles with this class.
