I have an Associate's degree and I will earn my BSN this May. I currently work as an RN on a L+D unit with just 6 months experience. I went into nursing school knowing that I wanted to be in L+D...and I was right!!! I absolutely love it. It is such a passion of mine already. One of the midwives that I work with went to Frontier and she said she loved it but it has been too busy lately to sit down with her to ask questions.
I lived in NY until this past June, then moved to PA for my husband to go to pharmacy school. We have a 3yr old son and we hope to be moving back to NY after he graduates in 2013. Therefore, I feel like a distance learning program would be the best option for me.
Does anyone have any experience with these schools that would be willing to give me some helpful information? I called Frontier and they said the clinicals don't start until the 2nd yr, which would be perfect because we would be home in NY when they started if I were to start the program next Fall. Does anyone know how many days per week we would have clinicals in either of the programs? Would I be able to work while in the program?
Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
