Thank you for your review on Purdue FNP certificate program. I am currently researching programs and there isn’t much on the certificate program. I also have seen lots of bad reviews from the Kaplan side. Thanks for sharing your experience. Did you feel you were well prepared for boards?
Yes. The program does prepare you for the boards in two ways. 1st, your hours in clinical and the data you must upload regarding your patient encounters will increase you clinical competencies in the primary care environment. 2nd, you will have a commercial review course (we used Barkley but that may have changed). This review is like most commercial ones you could purchase on your own where there are 10-15 modules and a practice exam. Just FYI, their practice exam was difficult and worth a portion of your grade. From my experience the program was well organized and the online platform was streamlined. I continued to their DNP online program which is also well structured. I hope this helps.
