I Graduated from Frontier's FNP program last November. I did the full-time program and worked full-time in the beginning, then down to part-time, then just one shift a week while in clinical because I just wanted to get it done (and I was pregnant, trying to finish clinical before I had the baby, which I did just barely. I never had any problems getting hold of anyone and I think they have a top-notch tech support group for any tech issues that crop up. Most of the instructors are also very comfortable with using all available features of online learning. One teacher who stands out in my mind had video lectures, ipod lectures, webinars, etc in addition to the basic powerpoints. I don't think it was too challenging or time-consuming and I felt pretty-well prepared for practice, although I definitely have my weak areas (ortho). In addition, although you learn suturing briefly at clinical bound as well as some other procedures, if you don't do these in clinical, you don't feel very prepared to do them in practice. Since finding the clinical site is up to you and they don't require specific experiences (like suturing), your level of preparation for some procedural things or types of patients might really be different from others and also practice expectations where you go to work.
