KHMcIntosh32115 has 8 years experience.

Hi! I'm Kristen. I live in sunny Florida with my husband and 4 1/2-year-old daughter. I'm currently working as an instructor at Florida Gateway College in Lake City, Florida. I love my job and what I do, but I'm still not sure what I want to do "when I grow up." I want to obtain my MSN and strive to become a family nurse practitioner focusing on pediatric patients in my rural community.

    South University FNP MSN program???

    I am looking to start this summer as well. My admissions rep wants a start of June 29th, but that is so fast!!! I wasn't really expecting that quick of turn-around to be honest!

    My admissions rep said that your clinical experiences have to be in a primary care setting within the FNP program. No ER, etc. but I read online that in rural areas where your choices are limited that you can discuss with your academic adviser and work something out if necessary.

    South University FNP MSN program???

    Hi Gin123, I spoke with my admissions rep a couple of days ago and specifically asked about on campus requirements and she said that there are NONE. They will send a rep out to your chosen clinical site for review and the only time you have to go to campus is to walk and graduate if you choose to do so. I am looking to start either this month or next month, but have been very skeptical. A lot of folks from my area (north central Florida) choose to go to University of South Alabama. From what I can tell the programs are quite similar, but USA makes you go to the campus at least once during the program for exams and clinical. I read one post on here from 2013 I believe that said they had a friend who had to go on campus with only 3 weeks notice for something, but it sounded like that was an unusual circumstance and situation. When I talked to my admission person it did seem like they were in a rush to get me going, but I can understand that to a certain extent, I just want to make sure that I am making the right decision with this investment of my time and money. Good luck with whichever route you go with!

    South University in Savannah, GA

    I am in search of any and all information on South University in Savannah, Georgia. I recently spoke with an admissions specialist and started the application process for a the online MSN/FNP program . It all sounds great to me but I am leery considering the cost of any MSN/FNP program and getting started with the time commitment and having a family as well. When speaking with the advisor I did get a sense of rushing me into the program saying that I can start as early as June 29,2015. This is a huge step for me and I want to make the right decision for my family and I. Any information is very welcomed.
