Anyone enrolled or graduated from Spring Arbor's MSN FNP program?

  1. I am looking for some feedback on Spring Arbor's Online MSN Family nurse practitioner program. Has anyone attended or graduated from there? I have had some good conversations with the admission team and it seems like a great program. They are accredited and it is part time, taking almost 3 years to complete. I can't find many reviews from students online. Would appreciate any information!

    How do you feel about the program? Know anyone who is in the program? Are you going to accept?

    I don't know anybody in the program. The application process was friendly and organized. I sent a PM.

    Yes thanks for the message. I can read your PMs but I can't respond, I'm too new on here and it won't allow me. It's silly. I'm highly considering the program. Just nervous about having to locate your own preceptors. I hear that can sometimes be a nightmare.

    Every program I looked at you had to find your own preceptors

    I am in the process of applying. I was planning on the march start date originally but I might push it to May. Not sure yet...
    so far I like what I hear about them and they are very easy to work with.
    Yes I have noticed too that almost all the schools are making you find your own preceptor. I am concerned about that because where I like its just so oversaturated with nurses and NPs. But hopefully it will all work out...

    Did they add more start dates? I thought they just admitted in the fall and winter.

    Hello! I have a year left in Spring Arbors AGNP program. They just started with the FNP track last year. The program is accredited, is mainly online (only one long weekend campus visit a year), and requires 500 clinical hours for graduation....but for the FNP I believe it is 725 hours factoring in the peds hours. I like it because even though it is 3 years long, I was/am able to work full time still!

    Hello Mlnurse89,

    How long did it take for you to find out about acceptance?

    What are the classes like? Online lectures, quizzes etc. Did your classes run smoothly?
