1. I am currently applying to Boise State University's online AGNP program- start date is Jan 2014. The program is new, this is the first cohort. I am a bit nervous because the program is so new, and their accredidation will be pending a site visit once the program starts. The cost is $600 per credit, they help with finding clinical placement in your area.
    I am also looking in to George Washington University- any other recommendations? Or any advice about either of these programs? I want to make sure the school is reputable and competent.

    I also applied to Boise States NP program and I received my acceptance letter yesterday. The cost seems to be higher than 600 per credit, even for Idaho residents. As an Idaho resident, I would have to pay $324 per credit in tuition. However, when I looked on broncoweb, I saw that the two classes that they want people to take this spring (Nurs 502 and 510) both have $1800 fees in addition to tuition. I was expecting some additional fees, but I was a bit blindsided by the extra $3600 for just two classes. I am crossing my fingers, hoping that I am just misunderstanding...maybe the $1800 is per semester and not per class. I just hope that not every class has fees this high. Anyway, if you know something I don't, feel free to fill me in. Thanks!

    No problem! You are the first person I've talked to that has also applied to the Boise program, so I'm happy to hear what you have to say :-)

    One of the things I have been pondering is that the program is not CCNE, but accredited by NLNAC?
