    Oh wow. Is it just the Dallas admissions coordinator who is out on vacation? Or is she the admissions lady for all campuses? It's been TORTURE waiting this long :'( I was thinking of calling the Houston campus today since everyone else has been hearing back from them already...
    Torture is an understatement!! And just the Gorl with the Dallas admissions was out on vacation, i would definitely call Houston and ask what's up, because it's nice to know so we can, you know, start planning for the future!!!!! I hate waiting....hate it!!! Let us know what you find out!!!

    Well my status under the Houston campus finally changed to "Accepted" today! Yay! So at least I have that for now Hopefully I'll get an e-mail within the next few days. But, still keeping my fingers crossed for Dallas/Denton as well!

    We'll get an e-mail/letter sometime in the next week or two notifying us of acceptance. And then, later on down the road in October/November or so we should get another one with details regarding orientation and other steps to take.

    You'll get an official letter in the mail and it'll have an advisor you contact. And they'll give you instructions via email. Acceptance is also good for one year FYI.

    I submitted my application a couple of days ago for Denton. Today I received an email stating my application was received with instructions for setting up my portal and email with TWU. I chose Denton because I was told by a friend who is in the program that they will find a preceptor for you. So I inquired with TWU's graduate FNP program director, and she states "The faculty assist students with preceptor placement. Although we do place several students each semester, we cannot guarantee each student a site. Securing a site depends on the number of students requesting placement by faculty." This is comforting to a degree and you have up to 6 years to complete the program. I do not plan to take that long, but if any issues arise it is comforting to know I have this long to complete the program.

    The program is geared toward the working student. You can go full time, part-time, or very, very part-time.

    Do you happen to know if any of the courses can be taken online? Or is it purely in-person classes?

    Is Denton an all online program or are you required to go to the campus sometimes? And I'm guessing clinical are in the Denton area and not in Houston?

    Majority of the courses are online, especially the first semester!

    Do not depend on them to find you a preceptor- take it from someone in their FNP Houston class. There is a demand for preceptors across Texas (and the US) due to the number of available NP programs online. I would find a plan B just incase theirs does not work out.

    I think it is mostly online, however I am not certain.
