University of Cincinnati Spring '17 FNP

Posted

I received my acceptance letter a few days ago! Anyone else?

Me too! Congratulations! Can't wait to start! May I add you as a friend to stay connected?

Absolutely!

I'm so excited/nervous to begin! I just finished up my BSN in August and wanted to continue on as quickly as possible since I was already in school mode.

Same here! I've been an RN for a long time, but I just finished by BSN in summer. I actually wrote that in my essay. I told them that I am definitely disciplined as an online learner as I've been doing it for the last year already.

I second this! Congrats on the graduation! Can't wait to be there myself. How did you feel about the program?

I would highly recommend their program to anyone wanting to go further. UC is highly rated and has a good pass rate on the national certs, and it is getting better. I believe that there have been several ratings recently that put us in the top 10 for online NP programs and even a few that rated us #1.

Recommendations: do take the program for granted, it is tough but doable. Get your clinical rotation sites figured out and arraigned early. I didn't really have any trouble, even being in a large city (Chicago) because I arraigned mine very early. UC has a list of previous preceptors in each state that they can give you if you have trouble- however some of the people on the list are no longer practicing so just be aware of that.

Please feel free to message me with any questions.

Hi, i have recently been accepted into the AGNP program at UC and i was excited until i started searching for job prospects online and there are very few available that doesn't specifically say FNP only. Whats your thoughts on this for future marketability since your in the home stretch? It has started to make me question my choice. Any additional insight would be helpful. I am one of those who worked critical care for years and have a massive fear of treating children (not to mention how broad the FNP role is). I prefer to look into ortho, nephrology, cardiology, pulmonology and etc.

I was also accepted to UC for Spring 2017!

Congratulations to everyone who got in for Spring 2017! i am in my second semester of the AGNP program. The courses are the same for FNP and AGNP, with clinical courses the second year which distinguishes the two. I am still thankful every day to be in the program!

As for the Adult NP route and future job prospects, there are different ways of looking at this. Anymore, a lot regarding employment has to do with who you are and what prior experience you have. In addition, the school you attended plays a role, as apparently enough students from 'trade schools' have shown up in settings which no longer hire NPs from those schools. This is not advertised. Another reason we can be thankful for acceptance into UC!

I would like to find out if University of Cincinnati send mail OR e-mail regarding MSN admission decision?

I applied for Summer 2017 & have yet to hear anything back.

I appreciate any feedback from you guys. Thanks
