So, I hastily decided to apply for UTA's Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Program for Spring (January) 2020 start. I was accepted, and I've been excited to move on to this next phase of my career. I had dinner with a friend of mine who graduated from a FNP program at UTA a couple of years ago. I asked her what her thoughts were on the clinical part of the program, and if it was difficult to get a preceptor for clinicals. She told me that she had heard that people in my area have a really difficult time finding clinical spots and that I should start calling around now. While I really appreciate her advice, I find myself really second-guessing my choice of schools at the moment. I had previously come across Texas Woman's University (TWU), they have an FNP program, and they market it as though they find clinical placements for you. While I would prefer the Adult-Gerontology program, I'm not opposed to an FNP program. I'm curious if anyone has done the TWU FNP program and if they can provide details about the clinical placement aspect? Is that a legitimate claim? Did you have to drive hours out of your way to said placement, or was it relatively close to where you live?
