I asked my advisor that, she tried to say that some school will still take it even if the school is not accredited. But other schools require the transferring credits to be from an accredited school. The advisor seemed very confident that they will obtain accreditation and told me that 2 of their members actually sit on the CCNE board.. I really am in limbo. I’m also trying for Stonybrook FNP

Yes, Stonybrook has one, and it’s pretty good from what I hear. The application period is open now for summer 2020. I’m so tired of doing essays 😩 I also wanted to go to frontier online, but they have NY applicants on hold due to regs

ugh I am going to email the program director of Utica College tomorrow with some of these questions. I will write back whatever answers they have for me. Lawrd I really don't want to waist my money. Now i'm also wondering if my job requires the school to be accredited in in order to give me the tuition reimbursement. that would definitely be a game changer... #frustrated ugh

I've been looking at other school requirements for transfer credit acceptance, and all 5 schools I've looked at so far require the credits to be from an accredited school in order to be accepted 😞

I called multiple schools also and they stated that it needed to be accredited and they needed to be identical classes in order to transfer. I am registered for classes, but am hesitant. If it were a hybrid program I believe that they would get accredited no problem. However NY has alot of regulation for online programs, especially NP programs. So I think that is where they will have a hang up of there is any issue by CCNE.

Hi ! So I just actually applied myself to this program, I live in Brooklyn as well and it’s so hard to find an online program for FNP. I know someone that attended this college in Florida but it was for her undergrad and had no issues. I did notice the accreditation thing also but then I saw it is in fact CCNE ? I was checking out stony brook as well but it’s not available until summer 2020, although it’s only another six months after Utica’s start date I kinda wanted to get a head start already and the process I guess just seemed easier considering stony brook would have to first get back to me regarding my application status like way into next year, then I run the risk of lost time that’s all. 
 

any updates on accrediting for Utica? What’s everyone else’s expedience And who’s going for January 2020?

I’m just praying that it happens soon, I mean they are accredited for the bachelors, I don’t see it (wishful thinking) it would be an issue for FNP but when it’s not accredited we can still sit for the board no ? Or does it mean no board no further education .. now I’m confused (not that any are ok but..)

It is accredited Regionally through the middle states commission so you’d be able to practice in NY, NJ,PA,DC etc.  not nationally Through the CCNE. I’m gonna call them. I was So excited to be accepted yesterday for jan2020 but now I’m confused

Wow. I’m very confused too. I actually sat this semester out (Utica) because I was afraid I would be wasting my time and money. I applied to Stonybrook but won’t know if I got in until February. I am looking into alternatives, like Molloy, Pace, Downstate.

PriPat, I have to do some investigation on what the regionally accredited means.. does that mean we will never be able to be CCNE certified even if they eventually gain accreditation?
