Can anyone that’s in the program or done it give me some insight into theirs? Do you go there for a skills lab? How are the instructors? Do you feel prepared? Amy information is appreciated.

I am currently in my first semester of UWF's FNP program.  So far, so good!  I was drawn to the program mainly due to price, it's a public institution, and being essentially in my back yard.  It's a fairly new program,  and my cohort is either the 3rd or 4th.  I was very surprised how competitive it was to get in, 200+ applicants and only 60 accepted.  I am finding the classes challenging, but doable. I work a full time job and have young kids.  I know it will become more of a challenge when clinicals are introduced.  I like the online format, but its not as flexible as I was hoping it be. It is a full time program, no part time or flexible option. The instructors are very invested in us, supportive, and easy to communicate with. However, like all graduate programs be prepared to teach yourself.  Also,  lots of busy work reminding me of my BSN program,  but I think this is universal in all programs.  Once again,  I just started but I am very happy with my choice. 

 

Hope this was helpful

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me a quick overview! 
 

Im still waiting on acceptance or denial!! I applied in Feb I believe.. for the august date & still haven’t heard anything! I hope I get in... the money is great for the program. 
How many classes at a time do they make you take? Is it all online?

 

I wasn’t able to find a lot of info because the program is rather new so I came on here hoping someone was already attending ...

I have applied to FNP program for August. I am kind of nervous to start here because I don't think there are any OOS students. School does not have any info on state autorization. I inquired about it and answer was " Its student reaponsibility to find out from their state's BON.

Yeah I asked my rep and all they said we have to wait for decision. It seems very competitive because it’s such a small cohort. Hopefully we get in!! I’m in Florida but Miami ... so I will be online

Just FYI we didn't get notification of acceptance until three weeks before classes started....it was very nerve racking.....?

I actually found out that I was accepted by checking my status via my UWF profile.  It was three days later when I got official acceptance by email.
