    I don’t see a GPA requirement for the MSN online program…is there one?

    • Administrator said:

      Hi Candice,

      Thank you for the question. For most programs the GPA requirement is a 3.0, but you can check with an Enrollment Advisor at 866-225-6764 or info@nursingonline.uc.edu.

    I was accepted into the FNP 1.5 years ago. At the time I was unable to start the program due to my military obligations. When I last was looking into reapplying I was told there was a wait list for the program. How long is the wait list to start the FNP program? If I reapplied would I have to wait to start if I apply for Fall 2012? Will I need to resubmit all documents for admission?

    • Pamela Bush said:

      Lindsay, I am glad to see you are interested again. The University of Cincinnati does not have a waiting list for our FNP program. We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2012 term which starts in August 2012. Based on the fact that you had to leave the program for military obligations, you may have more options than having to reapply. I will have your program manager reach out to you to discuss in greater detail or you can contact us directly at 866-225-6764 or info@nursingonline.uc.edu.

    When the conversion from quarters to semester takes place, will the FNP program have classes in the summer? I know that with the quarter system we have summer classes but with semesters I wonder if that will change. Thanks

    • Pamela Bush said:

      Sharon, thanks for your question. Yes, there will be a summer semester. Classes will take place in fall, spring and summer beginning fall 2012.

  • Laura Hoste said:

    I have had my application process on hold due to family obligations. I see the spring term is full. The next application term is fall 2012, correct? Thank you!

    • Pamela Bush said:

      Laura, due to increased demand for the program we have filled the spring term. At this time we are accepting application for the Fall 2012 Term until 6/1/12. If you are interested in applying, please click here to view the application process. If you have further questions, please contact an Enrollment Advisor at 866-225-6764 or info@nursingonline.uc.edu.

  • Kate said:

    I am completing my BSN and I have a current cumulative GPA of 3.8. I completed by associates degree with a GPA below a 3.0. What GPA does the university use?

    • Pamela Bush said:

      Kate, thanks for your interest. The UC College of Nursing looks at all post secondary transcripts to determine each applicant’s cumulative GPA, so it would be a combination of the associate degree and your BSN program. If you would like additional information, please contact an Enrollment Advisor at 866-225-6764 or info@nursingonline.uc.edu.

    Hello-
    I am looking to apply for the FNP Program for the Fall 2012 start date. I see that the application deadline is June 1, 2012. I know that some places have earlier deadlines for their FNP programs due to increased demand is this the case for this deadline or is it the same as the other programs?

    • Jennifer, the application deadline of 6/1/12 is the same for the FNP program.

    I’m just starting my last semester of the ASN-BSN at Western Governors University where a Pass/Fail system is used, rather than a grade point. I’ve been told–and it seems to me–that a “Pass” is equivalent to a “solid B” letter grade, and the rubrics are strict. But there is no GPA. I also have a BA in Psychology from University of South Florida, CGPA was around 3.8, and I stayed on the Dean’s List. My ASN was from Excelsior College, but because as an experienced LPN, I took performance assessments for some of my clincial classes, or provided transfer or CLEP credits for electives, there are some courses that also won’t have a grade. Generally I am an A student, but is my track record going to have enough nursing “GPA evidence” to qualify? I’m pretty excited about the MHNP option, so I figure I’d better let the bubble be burst now if need be. But I’m hard to discourage, so I’d welcome any suggestions as to how to solve that dilemma. It’s also going to be hard to get an instructor’s evaluation letter, too, because we just don’t have that kind of contact. (It’s an unusual system, but it works.) It’s been too long since USF, too. Professional letters from supervisors might be much more do-able.

    • Hello Peri, thank you for your interest. We are no longer offering the Psych Mental Health NP program here at UC. For answers to your other specific questions please call us at (866) 225-6764 and one of our Enrollment Advisors will assist you.

  • Peri M said:

    Hi again,

    I’m also most interested in using an MHNP to work with adults, but like Yvette S. who asked back in September, I am wondering how the new regulations for transition to FMHNP vs AMHNP will work. Will those of us enrolled before then be “grandfathered” into practice and given a time period in which to add on the skills/certification for working with children? Do you anticipate offering a post-
