post MSN certificate FNP and/or DNP school experiences

by shestandsMSNRN (New) New Nurse

Has 26 years experience.

I have my MSN in Leadership and Management. I am now going for my FNP. 

I have applied to Maryville University and University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USA). 

The Maryville program is post masters FNP certificate program. 

The USA program is BSN to DNP - FNP program. 

Has anyone taken either of these programs? Can you tell me the pros and cons of the FNP program? 

Or does anyone recommend a post Master's FNP program that they really had a good experience at? I am not opposed to applying at them all. 

Thank you - Shelly Standridge, MSN, RN
