If you are interested in advancing your medical career, Frontier Nursing University is a great choice. Located in Hyden, Kentucky, a small town of 365, you will be truly be getting the small town America experience. The town is located in a rather mountainous area which had led to difficulty expanding commercial and industry development.
In the Frontier Nursing University program, nurses can become either a midwife or a nurse practitioner. In fact, the school used to be known as the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing. The following degrees are offered at the University:
- Post-Master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice
- Master of Science in Nursing
- ADN-MSN Bridge
The ADN bridge program allows students who have an associate’s degree the ability to earn a master’s degree in nursing, which is a very big draw to some students as a master’s degree vastly increases a student’s marketability. Getting a master’s degree without first getting a bachelor’s degree is very difficult, but the Frontier Nursing University program helps provide students with a unique opportunity. If you would like to apply, you need at least an undergraduate GPA of 3.0, but you do not need to take any form of standardized testing. You can receive financial aid through federal loans, scholarships from the institution, as well as external medical scholarships. If you are ready to jump into small town life and become a nurse at a great school, the Frontier Nursing University program has a great opportunity for those willing to put in the effort.
