I am currently in the ADN to MSN program at Frontier with about 4 terms till I finish my CNM specialty. The ADN to MSN program like any newer program has some bugs still being worked out, overall it is an excellent option for those with an ADN.
There is no issue with a state regarding the bridge. The program is not a BSN program, students will not be awarded a BSN when they complete the bridge, rather students are granted an MSN when they complete their specialty tract. In other words, the bridge is not a MSN program in itself rather a Bridge between the ADN and MSN. In order to obtain the MSN portion students complete a specialty tract (CNEP = CNM, FNP, or WHCNP=women's health care nurse practitioner).
All off the Frontier programs are accredited which is the typical state requirement.
Students complete their didactic learning online using various media depending on the course and all clinical residency takes place in a geographic location selected by the student. I will tell you, clinical residency is something each student is strongly responsible for researching and securing. There are multilple levels of individuals involved in the clinical residency however the school does not secure a site for students. Students are required to precept with only CNMs with at least 1 year experience. The bridge program is very competitive and small numbers (usually less than 30) of students are admitted to each class. All things to consider when reviewing ones school choices.
I can't say enough about the program. The school is also very "family" oriented and encourages students to stay connected to classmates for support and extended learning experiences. Now it's back to school work!
Best wishes to you as you explore your options.
