    Has anyone taken the Capstone course at Chamberlain college of nursing in their online RN to BSN program? I will be taking it in July and would like to have an idea of how much work it will be.
    Thanks!

    I took it in 2010. There were many elements that had assignments (i.e., papers) such as your project introduction, the PICO question, a literature review, a design for change in practice, and a summary of all these elements (with a PowerPoint). The idea of a capstone is that it is a culmination of your learning, so you'll be demonstrating many concepts that you learned during the BSN program. We also did a peer review of each other's final PowerPoints. It was "busy," but not terrible as long as I kept up with my assignments and the required discussion posts as well -- can't forget those! Good luck, and congrats on being almost done!

    Thank you so much for your input. Its scary going into a course and having no idea what to expect! I have friends in other programs doing capstone and theirs involves a lot of volunteer work. I'm just looking forward to being finished!
    Thanks again!

    No problem! I felt the same way before the capstone -- didn't really know what to expect until I saw the syllabus! Just remember I did my capstone three years ago, so it might have changed. The description still sounds the same in the catalog, though.

    Lunah,

    Did you take Capstone alone or with other classes? I am still on the fence as far as taking EBP and Capstone together! Most people don't do this combo so I am finding it hard to get info/feedback. Hard to imagine it taking more time than Stats.

    I took the capstone by itself.

    Have you checked the catalog for the prerequisites to the Nursing Capstone class? Last I knew Capstone had to be the very last nursing class you take in their RN-BSN program, and it cannot be taken in in conjunction with any other nursing classes. However, you can take it with a non-nursing class such as economics or religion. FYI, EBP took up a lot of my time. It was pretty foreign to me and I put a lot of effort into it. I recommend taking EBP with a non-nursing class such as math, religion, or something else that you would consider to be easy and won't take up too much of your time.

    Hey smile_through_it

    I too will be taking the Capstone course online through CCN in July. Since it's your last course, I'm assuming you will be graduating in August? I am taking Economics and Capstone together and will be graduating August 31.

    Maybe we'll be seeing each other in the same class on the discussion board.

    Good luck,

    Jess
