    I don't think it's worth the cost. It's far too expensive, and I don't think the support during the program is that great.

    Oh, totally. I mean, to be perfectly honest, I think no matter where you choose it's the same BS (bullsh#!) degree. Doesn't hold a candle to real floor nursing experience in terms of difficulty. Put in the time, tell them what they want to hear (your instructors) and VOILA! bachelors. It may have been a bit more expensive than some other programs but it was still in the ballpark.

    The problem of not getting an insta-job. My area is saturated with BSN's so it really only helped a bit I think. Your area may be different. It's tough out there right now no matter what you education level....

    And, oh, FWIW, the lady that hired me was VERY impressed I had gone to Chamberlain. She said it turned out good nurses....

    In the program now and have some specific questions about the classes so I know if I can work and take two at a time and which ones to combine? If you are willing to share your experience would you be willing to email me so we don't waste everyone elses time here?

    They don't have any clinical hours because you're supposed to have done them in your ADN program. I know others like that.

    I'm working full time nights and I'm taking 2 courses per semester. Started in January, will be done in December. Was originally supposed to be done in October, but Capstone course has to be taken by itself, so that bumped me out until December. So far, so good

    I am starting the RN-BSN online program in Jan 2017. I am trying to get Microsoft office on my computer any hints??

    You can get Microsoft office free sometimes if you enter your student email and your school is on the list of one of the applicable schools. I attended an ADN program and used my school email to get Microsoft office for free for four years. I would try that before buying anything. If it doesn't work, you can always use Google Docs to type your papers.

    The school provides it free from their software store.
