ASN to BSN and ASN to MSN Programs

  1. Im interested in locating these type of programs in Central FL but Im curious as to how competitive it is to get in. At UCF there is an ASN to MSN program... The minimum gpa is 3.0 but I know thats not necessarily what will get you accepted. Im trying to figure out if my best option will be to take ASN-BSN and then possibly BSN to MSN, or try to get in the ASN to MSN. The program is only 2 years, which is very cool. It would normally take about that long just to get a BSN fron an ASN...so it must be very fast paced. They also have a ASN to BSN option that is online. Im assuming the ASN to BSN programs are pretty easy to get into, but the MSN is probably highly competitive since its accelerated.

    St Petersberg College (near Tampa)also now offers an ASN to BSN program online that Im interested in (online BSN degree at community college prices? Cant go wrong with that!).

    These are the only two that I know of. Does anyone know of others that would be reasonable in price and are either within driving distance or offered online? I know Jacksonville University is online but very expensive.

    It will be December 08 when I finish the LPN to RN program, but I like to start planning early for my next move.

    Thanks in advance for any info or resources.

    FSU offers an RN to BSN program that is online. UF also has an RN to BSN/MSN program but I am not sure if it is offered online. They do offer the program at Shands in Jacksonville and of course on campus in G'ville.
