I'm weighing the pros and cons between Fort Hays' online RN-BSN and KU's online RN-BSN program.
Did you look into FHSU when you were wanting to complete your program? How much of your tuition does KUMC pay, and what are the stipulations--do you have to work a year for each semester, etc?
I have heard a couple of nurses comments on FHSU, and all have been positive. You seem to think KU is meh. Where would you have gone if you could do it over?
The main reasons for me to consider KU is 1) I already have a degree from there, so transferring undergrad credits won't be as difficult I assume. 2) I'm thinking of the RN-MSN program--if I bought books etc for the undergrad program, I'm assuming the masters program would utilize the same basic books, with variation dependent upon the actual classes. If I went to FHSU, I'd have to buy a completely new set of books. Since I shelled out an even grand for my nursing books
for my LPN to RN, I feel this is something to consider.
KnarfKS, could you tell me a little more about your KU RN-BSN experiences, and why you might choose to go somewhere else?
I'd appreciate it;
