    After TONS of research on just about every online RN to BSN and RN to MSN program out there I finally made a decision and started at Grand Canyon University this week! Granted it's only been a few days but I'm already loving it. (Haven't had to turn in a paper yet though so I'll update after that haha) I decided to get my BSN first and my plan is to go directly into an MSN program after that [emoji4]

    If you're looking into going back to school I say go for it!

    Did you decide where you are going? I'm waiting to find out if I can afford Jacksonville, that's my first choice. Any idea if we are considered grad students for the entire program as far as financial aid goes? If I can take out more than the undergrad limit of $12,500/year than I'll be able to start in May [emoji4]

    Has anyone here attended Jacksonville and could maybe give feedback about it? I have the opportunity to start the RN to MSN program on May 2nd and would LOVE to hear from you if you've attended!! TIA

    I'm in the process of applying to schools for RN to MSN programs and am wondering if you are considered a grad student for the duration of the program.. Jacksonville University offers a BSN and MSN as part of their RN to MSN but you don't get either until you finish the entire RN to MSN program so does anyone happen to know if you're considered a grad student the entire time? Waiting for call backs from the university financial aid offices but thought I'd ask [emoji4]

    I'm an ADN RN with 7 years floor experience and I'm getting ready to go back to school online. My ultimate goal is an MSN ed and so many schools offer RN to MSN programs without a BSN. What's your opinion? Do I need that BSN along the way too?

    Help please [emoji4]
    I'm an ADN RN with 7 years of critical care experience and would like to pursue an MSN asap. I'm just confused as to whether I should commit to an RN to MSN program (one in which you do not earn a BSN as part of the process) or should I do an RN to BSN/ MSN (which costs much more).

    Do I really need BSN after my name if I have an MSN?
    Any advice (including schools) is appreciated!

    I'm grateful to see your posts, I just applied to SNHU and am curious about their program. Are any of you planning to go on to an MSN program after your BSN?

    Hi. Congrats on your acceptance to the program. I'm enrolled in the RN-MSN program & will be starting my 4th quarter. I'm glad & can relate to your enrollment experience. I am happy with my learning experience so far & I hope the same to yours. Welcome to Capella University!
    Hi, I hope you don't mind me asking you a couple questions about your experience with Capella [emoji4] I saw your previous posts so thought I'd ask if you have any input.
    Are books included with the cost of the program? How did you decide whether you'd pursue the RN to BSN MSN vs the RN to MSN?
    Thank you!

    Hi, I'm waiting for a call back from Capella but am curious about the overall cost. I'm an ADN RN wanting to pursue an MSN in either Leadership or Education.
    After looking at the "cost calculator" on Capella's website it looks like it'll cost around $20-21k for the RN to BSN/MSN program... But it costs more if I just did the RN to BSN only option?
    Any input on the costs, the program itself or whether 3 classes at a time is doable would be appreciated! (I'm off work for 6-9 months after an injury). I'm willing to take out a $25k loan if I can get an MSN in approx 2 years or so and from all I've read on here it appears there are many happy Capella students.

    I'm wondering the same thing about taking 3 courses at a time. I'm currently off work for at least 6-8 months after an injury so this would be a great time to tackle as many classes as I can.

    I also worked OR and home health and hated the call and felt burned out as well. I think the OR *can be* a high burnout environment. I transferred to the ER for a totally different experience and enjoyed it and learned a lot, now I'm heading back to school full time to pursue an MSN and possibly go into Nursing Informatics (haven't decided for sure yet). I'd suggest transferring to a different type of nursing or maybe go back to school before totally giving up on nursing??
