    I'm really thinking you should stick with your other endeavors that don't include nursing. It doesn't sound like nursing is for you. Flame me all you want, but... nursing schools are churning out a bazillion new grads a year these days and I'm finding more and more of my coworkers really don't have a passion for it... and it shows. Also, I highly suggest some English/language arts classes if you are seriously considering nursing school.

    I think actually that it's very surprising that a person in 2015 is 'wary' of online education. Nearly every brick and mortar school has an online component these days.
    I completed both my BSN and MSN through WGU and am currently enrolled in a DNP program. My research completed at WGU has been published and presented to national audiences.
    That's great for you, and I am glad you had such a good experience.

    That being said, I am surprised you find it surprising that people are wary. I don't hire people, but I have heard anecdotally of people not being able to get jobs or paying exorbitant amounts of money to get a degree they can't use. As nurses, it would be unwise to not have some corroboration or evidence when making a decision about furthering one's education, which is why I checked in here.

    I seem to have struck a nerve, and that was not my intention, but let's be honest, some online programs ARE looked down upon, weather or not they deserve to be... hiring managers make that decision, not the person who went through the program.

    But thanks for your insight and congrats on your publications.
