I indeed went to UMSL, but I did the traditional BSN program and not the RN-BSN completion. I don't know how different the two programs are, but I was very satisfied with my program. Pretty much all of my instructors were top-notch and I felt like I walked away with a terrific education.
But I do have to say that some of the classes seemed more like "filler" courses than anything. We took a class called nursing informatics, and everyone passed that course with a perfect 100%. Not that I minded getting the easy A, but all I could think was "what in the world did I just pay $1500 tuition for?" All we did was answer some questions, send it to the instuctor (it was online), and she would send us a reply saying we received the maximum points and "Great job!"
All in all, I would definitely recommend UMSL. Congrats on starting your program!
I know this is an old thread, but i hope that you can give me a crash course on what to expect. Did you do online or onsite? And how did it all go? Which classes were the toughest? I'm registered for 12 hours of nursing classes this Fall and I worried about the course load. Any advice?
