    I did my RN-BSN on-line through Chatham University. It was expensive (ending up paying around 20k), but from start of program to graduation was 8 months and they are a recognized, legitimate private school out of Pittsburgh, PA.
    Heard about that one. No exams supposedly.

    As always, I am reminded of the project management triangle, AKA the triple constraint: "fast, good, and cheap: pick two." Best of luck in finding a program that works for you!

    Oh, let me throw this one into the mix: University of Louisiana at Lafayette | RN to BSN Online Degree
    Another good choice.

    "Fast, good, and cheap: pick two." Great advice! I am once again reminded of being a Generation Y nurse who demands everything right away. There was an article on Medscape that compares the different generations in the nursing field. Quite funny, and true....

    Any nursing leadership conference I've attended where learning is discussed will usually include the different generations and their learning styles. It's funny but true, much of it! I'm a generation X-er, but I have a (sometimes ridiculous) work ethic, whereas some X-ers are known for slack.

    That project management triangle applies to most things in life. I made a sign with that saying for my ex-husband, a tattoo artist. It holds true there as well.

    I did my RN-BSN through Chamberlain. I can't say it was easy per se -- it did take a lot of effort, lots of writing, etc. -- but I can say that it sure as heck was NOT cheap! I had great tuition reimbursement and a small scholarship to assist me, though.

    Check Out Ohio University. It will take me 13 months. Generous on transfer credits. Nursing classes 5 weeks. Tuition $243/Credit out of state.
    They only accept students from certain states. I'm in Illinois and we are excluded :-(

    No I would just like for this thread to be revived as I kind of have the same question and dont see the need to start a different thread.
    Do you know of any Universities?
