    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 :-(

    Why? did you have a question?
    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?

    I had excellent tuition reimbursement and only needed 32 credits, so it was worth it for me, yes. I did learn a lot, and like most programs, you only get out as much as you put in. I would advise you to explore less expensive (not for-profit) schools as well. Good luck!

    Capella University has a new flex-path program. Pay $2500 every 12 weeks and do as much work as you can in that time period. It just started in Jan so there's not much feedback about the program yet.

    And, there are no disscussions with fellow students. The professor assigns the work they want you to do and the student does the assignments, at least for the Nursing classes. It sounds like something I would like. I'm taking two online classes right now with Excelsior for pre-reqs and I really don't like the disscussion part personally. I just want to do my work. I'm hoping someone who has started the new flex-path with them will comment on how they like it.
