Fastest (<9 mo), multiple start dates, under 10-15K, online RN-BSN?

  1. Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone has up to date info on the fastest (can be finished in 9 months or under), under 10-15k tuition, multiple start dates, online RN-BSN? So far, I have researched only 2 and that's Chamberlain and TexasTech. However, those were from posts years ago. I'm just wondering if anyone is up to date with other RN-BSN's?

    State does not matter as long as the tuition is under 10-15k, but CA, TX, or even AZ is preferable. I have to rule out for-profit and WGU.

    Only one that comes to mind is WGU. At least with all the research I have done.

    I'm in the same boat and so far have decided on WGU. Just getting all the prelims done now. Why not WGU?

    Graduate schools look at WGU differently. Has to do with the competencies at WGU and how courses won't transfer/count.

    You might want to check around more - lots of peeps on here have had their WGU degrees accepted at NP/MSN programs. You do receive a 3.0 GPA for the purpose of those programs. Anyways, will be interested to know what other options you come up with as I am working on the same thing. So far I'm sticking with WGU, but there's still time to change my mind.

    Check Out Ohio University. It will take me 13 months. Generous on transfer credits. Nursing classes 5 weeks. Tuition $243/Credit out of state.

    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

    (And here, all these years, I thought I was the only one here who thought of that every time someone asks for recommendations for the quickest, easiest, cheapest nursing program ... )

    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.
