    I love the program. Each class is 8 weeks and flies by. I have been in the program for a year and will be done in 6 months. I take one class @ a time as I am still working 36 hrs a week as a hospital staff nurse. Go for it!!

    I graduated from JU's ASN-to-BSN last year, it was great. Took me exactly a year to finish.
    Now I'm doing my MSN through Chamberlain.

    I saw that there was a lot of general education classes to take?? is this true?

    Before nursing school I got my AA in general education. Then I got my ADN. So I didn't have to take any general ed. courses before starting my RN-BSN courses.

    I am considering JU, Umass Boston or UTA- It seems everyone had good experiences at JU. Was it terribly expensive?

    Hello. I'm wondering if anyone who is in the Jacksonville University RN to BSN program can give some insight on how classes are. I have applied but I'm a bit apprehensive on the two courses that require a practice project. It seems like it will take quite a bit of time and I'm already experiencing anxiety just thinking about it.

    Anyone out there in the program now, or perhaps someone who has already completed it give me some info???

    Thanks!

    Hello flymedicRN24. Jacksonville is one of my top choices but I'm waiting on admission decisions from 3 other schools. Once i get those, I will choose a school. Did u apply anywhere else? What made u choose Jacksonville? Are u familiar with the program?

    Hi pandorasbox. I felt the negative issues seen with the bbb with CGU and the coach at UTA helped me decide. I also like that the classes at JU are web based as well. I like seeing and listening to instructions. I am also able to contact the instructor directly. At least that is what I am told.

    I do not know of anyone personally who has went. I just haven't found negative things about the school.

    I live in Florida, so I can also apply for additional grant money awarded to FL residents. I just feel they have more to offer me. I hope that ends up being true.

    So my adventure starts Jan 7th

    Congratulations on your decision. I was already accepted at Jacksonville, but like I told you, I am waiting on other schools in order to make a final decision. I'm in FL right now visiting family, but that won't get me a discount, lol.

    Is Jacksonville a well known school? Just wondering how it will look on a resume.
