I just finished my first semester this week in my on-line RN-BSN program. They are 7 week semesters, and I am going full-time, taking two at a time. This is a few of my thoughts for any interested. I didn't think two classes at a time was too much at all with working full-time. I was taking ethics and women's health. Ethics required very little time. There was a discussion board you had to post on at least once a week, and one small paper to write. That wasn't bad, but the downside was that the instructor pretty much ignored us the whole term. I understand it's supposed to be student driven learning, but she hasn't even given us our grades!! :angryfire
The women's health class was great. The weekly discussions were very interactive, and the teacher actually participated in the weekly discussions. We had a small paper, an individual powerpoint presentation, and a group powerpoint presentation. I really felt that I got something out of this class.
I believe I am carrying A's in both classes!
I can't wait for the next term to start next week!
