Just Finished First Semester RN-BSN

  1. 0
    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!

    Awesome!! I just finished my 3rd class at Chamberlain -- we have to do a lot of posts (at least 3, each on different days of that week), and most classes have had at least 2 papers, if not more. But I like to write, so no biggie.

    Great job on your grades!! Woo!

    I would so rather write papers than study for exams. My program has no exams, we are just graded on participation and projects.

    Oooh, that's nice! We have both midterms and final exams in ours (so far, at least), in addition to the discussion participation and papers.
