I'm interested in applying to an online BSN program. And thoughts about any schools? the best ones? I'm looking to complete my BSN as accelerated as possible. Any feedback is appreciated!

Western Governor's University is completely work-at-your-own pace, so you can accelerate it if you choose. I know many people who have completed their RN to BSN in less than 6 months. The best thing is that you pay per semester (each semester is 6 months long), rather than per class, so if you can complete it in 6 months, you will only pay for that semester, regardless of how many classes you take during that time period.
The drawback of WGU is that their grading is done as pass/fail, rather than letter grades. A pass is considered to be the equivalent of a B, so it will look like a 3.0 on a transcript. If you're looking to matriculate into a competitive graduate program, this might hinder you.

When you say accelerated, do you mean you have a bachelor's degree in something else? Or are you a RN looking to complete a BSN? There are also LPN-BSN type programs too. Could you be a little more specific?
