MSN Capella University-- Any previous students who can provide me with some advice?

  1. Hello everyone! As it is the first of the year I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year!

    I'm a BSN prepared registered nurse and am currently in a new grad program of a small hospital. I've decided I want to start an MSN program and have been comparing many of the online schools and traditional universities. I was interested in Western Governors University because of it's low tuition but didn't like that they don't issue grades. I've never been to a traditional university like a cal state so I looked into it as well but am afraid that the schedule and times of classes will be inconvenient with work, as I still don't know if I will be night or day shift once I complete the new grad program.

    With all that said, I've looked into Capella and their curriculum, tuition and flexible schedule seem most appealing and convenient to me. I'd like to get to know the thoughts and perspectives of students who have completed their MSN program prior to enrolling though.

    *Are you provided with plenty of resources and instructor/mentor assistance if needed?
    *If working full time, did you feel two classes at a time were doable?
    *What are some of the disadvantages you felt Capella has, compared to other universities?

    THANK YOU EVERYONE in advance for taking the time out of your busy lives to respond to this post!

    I know this is an older post, but what did you decide on? I'm enrolled to start the RN-BSN program in July with plans to continue through to the MSN program. I would love to hear your input on this school if you ended up attending. Thanks

    How do you like it so far Amie? I started Capella's MSN program last week and so far so good it too early to say.

    I am also looking at Capella's for their RN to BSN/MSN option. Those of you who are in this program how do you like it? Any opinions would be great!
