RN to BSN--Grand Canyon University--Let the fun begin Sep 30 2013 - page 223

Howdy all, I bit the bullet and after much research, I decided on Grand Canyon! Wow, I did not expect BSN schools to be like used car salesmen--hounding me by emails and phone calls. Rather... Read More

    I think most of the classes state "intensive writing" pretty much every class had 1 paper or powerpoint due each week..sometimes a 2nd item due as well......

    Hey Flames9 thanks for the info but I did see specifically in the catalog that it has a asterisk stating intensive writing just like the spirituality class. Believe me I don't have a problem with writing papers it's just the crazy comments from the professor. I have had 8 classes prior to that spirituality class and never had any kind of grading issues with my APA format . I used the GCU template ,but in that class the professor would make things wrong in all crazy places on the rubric like flow and sentence structure and grammar etc, but never gave any feedback. But 8 professors before her never had issues with my writing performance. It's so funny how very different they all are but like you said before just check the box.

    I hear you OLD DOG. My spirituality instructor was difficult. He knit picked at everything. As I said in the other GCU thread, I was barely made an A-. I knew going in that it would be a class that could sink people, because it's totally underestimated. The professor in spirituality deducted points that other instructors did not.


    Every instructor is so different. My ethics prof would not accept any paper that was written at a 9th grade level. So not only did we have to be APA proficient, but we had to constantly check the grade level and aim for 12th grade or higher.

    Hi all...I'm just about ready to take that leap to start my rn to bsn at GCU. I've been read these posts for a month now. I read WGU then GCU and I'm at the that point where I have to make a decision Is anyone starting at GCU in October 2016? I'd like to hear how or why you chose GCU. Reading your posts is definitely helping me think that it is doable but tough. I do want to go on and get my msn and that's also why I'm defintely leaning toward GCU instead of WGU. Any advice VERY welcome

    Why GCU: School reps doid not hound me with phone calls/email......evaluated my transcripts for free and they did it fast.....thought the price was fair.....liked the 5 week class length....no tests.....its a brick & mortar school.....best of luck
