University of Phoenix RN-BSN
- 1Mar 8 by brenda1234I am so excited and nervous to start the RN-BSN program at this school !!
I know a few nurses who became clinical nurse educators or administrators who completed a masters degree in this school. But do not know anyone who completed a BSN here.
I was at a previous university that was kind of difficult for me because of the timed tests.
after speaking with the admissions counselor for hours asking 1000's questions I decided to enroll at UOP.
So far I have read great things about it. I am doing online only. Took the workshop and it seems like a lot of work but doable & not as stressful as 20questions in 15min quizzes like I was at a previous school.
Anyways, I am taking this as a second chance to get my BSN!

I decided on UOP instead of Jacksonville because
UOP is giving me a $2500 scholarship for signing up before may
there are no weekly tests-- mostly writing assignments & if there are tests then it is an open book.
with the tuition reimbursement at the hospital. Plus a 5% discount for being an affiliated hospital-- (my employer)
UOP ends up being $15K. ;-) and I work part time. If I worked full time I would get $2k more knocked off the price. But I work part time.
and all the books are included in UOP.
i wish I would of gone there from the beginning!
I have a coworker in Jacksonville & she has quizzes each week. Has to pay for her own books. & has a "proctor U"
writing my thoughts and research is my forte & I think I made a great choice with UOP.

I do work full time, and my hospital has not affiliations with any school but they give a 10k lifetime allowance for education. I have 3 kids at home and want a school that cost less money per credit and that the classes are not 5 weeks long. I dont want my time so crammed that I have no life either. You only get one of those too! a life... That puts UOP and Grand Canyon out. I was also looking into American Sentinal University as well as Jacksonville. I have all the info and start date for JU but waiting for other to compare.
- 0Mar 30 by five10fevrI am currently on my 7th class at UOP. They took almost all my ADN credits so minus two math classes it is all nursing. You write a paper each week, discussion questions, no real test, and some group projects. It does go by really fast with most classes only being 5 weeks long. It is defiantly doable. Best of luck to everyone that has decided to enroll.
I picked UOP because I have less pre reqs then any other school. Plus I saved 25% for a year do to an agreement with my employer.
