    Hi!
    I found this thread through the search engine. This thread was 5 years ago, so how was UOW? i actually enrolled for the fall semester. I am not in the program yet, but I'm taking their pre req pharmacology class. I just want to know how your experience taking classes online and just how the program is in general. I am from Los Angeles, California. Hopefully you can make the time respond.

    Hi everyone. I am taking Patho and Intro to higher education at Wyoming. They are a lot of self study. Intro to higher education is well organize.
    Has anyone taken Pharm yet? Any tips.
    What other classes are required or recommended and why?
    Has anyone found good helpful places. I still need to take Stat and I don't have college math. I am terrible at math?
    Thank you

    Gige,
    I took pharmacology last semester and it is alot of work. Keep up with the reading and notes and you will do fine. This semester I am taking Advanced Assessment N3045 and a History pre-req through correspondence,I plan to take Cultural Assessment this summer and hopefullywill be starting to work on my math credits.

    Vasfar 2001,
    Seen you are attending Univ of Wyoming. How do you like it so far? I was excited to see many students (BSN) enjoying the program. I work FT in Psychiatry and was wondering do you also work FT too? Is it difficult to take 2 -3 classes at the same time? How long do the classes run? How do you arrange your clinical hours or does the school have contracts with facilities in your area to chose from? I reside in California. Did they accept all or a majority of your lower division credits? Sounds like you are doing well in your classes. Keep up the good work. I look forward to your response at your convenience.

    2boys1nurse,
    I have had to take history, art, college algebra, statistics, and a public speaking class in addition to the BSN classes. I have been taking 1-2 classes a semester and it has been alot of work for me working part time! The semester last 15 weeks, the summer session is 12 weeks.

    wanted to say hi again to everyone, I grad from u of wyo and want to say the classes were all very doable.

    2boys1nurse-they have done away with the clinical hours requirement, so I think the class will be you gathering info in your community and writing a paper. They accepted nearly all of my lower division credits without issue (my one problem was with an AP class I passed in high school-they didn't accept it so had to take the class).

    good luck

    . Congrats on finishing!!!!! Any suggestions on what classes are best to take together and which classes should be taken individually? I am going to attend this school after all the positive comments I have read. I also appreciate the semesters are 15 weeks; not accelerated. Did you finish the program in 2 years? Were you able to complete the additional pre-req at a community college? Do they offer the books electronically or did you purchase them on your own? Any drawbacks to the program? Again congratulation! Will you next pursue a MSN degree?

    Congrats on graduating! Wow 2 BSN students with positive feedback to University of Wyoming! Any drawbacks to the program? How many classes did you take per semester? Did you attend summer school? Were you working FT, PT or not working at all while attending the program? Going on for MSN? I was feeling a little down about having to pursue a BSN, but now I feel as though I can conquer all with this program. Thanks again for your comments. They are inspirational! Did you already graduate? If so, did you attend the ceremony in Wyoming? Are the papers 5-10 pages in length? I have been out of nursing school since 2006. Don't like writing papers, but I know it is a requirement?

    I took classes each semester including summer the first years, actually it seems like I was always in something! I didn't have any trouble with the program, and the only drawback for me was the clinical hours (which they did away with). The first year I took about 4 classes fall and spring, then started toning it down to 2 as I was also going to emt school and working 2 jobs and had 4 kids. I always knew I would go to grad school so that was the draw of completing my bsn from the beginning. applying for 2013 start. Why do you feel that you 'have to' do the BSN? or are you planning on grad school too?

    Yes just graduated. I did not attend the ceremonies, altho I originally thought I would, now I am just too busy!

    Papers vary in length, each class has at least one, most around 5-10, but one was over 20...just took that long to put in everything they wanted. I think it was the health assessment or family assessment something class. They grade the papers very easily-not like you are in English class and they are raking it over. I am a perpetual student! You will do fine!

    Thank you for the quick reply. I just got back from a 2 night stay at a Hotel & Casino in San Diego County. Many employers here in CA are mainly hiring BSN graduates. With the abundant amount of ADN grads they are weeding out those applicants for BSN grads. I think by 2020 they want nurses to have their BSN. I want to have it so I can be more marketable and be qualified for upper management positions if I chose that route. I am not wanting to start until Jan 2013 so I can ensure I get my oldest child situated when he transfers in January 2013 out of state to a 4 yr college; God willing. Unsure of grad school at this time. I can only think as far as a BSN. Depending on the outcome of this task will determine if I go on to grad school. After nursing school, I am not to enthused to return back to school. Both my stress and anxiety level were off the chart and don't wish to visit those moments anytime soon. Thanks again for the positive feedback. I will decide between University of Wyoming and University of Boise.
