    Oh i got ya...yes places that have a lot of nurses are really starting to look at hiring BSN only, often I see 'bsn preferred' around the country, but not required...at least where I am looking around!

    Do not fear that completing your BSN will be anything like your ADN-it's not. Not nearly as stressful, and my program at least, no real tests. Just responding to other students for the most part and papers. Pharm and pathophys were of course different stories. But the rest of the program was way way way more doable than your ADN program. If I were you I would start chipping away at classes asap-even one at a time so you can just start on it...also most schools hold you to the requirements at the time you enroll, not the time you graduate...so if you wait longer to enroll, they may add more classes you have to take between now and then.

    just wanted to give you encouragement that you can do it! it's not that bad! don't pysch yourself out.

    good luck

    I really appreciate your words of encouragement. Thank you for representing nurses. We need one another to give us that extra push to say, "You can do it". I am still deciding between Wyoming and Boise, but I know whatever one I chose I will success at. I will contact the school I have chosen to attend by Friday to get upcoming deadline dates, etc. Thank you again for all of your quick replies, suggestions, positive reviews and most of all encouragement. You are wonderful nurse!

    How strange, I just got an email for this thread. I don't even remember asking about UOW in this thread. Anywhoo, I did graduate from UOW in May and the program is doable. Yes, they did cut the clinical portion out where you had to find a public health facility or home health care agency. That cuts out the stress in 1/2. That was my problem, it was very hard to find a preceptor. The good thing about the school is it's graded and you will not have problems in applying for an advanced practice degree. Some schools are pass or fails with no grade, but this school gives you a grade. I didn't walk, which I was dissapointed about. I couldn't secure regalia and I was not going to fly to Wyoming and not able to walk. The school is good too since they are part of Sigma Tau nursing honor society. I was invited to be a member and it looks really good on your record if you are applying a graduate program. The good thing about the program is it's affordable and you will have a degree at a university level.

    Hello! I might have posted a comment directly to you. Congrats obtaining your BSN! I am impressed so many Univ of Wyoming graduates have expressed positive comments. With an abundant amount of schools to chose from, this school by far stands out on top. Thank you for replying. If you decide to continue on to graduate school, I know you will do well!

    Hi beetlebum,

    I am also in the UOW program, taking 1-2 classes a semester. It is great to hear from people that have graduated! I am taking the Cultural Diversity class this summer, and for some reason it's a struggle. Any tips to get thru it? I plan on 3630 Health Promotion and hopefully Statistics in the fall. 5 more Nursing classes to go.

    That is exactly what I am doing, just take one class at at time. Slow and steady wins the race. We will get there.

    I just received an acceptance letter to the college! It is such a relief to read so many positive things about this program! I just e-mailed the school asking if I could take one class at a time. I guess that I should have came here first. I will e-mail the application for the RN-BSN program, my license, and submit the $30.00 fee in the morning.

    I am so looking forward to getting started. I'm brushing up on my math. My wife is very competent w/ algebra. Therefore, I'm not worried. I want to get one class done so that I can better gauge how to blend being a full time worker in a stressful SICU, a husband, and father of three. I have taken some on-line classes. However, my children were younger then. They require a lot more stimulation now. I don't want to neglect my children or my wife.

    I'm proud of myself and I'm proud of you all. Let's keep up the strong work!

    Hi Probably,
    I have been taking 1 class at a time for the last year! It is very doable for me that way. I know some class mates are taking 3-4 classes and I don't know how they keep up. Good luck on your classes.
