Online University | Online Degree Programs | WGU
is an NLN Center of Excellence, 100% online, fully accredited, non-profit and costs $3250/ 6 month term, books included.
West Coast is an expensive, for-profit.
Choice is yours. Even if you don't choose WGU, do some research before you decide. West Coast PAYS to do these presentations to unsuspecting students.
Thr marketing of the for-profits underlies their true intentions which is always to increase their enrollment numbers.
Since they are beholding to "stakeholders" profits are important. This why they budget at least 2:1 if not more towards relentlessly trolling the schools
and internet to find folks like you.
As you have said the pitch is enticing. That's because these ladies and gentleman are practiced marketeers. They are nothing if not about "numbers" and that would be you.
So since you are already steeped in the lingo of nursing, online RN-BSN would be fine for you. I just think that the school that has been pitched to you does not have YOUR best interests in mind.
Additionally, they will require you to sign an arbitration agreement which negates your day in court if you find they have deceived you.
Most for profits do this and they should stand behind their product without you having to give up your rights to be heard by a jury of your peers.
I agree with the prior poster that there are schools extant that will give you a a solid education at a reasonable price and without the predatory, smile in your face jive.
