Noticed some RN-BSN courses are 3 credit hours. Is the work load noticeably less than in 4 credit hour classes? I am considering doubling up on a couple classes if I can, any suggestions?
Those are 3 credit hours for semester credit, vs 4 when it was quarter hours. Supposedly semester hours are worth more than quarter hours.
Program requirement for graduation are down from 192 under quarters to 120 something for semesters.
It's like having dimes and nickles. You have 5 nickles and 3 dimes, but the 3 dimes are worth more than the 5 nickles. Does that make sense?
I don't know if the work load is less, b/c theoretically you have 15 weeks worth of material instead of 10 weeks, that's why they are worth more.
You might want to talk/email an advisor before you take the leap.
