Since it seems that there's quite a bit of interest, I'm attempting to start a new thread devoted exclusively to the OU on-line RN-BSN program that will hopefully build on the comments on assorted... Read More

    the box that says '
    You must have at least 3 credit hours in each area and a total of 32
    hours. Nutrition, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Chemistry,
    Intro to Psychology and Intro to Sociology meet the Applied Science
    and Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences requirements.
    Cross
    Cultural Perspectives, Fine Arts and Humanities and Literature

    are offered through the Academic Outreach Program.' Says it all thanks!
    I knew it wouldn't cover it all but there is quite a bit of overlap...

    Hi .. what rn-msn program is 7200 $ ?????
    That's roughly what Ohio University says their on-line RN-BSN program costs. It assumes you have all the prereqs (math, stat, micro, nutrition, etc) but it is among the least expensive out there. The Univer of Texas-Arlington touts theirs at about $6,500 - that's the lowest cost program I'm aware of.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I thought you meant RN-MSN. I called the enrollment specialist yesterday. They said they have all my transcripts and I should receive a email in about 6 weeks.

    Aspen University is about $7200 for RN-MSN, and I am told with a AS degree in nursing and current license you get into nursing right off, no pre-reqs, AS degree is your pre-req. All online, 2 starts a month, CCNE. And you can even ask to have the DEAN call you and she will or email!! And you get live person on phone. no BSN given, straight to MSN, educator or leadership. Also Western Governors Univ is less money for BSN if you work your 6 mos semester correctly.. not easy but can be down in 6 mos, they also have RN-MSN. They have pre-reqs but not alot of liberal arts stuff like Univ at Arlington, Univ of Wyoming. I have not spoken to Ohio Univ just read what people have posted..seems they require alot, tiers and stuff..seems complicated and I hear alot of complaints about them not responding promptly or DARS not being correct until student fights. And waiting months to get DARs, that is bizarre to me. Just sharing ideas.

    Thanks shannon, I want to keep up with what they ultimately tell you, cuz I am hating to have to take a lot of unnecessary courses. Also if I have to take the gen ed classes there to be sure they accept them, its a lot more oney than I would be paying here locally... I was reading about what they charge for normal out of state credits...its quite a bit more...not sure how to approach it, if I should try to find classes here and hope they count, or wait and maybe not have enough money....I would like to know if they accept your chemistry, since they dont offer it online....my school offers a fundamentals of general chemistry, I was hoping that would be sufficient if I made a good grade..Im an a student. Cept a B in microbiology uggg!!!

    SO far I have taken

    Anat 1 and 2 (A for both)
    Microbiology with lab (A in lab, B in lecture)
    Sociology (A)
    General Psychology (A)
    Developmental Psychology (A, And someone said they may accept this for the Child development)
    English comp 1 (A) (havent taken two, do I need to?, or is english comp 1 sufficient to satisfy the junior english?)
    Understanding theater (A) (Hoping this will satisy the fine arts.....but it wont satisfy both humanity and fine arts will it? (One can hope)
    Principles of nutrition (A)
    Medical terminology (A)
    Intro to pharm (A)
    whew...thats it so far, Im beginning CNA classes at the red cross in four days, and I start ADN program in August. I want to be sure about where and how to get my bachelors, because I ultimately plan on becoming a CRNA (Hence the CNA classes to get my foot in the door at sacred heart hospitl, so I can possibly get a job when I graduate directly into ICU.

    If you have a sec, how do you THIK they will treat my DAR?

    Thanks and good luck

    ALso I never took a college math class, but when I took the college placement test, they tested me out of having to do math. I noticed it says ohio accepts math courses labelled 109 or better as being sufficient to satisfy.... 110 is college algebra, so...I was thinking, since i dont have advanced placement, i dont have SAT or ACT scores, will they accept CPT tests i wonder, or should i take a college algebra before going?

    looking over Aspen Univ site it still looks like you will end up taking the same courses as with a BSN for OU ( regarding your liberal arts courses) and it looks like you have clinicals hours for them as well.The MSN specialty are not any that I am interested in( am looking into a NP or CRNA program. So I will stick with OU. I think the communication problem are their biggest issue but the rest I find normal. So I will keep going. Im still doing the math on how long it will actually take for me to finish but I dont think it will be much over 1 year

    Tiffany: You will need to take Math regardless of what level you tested to at another school. The 109 or above courses are their classes.Not courses from another school. You will need algebra prior to taking Statistics. I would say your best bet would be to take what ever general education courses you need prior to admission.

    Anat 1 and 2 (A for both) THIS WILL ACCEPTED
    Microbiology with lab (A in lab, B in lecture) ACCEPTED
    Sociology (A)ACCEPTED
    General Psychology (A)ACCEPTED
    Developmental Psychology (A, And someone said they may accept this for the Child development)ACCEPTED
    English comp 1 (A) (havent taken two, do I need to?, or is english comp 1 sufficient to satisfy the junior english?)YOU NEED ENG1 AND 2 TO GET YOUR FRESHMAN ENG REQUIRMENT.
    THIS WILL NOT BE COUNTED FOR YOUR JUNIOR ENGLISH. yOU NEED A 300 LEVEL ENG CLASS FROMA 4 YEAR COLLEGE NOT A 2 YEAR.
    Understanding theater (A) (Hoping this will satisy the fine arts.....but it wont satisfy both humanity and fine arts will it? (One can hope)THIS SHOULD COUNT
    Principles of nutrition (A)iF THIS WAS A COLLEGE COURSE FOR NUTRITION IT MAY
    Medical terminology (A) Intro to pharm (A) DONT THINK THESE WILL COUNT TOWARDS ANYTHING

    I just wanted to let people know that when you call Aspen University they explain the AS degree gets you into the RN-MSN program.. you do not have to meet the liberal arts requirements for the new RN-MSN program,, the web site explanation of credits needed does not apply to College of Nursing. Your 2 yr degree in nursing is all the pre-reqs you need. I was concerned but I have spoken to others who confirmed this is correct. It is new and I do not go there but thought others might find the price appealing and want to investigate further. Of course it is not for everyone but those looking for Educator or Leadership might have interest.
    Shannon, can I ask what your area of nursing your degree will be in? I thought NP was something you got after getting MSN, sorta post-graduate? Does Ohio offer MSN as NP??
    I am still not positive what I want to be when I grow up! Just scoping out other ideas. Appreciate all the inof you have shared
