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 previous threads. I'd like... Read More

    As of 12:42 AM on 4/25/2012, I can OFFICIAL say that I am DONE, FINISHED, FINITO with my BSN program at Ohio University. Although the past 15 months of going to school non-stop, while working, and taking care of my family, has had its challenges, I am still happy that I attended OU. Thanks Chuckster for creating this post. Who knew that one post would grow into this amazing lifeline for so many of us. Thanks to my cyber angels Casey and Angela, for your words of wisdom. Thanks to my graduation buddy Steph….I am in AWE of you. After hearing about your family, workload, and school schedule, I knew not to complain about ANYTHING being hard. And thanks to all of my cyber-buddies out there (too many to name), that kept be laughing when I really wanted to cry, and let me know that it would be all over SOON ENOUGH!!

    I will now start clearing off my kitchen table. I haven't seen it in 15mon. I will start take photos again. Haven't "really" touched my camera in over 15mon. And I will go back to my every day life where I don't have to worry about quizzes, discussion boards, and APA format.

    I'm not sure what I will do next education wise after a much needed break. I thought I wanted to be a FNP, but realized, that's not my passion. I think for now, I will continue to make a difference in the lives of my pediatric patients, and see where that leads me.

    Continued success to all of you!!!

    Love,
    DeltaRoxxy

    Congratulations to you!! Good luck with deciding what you want to do with your future!

    I just finished 451 That was a lot of work, but it was 6 credit hours with the 2 classes combined. Was the book being used between Transitions, and then again Legal/ethics the only book that was used more than once? As far as I can tell from the book list that was the case. But just wanted to make sure, before I sell my books.

    I decided to save my book from the Legal/Ethics class because I still have to take Intro to Ethics. I thought I could use this book as a reference.

    Just an FYI to all of you who still have electives to take. Check out Cincinnati State Technical College and Sinclair. They are much cheaper than OU, I think around $85 per credit hour and their courses transfer. Just check with your advisor before taking a course there. I was able to take philosophy, nutrition and music through Cincinnati State and saved a lot of money. Good luck!

    If you are taking this class with professor L you do not need to worry about referencing, it is not even required and if you decide to than the textbook from the course is sufficient! That class had a DB and a quiz once a week and a nonproctored midterm and final. No papers whatsoever!

    They are moving to semsters in the fall too.

    The nutrition class was at Cin. State: 1202 Nutrition for Healthy Life with professor C.A.(I would HIGHLY recommend this class with this professor. It was a GREAT class and no stress, you could easily take this with 2 other classes).

    The music class was JAZZ at Cin. State and I would NOT recommend this class at all, but I know they have other options. My TA was reluctant to approve JAZZ so I would check into different options for this one.

    The philosophy class was at Cin. State: 1621 Intro. to Philosophy. It wasn't bad, just made you think differently. I always felt like my brain hurt after doing assignments. There were two tests, not bad at all. A homework and discussion board each week, not too bad.

    I know my friend took classes at Sinclair. A chemistry class and some anthropology class, just not sure which ones.

    Just make sure you get the okay from your TA before registering for classes.

    Good Luck!
