Ohio University RN-to-BSN Program - page 198

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

    Hi all, I have a couple general questions about OU's program. Once you start, must you take a course every 5 weeks, or can you stop and start as your schedule allows? Is it an option to take the courses in 10 week blocks? Do you decide which one you want at the beginning or can you switch between the 5 and 10 week sessions?

    The above post mentioned NRSE 370 J for the junior comp requirement, does anyone know if that will be available online?

    thanks!
    For the RN to BSN completion program, all nursing courses are 5 weeks long. They do have classes that are 15 weeks (no more 10 week come fall) but these are the non core nursing courses. So that would depend on what you need. This includes the Arts requirement, cross cultural, statistics, junior level english, nutrition, etc. Just depends on what you have taken in the past and what you may still need. All the courses are available online for the most part.

    As far as taking time off, you can take time off if you need it, but if it is anytime besides summer there is a form you have to fill out to start back up. So you can't really just do a class or 2, take a break.. come back.. take another break, so on.

    You can see when all the core nursing courses are offered, as each class is NOT offered all the time, so you can plot all those out. Then you need to fill in whatever other courses are needed.

    Might be good to point out if you are getting fin.aid you to take at least 6 cr hours/ semester. Semesters are 15 weeks long, the classes are still 5 weeks each/so 3 courses per semester. Non nursing courses are 15 weeks.

    My advisor did not know anything about the new Nursing Junior English class. Has anyone heard anything more about when this my show up on schedule? If it doesn't come forth I will be graduating two weeks later because of the Junior English Business class. Yuck!

    I believe if you stop you have to reapply for admission, but I'm not 100% certain about that. I had a friend who took some of the nursing classes in a 10 week format and some in a 5 week format. However, I don't know if that option is available with the change to semesters in the fall. I was told at the beginning of the year that they were working on a NRSE 370 J for the junior comp requirement that would be in a 5 week format. I would venture to say it will be online. I am taking Business JR. COMP now, and it is online.

    Just want to clarify, the last class, excellence CAN be taken with another nursing class, correct? I plotted all my classes out last night, and I should be able to finish in April. I wanted to double up the rest of the way through, besides session A for fall, but the way the classes are offered it's just not possible.

    Any word on the Nursing Junior Comp class? It does not show up on the Fall schedule. Is this really going to happen?
    I have sent another email to my advisor to find out if she has heard anything.

    I transcript is literally worth the paper it is printed on, plus postage. The rest is pure profit. Many schools raise the cost of transcripts when the budgets fall short, because after all, the Alumni area all successful and rich and should support their school, right? ;]
