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

    I still can not find any information on this and the school is less than helpful. If anyone can either give me a link to the proper thread or give me direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    Just search RN to BSN knowledge center on Ohio.edu. Then click on online completion, and then click on spring offerings to find it in the future.

    I'll be starting Nursing classes in January (2013) and I have signed up for 4510 (Professional Nursing Practice), 4530 (Family Nursing), and 4560 (Gerontology). I'm wondering if I have bitten off more than I can chew or is this doable? I work 3-ten hour shifts/week. Thanks for the input!

    Are you taking them all at once? Or one 5 week class at at time, if that's the case you will be fine, too much to chew if you take all three at once, just know that since they have combined classes it's been crazy and unorganized!!!

    I'm 8 months into the program and am wondering if this is going to be worth it. Seriously, I am getting so tired of school, and yesterday I figured I have 14 more classes that they say I need to take. It wouldn't be so bad if they all were in the 5 week format, then I could complete 3 per semester. But most of the gen ed courses are 15 weeks, and I can't do more than 2 at a time.

    I work 2 jobs(about 48-50 hours a week), have a mentally ill 15 yr old, and am shall we say an "older nurse". I keep asking myself, why am I doing this? I spend 15-20 + hours a week on these nursing classes. So, I have given up most anything that is fun in my life. I never see my friends anymore. And getting my BSN won't mean a pay raise either.
    If I were 20 years younger, I might not feel the same way, but as it looks now, it is going to take me 3 years to get all of these courses done. That gives me only about 8 -10 years of working left.

    Any of you older diploma grad nurses out there? How are you keeping yourself motivated?

    Cincinursemary, don't give up. You have made it this far so you obviously have the passion to achieve your BSN. I have to admit, I have wondered if all this school is worth everything I have had to sacrifice. Having my BSN won't make a bit of difference in my career or pay. I too am looking at about 10 years left (maybe a little more). I had to seriously sit down and question myself as to why I am doing this. Right now management at my job is making it almost unbearable to work there. I have been there too many years to just pack up and leave, not to mention now I am using the tuition reimbursement. I realized I am not doing this for anyone but me. I want my BSN. Maybe for no other reason than to hang it on the wall. But I know one thing, I will be proud of it. Keep going, you owe it to yourself.

    Thanks........ It's nice to know that there are other old hens in the mix. I am actually a much better student now than I was so many years ago. I think for me it is the cost mixed with the time. I have to plan this out to see when I will really get done.

    Does anyone know if the Nursing courses schedule is available for more than one term at a time? I thought I had see it one time, so that I could plan out the rest of my classes, but I can't find that anymore.

    If you go to the RN to BSN Knowledge Center, on the right is a PDF of course offerings to 2014.

    I am another "older hen" in the mix. My original plan was to get my BSN and continue on after that to become an NP. Now that I am three classes away from being done with my BSN I'm not sure anymore. I am completely burnt out on school and am feeling like after this I don't want to go to school anymore. The time and cost involved in school is high and I just don't know if I can take another 2-3 years to become an NP. I wish I would have done this a long time ago but it wasn't in the cards back then. I too am a much better student than I would have been when I was younger.
