- Mar 23, '09 by RNGrad2006Quote from suenaz64Well good luck in your program. I plan to be done by Summer and am looking forward to finishing but must say that I have enjoyed the program. That is weird that they make you take a semester first. When I started they were pushing for 2 courses at a time but I wanted to take it slower for a variety of reasons. Dont worry about the statistics it is not as bad as that but I definitely worked harder on that class than any other. My husband says a lot of people have Math phobia and need to embrace it. He is a computer geek and has taken Statistics and thought he would be able to help me but he didnt remember much and said it was different (more applied approach) But I made it through with GPA intact so don't worry it is possible. I was glad to get it out of the way though. I suggest getting the study guide...it helped to narrow down the key points and gave practice questions that were helpful to prepare for the exams.Thanks so much for your input. I just started taking classes and they won't let you double up until you've completed 1 semester. Not a bad idea - then you're not as likely to get in over your head. I think I'll go into seclusion when I take statistics. I'm a living example of math anxiety!
- Mar 26, '09 by elizzyDo they allow you to take the whole course online? I've been wanting to get more information from them, but been evading their calls since I expressed interest in it last year. They've been pretty persistent altho I'm still considering it.
- Mar 26, '09 by SWcitygirlThe RN to BSN is entirely online. I'm only in my first class but am very pleased so far.
- Mar 27, '09 by RNGrad2006The entire RN to BSN program is online and it is set up well. That is what attracts a lot of students basically from all over the country. It is interesting all the people you meet. I love the program and have learned a lot but that being said the administration is not as good as the program or the instructors for that matter.
- Apr 28, '09 by arizdolphinDoes anyone know about the BSN program for those with a non-nursing BA? I will be done with LPN soon.
- Jul 4, '09 by ougreeneHi,
I started in May 09 and got my first grade = A...Summer quarter starts next week. Many Assignment due every week, discussions, paper etc...Doable...I work full time have 3 kids (4 if you include my husband...)....Great education!

That is so funny...that is how I posted a lot of my cyber cafe responses that I have 3 boys and one if them is 6'3" (hubby). Good luck in the program. I just finished my BSN last week and am now looking into taking the Masters in Nurse Education. Figure might as well just keep going while still in student mode. Hubby is not on board so may take a few months off and start in January 2010. Doing the classes gets easier and after a while they get a bit repetitive. I just recently found out that for those that already have a lot of undergrad classes that there are programs out there (ie) at Walden University that will let you do RN to MSN with taking a lot less classes if that is a end goal. Wish I had known that prior but live and learn. But think I learned a lot through the program in particular with research that think it was worth doing. And with tuition reimbursement it did not cost me a dime except books. I consider myself very fortunate. Good luck...and keep plugging along. It goes by fast. Took me just over 2 years (started March 2007) by doing it slow since I didn't want to pay out of pocket but think I might do it even slower with a MSN since it would give me breaks in between especially during the summer. I did summer classes for the BSN to get it done but having summers off is NICE. Again...good luck and you will be so happy with your accomplishment when you are done!!!! It was fun going to graduation.
