RN-BSN options

  1. I am wrapping up my ADN program this May and am looking to move into an RN-BSN soon after. I am wondering if anyone knows of the cost, overall satisfaction, chem requirements of the following:

    Grand Canyon University
    Walden University
    Mt. Carmel
    Frostburg State University
    Chamberlain College of Nursing
    Drexel University
    Excelsior College

    Thanks everyone who is able to offer some information!

    Have you looked at western govenors? It's way cheaper than these programs.

    Thank you. I did look at WGU. It is very inexpensive, however, I did not like the way the classes were graded as pass or fail. Thank you for your suggestion.

    Excelsior has no chemistry requirements. I'm finishing up the capstone now. The program is very doable! I began the nursing courses last August and took four course during that one semester, took 2 last semester, and now I'm 11 weeks away from the BSN! Your costs will depend on how many credits you have for transfer and what you are left with to take. I would also take a look at American Sentinel University, too, since they are cheaper than Excelsior College and offers all 8-week courses. I plan on getting my MSN in Case Management from them as soon as this BSN is done.
