    What is the cost of UOP's RN-BSN program? I looked at their website, adn did a search here, but see no mention of cost, other than UOPs website saying it costs less than a traditional degree. I see that financial aid is available-but still, no mention of the actual cost.

    So, how much does it cost? Thanks!

    costs too much!!!!!!!!! LOL

    Someone said this is the more expensive of the RN-BSN programs,... what is there out there that's cheaper, but still all online? I'm almost done with the admission process @ University of Phoenix, and I was quoted 22k, and a BSN in 19 months. I have an ADN, and have been working almost a year. I don't want to take a bunch of lower division classes again, like statistics, more anatomy and physio, ect,... which is what I've been told at all the local state schools. Any insight as to other 100% online RN-BSN programs would be appreciated.

    This was helpful
    I attend two RN course class room if I went back it would be online only the because of traffic worst imagineable pain 10 out 10 (lol) to make a 6PM class on time,I also took 4 other business courses with them.
    The Fees might be higher for online, you do save on text books they are online
    and modules outlines are also. The cost comes in with group communications and presentations I say add another $200.00 to every class for groups
    Also the group grade counts 20% to 25 % of your grade.
    It not as easy as people think, UOP is not for the lighthearted and sensitive people. It not a cozy college either. Research what other degrees at UOP gave People out there, It for the working Adult, They want you to be working FT also the courses are 5 weeks long each. I do not think this program was for me in nursing. Maybe the Business Degrees is where I should of stayed. I can always go back , My GPA was 3.8. ,the ? is do I want ? Good Luck

    I have been looking into UOP. Is there anyone who has actually completed the RN-BSN program through this college?

    I talked with someone from UOP, who was very helpful, but a little pushy about me applying... quoted me $25,000 just from what I told her about my Associate's... I am weary of for profit institutions and their bottom line, to make money... just my 2 cents

    I've been looking around for RN to BSN programs lately. I currently have a BS and almost finished with the ADN. I'd like to get the BSN online as quickly as possible without having to repeat any nonsense classes. I requested info on UOP's website and was appalled by their marketing tactics. I did the mistake of including my cell phone on the information sign up, not sure what I was thinking. I kid you not, I was bombarded with phone calls the next morning, a la telemarketer style. It was ridiculous. At one point they called me like 2-3 times per day and due to my busy schedule, its not that I didn't want to pick up [at least to tell them to stop calling!!], but I literally had no time to because I was always at work or school. This all continued for about 1 week, until they stopped, and sent an email regarding UOP in general. This really repulsed me away from the program and made me think, is this legit? I think my job has some agreement that will pay for UOP so I'm not ruling it out. But if there is any RN's out there that completed the program or have any useful input, please post!

    Hi everyone

    I'm a student at UOP (University of Phoenix). I obtained my Associate's Degree through UOP's School of Business online. And now in my 5th class in my undergraduates degree. My degree is a BSB not a BSN, but that does not make a difference in cost of tuition. My husband is inquiring in going to school here to obtain his BSN. He has an Associate's of Applied Science and has been a RN for like 8 years or so. He was going to go to UT (University of Texas)'s Arlington Online Nursing program, it is a 14-month program and cost less, but so far their process has been horrible. Their counselors are the worst and cannot communicate. The information is not available and everyone gives us different information. I guess we are spoiled because when you apply at UOP, you spend maybe 30 minutes talking to the counselor, they send over paperwork that takes maybe 15 minutes to fill out - then they do the rest. In the meantime, they get the college courses set up for you and communicate with you throughout the process. You can live chat with a counselor instantly at phoenix.edu, making counselors very accessible versus UT's horrible communication process.

    Despite the cost of UOP, I highly recommend it as a student who has been attending for almost 3 years. They have a solid online website, better than other universities offer (if that is the route you want to go). Their counselors are communicative, accessible, and oh-so helpful. And like every college, you do come along a bad professor every now and then - I have had 2 or 3, but most professors (they call them "instructors" are great). The homework assignments are ideal and apply real-world situations through simulations and various exercises. I have really enjoyed it so far. The only thing that is keeping us from not enrolling my husband is the cost of tuiton! The UT-Arlington online cost is half that cost! So, unless they can allow him to take some prior learning assessment classes to keep him from taking additional courses to save us $, then, we will likely be sticking with UT-Arlington unless the lack of communication and lack of professionalism escalates.

    Oh, by the way, my mother went to UOP online RN to BSN nursing program 5 years ago. She, like my husband, had her Assoc in Nursing, was an RN, and got her BSN from UOP. It helped her get a great job and she is personally my inspiration as I work full-time, have kids, and continue to go to school full-time.

    I hope the information I provided was helpful to those of you inquiring. If you don't mind paying (considerly) more for a better learning experience and much better counselors and service, want to attend an online school with a strong educational record, than UOP is for you. But, if you are concerned about money and/or don't want to pay a fortune, find another school where you can still get a quality education, you will likely not have the great service that the counselors at UOP provide, but hey we all have bills to pay, and honestly, as a current student at UOP. As much as I do love it there, its $$$$$, one of the most expensive out there and they raise tuition every year!

    i don't know you but you sure are white washing the uopx experiance. be careful i had a as-lvn and for my bsn from them it will cost about 36k when all is done. oh and the counselors are a joke. nobody knows what is going on at any point of my program.
