Walden's RN-MSN....worth it? or BSN first???

  1. I am currently an ADN looking to advance my education. I originally was looking into and RN-BSN online program when I came acrosss Walden. They offer a program for ADN-MSN in just under 3 years...sounds perfect for me. Only catch is that I do not obtain my BSN along the way as they condense the BSN portion of the program.....My question is, does this matter? Looking for any and all advice.

    LOL...thanks........Walden actually just called regarding my transcripts and said that they are offering FREE summer tuition for the June 25th start! So the offer just got sweeter! How can I turn that down???

    look really carefully at the fine print. Free doesn't mean without restrictions.

    Good luck

    Yes...still have to pay for books and 'technology' fee but still saves me a chunk of change

    I have been attending Walden for my BSN and love it. I'll be finished in the Spring and debating doing the MSN for NP. It's not too overwhelming online since I can work on assignments whenI have a day off. I work full time and have 3 kids at home. Haven't had any issues with Walden though.
