Distance learning via University of phoenix
- 0Apr 21, '03 by grace7990I am an OR RN and have been thinking of going for my BSN/MSN and maybe NP. After researching all the options available in this area the distance education with U.O.P seems the most feasible option despite the comparatively high cost. Have any of you enrolled there and what was/is it like? Is it worth it? Also, sometimes I feel like I am too old but I would really like to get my MSN and maybe get into OR education which would also probably be a better way to offset the student loan payments I would end up with. Any opinions out there, I need some advice, been thinking about this way too long!

You mentioned feeling like you are "too old"- I am a diploma graduate, finally finished my BSN at 48, and will graduate this month with an MSN at the age of 50, and there are people in my class even older than I am!
Have you checked out the University of South Alabama? Not sure if it would be any less expensive than UOP, they do have a distance education track, and I believe have a distance FNP program. I know one person who graduated from the education track, and was very happy with her program.
If this is something you want don't let your age deter you from going back to school.
