    I am doing the RN to MSN at Western Governors University online where i've already gotten my BSN in the process. It's all online, you have 2 terms a year, 6mo ea. So if you buckled down you could theoritically finish in a year. It took me a little more than a year to get my bsn. It's accredited - many of my classes I had from my previous BA and ASN was accepted- psychology, history, etc When I started WGU I had to take Stats, Biochem, nutrition- I would say Stats was the most difficult but I had my own personal tutor. They have online tutors at WGU as well as course mentors that can help. Unlike a regular class, it wasn't remembering all these formulas, it was a couple but mainly you're making sure you know the concepts. If I passed it, anyone can. WGU is growing quickly as well. Other schools online would be Chamberlin (expensive), Capella (has a similar concept as WGU now of competancy based learning. Good luck in your endevor.

    I started at WGU with an ADN and a BS in another discipline and was done in 5 months, 3 days.
