- by zoeyzoe Sep 20, '10I was considering going through this university for my RN- BSN.... The school claims the program is only 13 months and 6,450 if all you need are your core nursing classes... If you need pre recs it's can still take you as little as 13 months, but it's an extra 349.00 per course... This seems very reasonable... Just wondering if anyone has gone through this program or is currently doing this program?

- Oct 7, '10 by muslimrn2BI was looking into this program ,too. I was contacted by a counselor. I don't know too much about it. From what I read, the program is 15 months. I know someone who started taking intro to nursing a couple weeks ago. He has good things to say about the school. Please, if there is any more information, or anyone has graduated from there, I would love to hear from you.

- Oct 9, '10 by zoeyzoeQuote from agldragonrnwell i love excelsior... because it has helped me to obtain, what i, other wise could not... my lpn to rn @ my own pace. but, here in ga, where i live, the school doesn't have the best reputation... it's just looked @ as an online school. i know differently, i know that i learned alot, and it wasn't a cake walk.... never the less, with the job market the way it is, i think it's 2 my advantage to get a bsn from a different school...hey zoeyzoe! just curious why not ec for the rn-bsn? if i am being nosey, you don't have to answer. :d
i still want it 2 be online and affordable... hopefully i can get my bsn finished in 18 months of less.... the university of texas at arlington is a traditional brick and mortar university with an online option...
- Oct 9, '10 by zoeyzoeQuote from LPN_2005/RN_10That would be wonderful!... Also how many general ed course do you have to take, and does that make you have 2 go longer then 13 months...I'll be starting UT-Arlington's RN-BSN program next month. My first 2 classes are Technical Writing and Professional Nursing. I will keep everyone that is interested in this program up-to-date on my progress through the classes.
- Oct 9, '10 by LPN_2005/RN_10I have 9 general ed courses to complete. So if I take 2 classes every 5 weeks, I should be done in no more than 18 months.
- Oct 11, '10 by muslimrn2Bso it does not follow a traditional semester?
- Oct 11, '10 by LPN_2005/RN_10No, it doesn't follow a traditional semester. If it did, it would take me about 5 years to finish the program taking 2 classes at a time with my 9 general ed courses and 9 nursing courses. But there are some RN-BSN programs that follow the traditional 16 week semester...you'll just have to shop around.
And I see that you're not a nurse yet, so this program will not pertain to you until you get your RN license.

- Oct 12, '10 by muslimrn2BActually, you don't have to be an rn. They have a traditional BSN program online, too. You just have to finish all you prerequisites like any other nursing program. But, I'm sorry I didn't see that zoeyzoe was getting her RN-BSN. I guess thats another program and different application. Still, if there is anyone who went for traditional BSN, I would love to here from you.
