could you direct me to which programs are the best in the state? i have looked at UW bothell and UW tacoma and can't tell a difference, but i thought that someone might have some inside info, like which has the better teachers or which has a better reputation.
thank you in advance. thinking of moving to the pacific northwest, so info on other universities that offer RN-BSN would be great. portland etc. etc.

Sorry, I don't have any input on which schools are "better".
I can tell you that University of Washington in general has a good reputation.
Most of the nurses I know who have or in the process of gettingtheir BSN chose Washington State University because they have programs geared toward people who are working & going to school and several locations around the state.. http://www.it.wsu.edu/AIS/ADM/cgi-bi...cgi?college=06
Another option is Gonzaga in Eastern, WA which offers both a BSN & an MSN http://www.gonzaga.edu/Academics/Col...ng/default.htm
As for Portland schools the only one I know of that offers an RN to BSN program is Oregon Health Sciences University. http://www.ohsu.edu/son/
I live in SW Washington, the 2 schools I can choose from for a graduate degree are WSU & OHSU. If money were no object my personal preference would be OHSU due to its reputation and extensive clinical opportunities.

Thanks for the link to the Linfield program.
I thought they offered an RN to BSN but didn't see it when I looked at the site (which is kind of embarrassing since the info is pretty obvious).
And they have an online program !
