35 pages long papers to write while in RN-BSN program?

  1. 0 I heard you need to write like 35 pages long papers during RN-BSN program. Is that true?
    I understand writing 5-10 pages per paper but if each paper you need to write needs to be 35 pages long... Thats seems a bit excessive.

    I just completed my RN-BSN through Regis University online and the longest paper I wrote was around 12 pages. There is a LOT of writing...not just papers, but also in the discussion forums and group projects. As long as you are focused and can set a routine, you should do fine. Regis provided writing tutors which was EXTREMELY beneficial in the beginning. Good luck!

    I just completed my RN-BSN program and my longest paper was my practicum and it was 25 pages...that was way over the suggested number, however I'm a "fluff" writer...love my adjectives. I also collected sooo much information in my clinical time that I wanted to add everything I had learned that was pertinent. I can't imagine what a 35 page paper would consist of and can only imagine the poor grader having to muddle through that. I felt bad for them having to read 25 pages of mine!

    Nope, the vast majority of my papers were between 3-7 pages, I think. My practicum paper was about 15 pages.

    I agree I finished my BSN through WGU in August and am now working on my MSN in Education and the longest paper I have written was around 10-12 pages and that was for my Community Health Practicum. Most papers I have written are between 2 and 5 pages and a lot of the tasks are creating PowerPoints too, not necessairly papers.
