I'm researching online RN-BSN programs and basically have it narrowed down to two: Capella and Western Governors. I've gotten a lot of helpful information about WGU from that particular thread, but I haven't seen as much about Capella. I've spoken to an advisor and we did an unofficial transcript review; with the discounts offered through their ANA partnership, I'm looking at $15,711. (Yes, they were that specific.) So the price is right.
I guess my biggest question is, does Capella have a good reputation in the higher education world of nursing? I don't want to end up in the same category as University of Phoenix, which I understand is, shall we say, considered subpar when it comes to nursing education. At this point I don't have any plans to continue on to a MSN or DNP, but I want to keep my options open. I would hate to put in the work for a BSN and then down the road, have somebody say that it doesn't carry much weight because of the school I chose. Maybe I'm reading too much into this - is it even that important for a BSN? As long as the program itself is CCNE accredited, that should be enough, right?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
