    Like others have said, the BSN can be done in a much shorter time. It seems that most people are able to finish in two terms (12 months). I finished my BSN in 3 terms/18 months, and it seems that I was one of the slower paced people. I took the minimum number of credits required each term (12), but definitely could have finished in 2 term if I had gone at a faster pace and had worked more steadily.

    Wow! That's awesome. Thanks for the encouragement! You sure you're just not an exceptional person or genious? What about the Pre-Nursing Curriculum/ the first six month period, that's supposedly the pre-admissions period?

    Thanks for letting me know. I would like to be on the 6 months -12 months BSN track like you and klone.

    GozXamaica,

    It depends on your pace. It took me six months to finish my BSN and 9 months for my MSN. It doable. You can do it! I work fulltime and did it and so can you. By the way, I am a mother of two too....single parent.

    I'm starting the IT program hopefully in March if my old school sends in my transcripts in time. I have several friends who want to get their BSN and I have been recommending WGU. I'm excited to start. It will be completely different from nursing but I would love to be able to get an IS job for the healthcare company I currently work for. I wish I would have known about WGU years ago. I would have gotten my BSN from there instead of sitting in a classroom trying to stay awake after working a night shift.

    I'm hoping to follow in your footsteps! I'm just about to submit my practicum and (fingers crossed) when it passes I'm officially done with the BSN in 6 months. Then onto my MSN in education! Would love to finish that in 9 months but a year is okay too.

    I had 4 prerequisite classes...nutrition, biochem, math and a research paper class. In the end, I will have completed 35 credits in 6 months. I had an extra BSN class because I transferred to the MSN track midterm.

    Congrats on your accomplishment goodstudentnowRN! Any tips?

    RN Mommy,

    Just remain focused. Don't wait on a task to come back to start another. Just keep going. You will be done before you know it.

    I currently am in the RN-MSN-Education Program. I finished my BSN and 5 of my MSN classes in 12 months. I had to take biochem and nutrition my first term and it wasn't that bad. I am now on track to finish my MSN August 31, 2013!! Which means 2 years total for my RN-MSN program which is much faster than I could have done it anywhere else. I also worked full time and can be a huge procrastinator so my mentor has a tough job to keep me on the straight and narrow finishing my tasks on time.

    No one ever seems to be in the RN-MSN Leadership/Mgmt track. What's up with that?

    Actually, we did a poll on our FB page, and it seemed the majority did the leadership track. I guess most of them just don't post here? I will be doing the Leadership track (I start in June, I wanted to take a few months off to catch my breath before diving back in).

    Hmm, yeah, I guess they're too good to post here with us scrubs.
