RN-BSN completion??

  1. 0 I'm looking at going to University of WYoming for the Rn completions program. Its totally online, and it doesn't look like there's a huge amount of classes to take. Anyone here done it? Any thoughts????

    HI SNowy!!
    I graduated from UW but not through the completion program. I do know many people that have who have positive things to say. I think the best thing is that it is "better" because you have more respect from the instructors because you are all ready an RN.
    You can mail me if you want to know any contacts or need any answers to questions. I do know many of the instructors as well.
    YEAHHHH another future alum!

    Hi there!! I did complete my BSN through UW last year. With the exception of a few elective credits it was completely online and I loved it. (Some of the electives you can also finish online). There is one clinical class that I did through the Public Health Department here. There is a lot of writing involved in the online classes, several big papers and a couple projects, but it was all very managable. I can hardly say enough good things about the experience. Hope you have as much luck with it as I did. If you have any questions that I might help with, please let me know. Good luck!!!

    Thanks for the input on UW! i figured it would be a lot of writing, etc...but i think the trade off of NOT having to drive to class is worth it! lol But we'll see, it would be next fall before i even being to try. I have 3 classes i need to complete for pre-req's, and i'm not sure if i can start it until i'm thru with those or not. But i'm all over the online deal!!!:roll

    SnowymtnRN, directed over to this thread, THANKS. I am glad too, nice to hear from someone who has done it. THANKS for your comments JennyJ and WhyO. I had narrowed it down to 2 totally on-line schools and WY is really beginning to seem like the best choice!

    I am about to cry. I too got the packet and that awesome e-mail not too long ago. I too was excited and ready to get moving. However, today they are telling me that they don't accept my nursing school. My nursing school is NLNAC accrediated and actually won praise. Well, they said is is not REGIONALLY (whatever that means) accrediated. However, somehow my small community college they accept. I have worked so hard looking at school for so long. I finally found one that I really want to go to and feel comfortable about. I guess it is back to the drawing board. Be careful and check this information. Between transcript being sent and the evaluation fee, I have lost a little over $40 to be told this. I am so upset but wanted to warn you so this doesn't happen to you. Good Luck. Back to research I guess.

    Regionally accredited means the whole college is accredited by the agency that covers that part of the country. For instance in my part of the country it is Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Did you go to a diploma school for nursing and also the community college in addition? Most diploma nursing schools are not regionally accredited but NLN accredited. You might want to call for an explanation.

    Hmmm. So i graduated in Colorado, but now live in WY. I guess that would be the same region? i'm going to try to call today to see if it will be a problem or anything, but i'm trying to figure this out. It was a regular ADN program, not diploma.

    Thanks New Castle Ken!

    Snowy--I just don't understand what they are talking about??? Now Maureen Lutterman calls me and tells me there is no problem as long as I have a valid RN license. Why all the letters and e-mail from admissions???? I don't know but just glad I can still go. I will probably start taking some of the introductory courses in the summer. I need to finish up statistics and then all prereq's are done!! She was very nice and made me feel at ease. I have been crazy with life and it pushed me over the edge, lol. I had a family memeber die yesterday, another family memeber had car accident 2 days ago, i found out today I have gallstones and need a cholecystectomy next week. My nerves are shot!!!!!!!! Well, It couldn't hurt to check. I would talk to Maureen, she is great. When are you starting? Good Luck and keep in touch!!!!!!!!!! It sounds like such a great school, I am so excited!

    So how's it going? I just got my partial transcript evaluation. The only thing i noticed is they want me to take WY government, and i've taken 2 other governments but those transcripts aren't there yet. So i'm HOPING i won't have to take another stupid government. lol BUt otherwise i only need like 4 classes pre-req wise. So that's better than what i thought it would be. How are the classes going for you??
