Accredited (CCNE) RN to BSN online under 1 year

by secondguesser secondguesser (New) New

I 'm graduating in a few months and will be looking to jump straight into an online RN to BSN program. I want the program to be accredited by the CCNE. I want whatever program to be a year or under. I know of Chamberlain and WGU, what are some of my other options?

What state are you from? Ohio University has an online RN to BSN that can be done in a year, but it is open to certain states only. The classes are only 5 weeks long!

Many nurses in my area have been able to complete the RN-to-BSN program offered by Texas Tech in nine to ten months. It is fully online and streamlined.

If you're in Michigan I went to Ferris State University for my RN-BSN. I was able to finish in 2 semesters (30 credits). It is accredited by ACEN. It was fully online, there was just one community aspect for a course but that can be done locally. I'm not sure how many credits you have to take if this is your first bachelors (might still be 30) or if you can do this program out of state. It was really flexible though and the advisor was awesome. Classes were fairly pointless, but I think thats the norm for any RN-BSN, lots of busy work, discussion boards, papers and group projects.
