Does anyone think getting a BSN from an online school is a good idea? If so, what schools has anyone heard is a good one?

I agree with Tazzi- if you already have your ADN it might work, but if you have no nursing degree, there is no way anyone can safely learn how to be a nurse totally on-line.

I don't think there are any totally online BSN programs left other than RN-to-BSN programs.

My plan was to graduate in May of '08 with an associates degree for Nursing and as I'm doing the BSN online, I could have a baby. When I graduate, we will be married for 9 yrs, and if I don't do something soon, my husband is gonna leave me-J/K Seriously, I don't want to wait anymore. I just think it will be easier for me. Is it that bad?

So you are saying that you DO currently plan on earning your ADN in a regular college setting, and then going online to get your BSN? That's what you are planning to do? Cool... well you should be able to do that then. :) I don't know what other advice to give you though. I don't know what schools are good. University of Phoenix seems to have a decent reputation.

I was an ADN RN who then went to University of Phoenix for both my BSN and MSN. Quick and simple, but lots of work...I went to school for 2.5 years with them to go from ADN to MSN. Then...I went back to a local school for a post-MSN CNS.

It was well worth it even though I'll be working until I'm 70 to pay off the student loans - lol.

TraumaRUS, good for you!!! That's awsome. Is it a lot of writing papers? In order to get my BSN at a regular brick and Mortar school, I need to take all these chemistry classes, did you have to do that also? If you don't mind me asking, ball park figure, how much was it to get those degrees?
