BSN online, or at university??

Posted

Hi, I am wondering about any experiences on obtaining my BSN. I am in the last semester of an ADN nursing program. I would like to continue on for my BSN ASAP. I have had mixed feedback about schools for my BSN. Some people feel that it is better to go to a "Brick and Mortar" university....than to go through something like Western Governors.....because of the accreditation?? Do employers like to see a university on a resume?? Thanks any input is appreciated!

What she said. ^^^ WGU is in no way comparable to the University of Phoenix or the now-defunct Corinthian Colleges. My nurse manager got her MSN from WGU, and some of my colleagues have done the RN-BSN program and loved it. I probably would have done it myself, but started my program before I really knew about it.
