    The RN to BSN program at USU is legit. The program is accredited by CCNE according to their website:

    It's also completely online now! From their website:

    36 Credits / 2 Courses Every 8 Weeks / Completed in 12 Months
    Delivery Mode: 100% Online

    The RN to BSN program is designed for nurses to build leadership and management skills introduced in previous nursing programs, while expanding the art and science of nursing into the baccalaureate level. This program is grounded in a Caring Science model that teaches the theoretical and evidenced-based practice of nursing.

    Tuition Rate: $15,600 (including fees)
    Monthly Payment Plan: $325 per month for 48 months

    I got this info off of their page: RN to BSN - Bachelor of Science in Nursing - US University
