Hello. I am a flexpath RN-BSN graduate (June 30, 2017) it truly is an amazing program. !!! It is an accredited university so financial aide covers it and job prospects will acknowledge your degree. So what you do is you pay by the term rather than the course. Each term is $2500 and 12 weeks long. During that term you take as many classes as you can. Average is 3 but I took 4 first term, 6 the second term and only 2 the third term because I only had two courses left to finish the program. The most cost effective way to do flexpath is to do as many classes as you possibly can in each term. My BSN only cost me 7500. Which is nothing compared to some of those other programs.

Another perk- absolutely no discussion boards whatsoever. All you do is write papers. Each class has 4-6 papers to write. You have three chances to correct your paper for a final grade. You do all the research yourself and the way you learn is through research. The fastest I ever finished a class was literally in 6 days. There are some papers you can write because you know all of the criteria. Other papers you write you have to research the criteria and learn it before you can write the paper.

I have always been a competitive over-achiever. I made it my goal to finish the program in 12 months- I beat that! I completed the program in 7 months!!! I am currently taking a month off but will be enrolling in their MSN program for nursing education and hope to finish that by the middle of 2018 (and hope to make a record for myself with that too).

If I can be of any help please feel free to contact me. I truly am a testimony of a great program and can guide you on how to complete the program successfully as well.

This is awesome - congrats! I wanted to pick your brain to see how the MSN program is going? I'm considering Capella thanks to my employer's partnership w/ them and was just curious to get a firsthand experience on it...

Hi Amystockton420. I would really appreciate your assistance in answering a couple of questions. Can you please email me at mrobert08@yahoo.com. Thank you so much.

I know this is an old thread, but some posts i've read mention presentations. Did you have to to presentations or only papers? Thanks!

How long did BSN take you & did you work?

Still feel the same way? Updates?

My BSN with Capella via their FlexPath program took a few days over 6 months, and yes, I was (and still am) working full time.

Did you like the program?

Wow, did you ever start the MSN program? I am in the RN to BSN traditional path at Capella and am intrigued by the flex path option but was reluctant to commit to it because I wasn't sure if I could handle taking "as many classes as possible" while working full time as a nurse. I almost done with my first class for my first "semester" - the class is called "Developing a Nursing Perspective" It's been pretty easy - are all of the classes similar in intensity? (discussion questions due once a week, replies to peer discussion, and 3 actual papers) Thanks in advance!

Hi!

I am currently enrolled in BSN Flexpath program, I have 3.5 classes to go until graduation!

With Flexpath, textbooks are not mandatory. They give you all of the resources you need within the course. If I felt I could benefit from the textbook I have rented them from Amazon.

Tuition is a flat rate and you are billed in 12 weeks increments. You can complete as much or as little as you want in that 12 weeks... it's the same set price whether you take 1 class or 4 in that timeframe.

My employer actually has a contract with Capella where they offer a grant if you're an employee that enrolls. If it makes you feel better, I started in August just based on falling in love with Capella, and my employer didn't come in contact with Capella until January.

I am planning on going for my MSN through flexpath after I graduate with my BSN.

I also planned to go there but counsellor’s behavior was very arrogant. She was very negative in the whole process. When I asked her few questions she even asked me to choose another university. So bad!!

I'm only 2 courses in, but I have had to do a video presentation for one of my courses. Papers, a lot of research, video, and a powerpoint creation but not narrated presentation. Hope that helps.
