    That was the first course I took. If I remember right, there was no text book, just lectures to read. There's a question and answer forum where you can post a question about that just to be sure. You can also email the professor.

    Yeah I submitted on Q&A thread. Damn..so much paper work in the Soc 350 class.
    I wonder how College Algebra is as I am planning to take it the nest session.

    Yes, there are several papers due for Soc 350, but I enjoyed the class. I'm taking Algebra (math 092 and math 114) this semester. The courses are self paced, so you can complete the 2 courses in one 8 week semester or less.

    I also enjoyed that class. The big paper due at the end wasn't as bad as what I thought it was going to be. I actually enjoyed completing that paper. It is good that we have to complete certain steps first in order to write your paper instead of doing it at 1 time. Its a fun class!!

    Is the RN to BSN online program at Chamberlain accredited by all the major accreditors? LOL! I am looking into this program, but I want to make sure it will count EVERYWHERE! Thanks in advance!

    Hi lunaRN, I'm a new member and currently an EC student. i've read quite a number of your posts. Just out of curiosity, is there any advantage of doing the chamberlain RN-BSN as oppossed to the Excelsior ASN-BSN? The EC BSN degree is just a few classes away from the ASN it appears.

    There were advantages for me -- your experience may be different. EC wanted me to repeat some lower-level classes, and I had 3 Associates degrees and 206 college credits going in, so I didn't really want to take more classes just to fork over more cash. I also wanted a school that didn't have a big enrollment fee (I would have qualified for the returning student discounted enrollment fee that is $500-something), a big annual fee ($440), or a graduation fee ($495). I was also ready for something besides EC for the next couple of years! I was disappointed that the BSN advisors couldn't tell me if they'd give me credit for my statistics course until I paid the enrollment fee. Umm ... no. I guess I expected a little courtesy as a returning student, so I decided to take my education and $$$ elsewhere. Yes, Chamberlain is more expensive per credit hour, but because I have to do fewer credits with Chamberlain, it shakes out to a very similar number, bottom line. I'm very glad I made the choice I did -- I've already funded nearly half of my BSN through my employer's tuition reimbursement and a scholarship, so the money out of my pocket will be less than $10K. Not bad for a BSN!

    Thank so much for all the info. It just seems there are a lot of EC ASN students out there but very few BSNs. I wish you all the very best at Chamberlain.

    So far, I am enjoying the transitions class, interesting topics. In my VERY short nursing career, I did not realize I was learning so much! I feel like this class is bringing out all I have actually learned. How is class going for everyone else?

    I also set up my schedule for the next two semesters with academic advising. Should be done in June 2010, yeah!!!

    I am enjoying transitions, love the soc-cultural diversity class so far too, and the college algebra is moving along, I will have it completed by week 4 so far so good! I am certainly kept busy.

    Olivia,
    Yesss certainly I am enjoying the class and felt like I am learning a lot. So...I guess we are in the same class.
    I am planning to take Assessment and College Algebra.
    Any take on how difficult/easy those classes will be? I hope so....
