Completing BSN in time

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with nudging up against a deadline for completing your BSN within a timeframe given by an employer? I had tried to complete my degree a couple of years ago through a traditional college but due to some health issues was unable to complete it. I am now a month and a half away from my five year deadline and have two self-paced classes left. I am pretty sure I will be done but wanted to hear from people who have had similar experiences. All HR has told me so far is that I could be let go.

People were terminated where I worked. There was a deadline to be in a program and a deadline to have it completed. There were some who thought they could game the system and start a program then drop out. They were caught.

I am definitely not trying to game the system! I wouldn't jeopardize my career like that! Thanks for your feedback.

It wasn't just the gamers that were let go. It was everyone who didn't complete the requirement.

My employer has made some exceptions if people show that they have been making steady progress -- and not just dragging their feet or trying to game the system.   People who have been sincerely trying, but who had some legitimate obstacles to overcome … have been given a little extra time if the circumstances were right.
