I am thinking Western Governors University. Being that they let you complete courses as fast as you can, and have 6 month enrollment terms. I think the key would be having as many general eds as possible going in. I will be looking into them more next week. I would love to have my BSN done in 6-9 months. I have been told that they do a lot of papers, but I think if you can really block out your schedule, it can be done.

I am doing a local state supported college for RN-BSN. I started in July 10 and will finish May 11. It takes 3 semesters.

My understanding about Western Governor's is the top GPA you can earn is a 3.0 due to their competency based learning. Please someone, correct me if I'm wrong. I opted not to attend there for that reason. I want to leave the door open for grad school and a 3.0 won't cut it in many institutions. Good luck...I'm trying to accomplish the same goal.

did you have all of your general eds done, prior. i was looking at texas tech because i saw you were there, but it seemed like it would be longer for me because i may need more general eds. thanks in advance.
