Hi,

I just got accepted to their virtual college. I'm excited but just want to know from anyone who is currently there:

How are the courses?

Is Blackboard easy to navigate?

Are the professors helpful?

How easy is it to be admitted to the RN-BSN program once the required pre-reqs are completed?

Feel free to offer any other info that you think will be helpful. Thank you!

Hi! Welcome! I am. Currently enrolled in their RN-BSN courses. After completing my stats class this summer I will apply for the actual BSN program. So far so good. Bb is pretty easy to navigate... Iv been taking 3-4 courses a semester while working 2 jobs with 2 kiddos so I think it is manageable. Let me know if I can help with anything else.

I got my BSN through FHSU and loved it. Thought everything was very doable.

Hi ERnurse71, I also got accepted into the FHSU but I have to do statistics,patho I & II and the nursing prerequisites (Foundations and Transition) before I could apply for me it will be after Spring 2017. I am concern if I could handle the Statistics, Patho I and Foundations of Nursing (7 cr. hrs) for the coming fall semester. You said you have finished Statistics, how was your experience with that and how was your experience with Patho I? Is my plan doable (since I also work 3 12-hour noc shifts, although I don't have any kiddos to take care of)? I want to be able to take about 6-7 cr hours each semester and 5 in the summers. I have to take 32 cr hours to graduate. Can you give me some ideas on how the Statistics class flow--I not that good in Math so I am a little intimidated taking it online (any input will be highly appreciated).

Hi Laurab14,

How many units did you take each semester and were you a working nurse when you were pursuing your BSN at FHSU? Are you planning to get your MSN? If so, are you going to FHSU again for your masters?

I know this is an old post but how did your experience go at FHSU? I want to do there RN-BSN after I graduate and they seem super flexible. I'm out of state

Hello! I really don't have any complaints for FHSU. The statistics was very challenging so I opted to take it at a local community college with a in classroom approach. Otherwise the criteria for the BSN program was very manageable. I was able to maintain this while working 2 jobs and maintaining family life. It wasn't easy but I did it. Please let me know if you have any more questions I'd be more than happy to help. I live out of state as well and found the cost considerably cheaper than local programs. I completed my BSN in May 2017 so their curriculum may have changed. Best of luck!
