Hi everyone. I have been reading allnurses for a while now and have decided to start my bridge to RN/BSN. The thing is I am located in the mountains in Colorado and am not close to any big cities. After much research it appears I have to choose either Excelsior or ISU. I am in the process of completing my pre-req courses. After I spoke with Excelsior they stated that I will have to wait 12 months AFTER completing all the courses to do the CPNE and then I have to do 300+ hours for preceptorship before I can sit for my boards. After looking at that time line it looks like ISU might be quicker???? Any insight would be great. Thanks

WGU has a prelicensure to BSN program online.  It is accredited in all 50 states, unlike ISU and EC. 

The only downside is that their clinical sites are in a few select states, (Which you can travel to, to complete.)  But if you are willing to travel once a semester to complete the clinical hours, the rest is online.

The program has 10 prereq's but all can be completed online, (they actually give you the links to accredited bodies to complete said requirements.)

WGU gives you pass or fail results. I would say you should consider other universities if you are planning to continue further education.
