    I'm thinking of this school to complete my MSN degree. I love the payment plan option, the cost, and the length if the classes. Just wish I could connect with someone who's finished the MSN program.

    Not sure if I understand your post, are you a BSN student now? You stated you're in your 4th semester, then wanting to enroll in a BSN program, which is it? I'm currently an MSN student, but chose to do my MSN at another school.

    WGU is a great program, I just prefer a different style, that includes a semester based format and a potential for a higher GPA.

    Would love some feedback on this program. I currently have a BSN, I started a MSN program but the cost of the program is the issue. How much would going from BSN-MSN cost? How long is the program???

    Try Jamaica Hospital in Queens and Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn. Both hospitals hire new grads! Happy hunting!

    I worked at Brookdale for several years, it's not a bad place to work and gain loads of experience. I think if you really need a place to work and really want to advance your career this place is a great start. The incident that happened with the nurse was very unfortunate and could have happened anywhere. The patient did not show any signs of mental issues before discharge and therefore the incident was unforeseen.

    Currently, I've moved on in my career and am vey pleased with the experience I gained working at Brookdale. Like other places they do have their shortcomings but I owe a great deal of gratitude to the organization.

    I haven't been able to find an online FB group. I would love to find one, at times I feel like I'm on my own.

    Did you have any problems finding a job after completing the RN/BSN program from Chamberlain??

    I have two new graduates from Chamberlain who work on my floor. They both said they had no problems getting jobs once they obtained their BSN's.

    I don't think it's worth the cost. It's far too expensive, and I don't think the support during the program is that great.

    I assume your question is related to the annoying limit NY places on online NP programs, blocking all but about two programs: Frontier and Samford. The answer is that if you live in NY you can still attend an online program as long as you do your clinicals in a different state, in this case PA. When you apply for NP licensure, you would have to apply and sit for the exam in PA, then transfer your license to NY. I spoke to an admission counselor for an online program and she explained this to me regarding NY students. I too live in NY and if I do an online program will have to go over to NJ for clinicals.

    Thanks so much for clearing this up, I'm new in my search for an online NP program. I'm a NY resident and have been looking for an online NP program. Are you already enrolled in a program? Online or B&M? Keep me posted!!!
