    I just started my classes this past November. I'm working on all the extra classes such as diversity, statistics, ethics etc. When I'm done with those classes I' ll finally be ready to start my nursing classes until early 2017. Thanks for the great pointers ladies.

    Thanks for the info, xobritney! Glad to hear they are interesting. I already took stats previously and have a BA/MS so I should be going right into the nursing courses. Trying to figure out if two at a time would be too much. Should I expect 1 paper/test per week per course? Will the advisor suggest which two courses to take simultaeously? Enjoy your week off!!
    The advisors definitely help you choose what classes are best to take together. I was able to start the nursing classes very fast too because I did a lot of prerequisites. Two classes is definitely doable. In the classes there is usually a final paper/PowerPoint. In the nursing classes specifically they have you do "milestone assignments" so the final paper is easier because you work on it little by little throughout the course. I work full time nights and go to school full time and it's definitely doable! Good luck!

    Thanks for the info. I am in my fourth term at snhu. I am taking diversity right now. I am starting the first nursing course in April. I am taking one class at a time because I figured the course load will get heavier. Good luck with the rest of your classes...

    I'm grateful to see your posts, I just applied to SNHU and am curious about their program. Are any of you planning to go on to an MSN program after your BSN?

    Hi,

    I do not plan on going for my MSN. I think I am content with stopping at the BSN level. I think if I had wanted to continue on as an APRN, then I would get my MSN through SNHU. It is a great school and I am happy to be there. I am currently in the nursing classes and it is tough and a lot of work but it is doable if you work hard and stay organized. Good luck!

    It depends on the class. Some have short papers most weeks, along with journal entries and discussion posts. Two at a time is definitely not too much if you work 3-4 days a week and can commit to school work on your days off. My advisor recommended that I start with one class (which I did) then I have done two every semester. As of now I have 4 courses left. Good luck!

    Hi, I am in the first nursing course now at SNHU. are there certain classes you would recommend to pair together during the course of the nursing program there? I am nervous to double up as I know we require a 80% to pass and I am nervous to take on too much. what has been the easier of the courses so far and what has been the most difficult?
    Thank you for your time,

    IDS 400 is that Diversity? That was a pretty good class. I just took it last term and got a 95. It is a lot of work, but I had a great teacher. Her last name was Carroll. She was great... She graded things on time, and was a fair grader. Good luck with the course.

    So far I have taken statistics with the first nursing class and nursing 305 and 315 together. All of these classes were doable together. I am currently taking health assessment and diversity together, it is a lot of work. I wouldn't recommend taking these two together. I am taking the June-August semester off (transitioning into a new position and can't do school right now, need a break!). Good luck!

    Hi guys,

    Thank you all for your inputs at SNHU. I am starting my first class next month, preferably, Statistics. I need 36 credits towards my BSN.
    # xobritney24- How was the statistic class? How is it taking 2 classes at the same?

    Hi, curious about this program. Can you apply in your last semester of nursing school and can you transfer prior bachelor classes ove
  13. by   kummerspeck
    I currently attend SNHU and you can transfer previous bachelor's classes over. I did that and only have to take 12 classes to get my BSN. You can apply for the school before you get your associate's, their advisors are really good at explaining all the requirements.
    Someone above mentioned aggressive advisors, and I kind of agree here, they call a LOT, but I email my advisor when I have questions and that seems to settle things down. I get maybe one call to see how I am feeling once a term now.
    I have taken 5 classes so far and will be done by June 2017. The format for the classes are all pretty much the same, which is nice, because you know what your terms are gonna look like each time. I have enjoyed the courses I've taken and am happy I chose them.
