RN to BSN school suggestions

  1. Hey y'all. I'm looking for an online RN to BSN program on the cheap side that only requires the following prereqisites... A&P1 and 2 and labs, Micro & lab, Psych, English 1 and 2, Stats...

    In short, not nutrition, chemistry, or sociology.

    I would greatly appreciate any help!!

    I'll tell ya... I took chem because it was a prereq for ONE of the programs I wanted to apply to.
    I hated the class. At the end of the semester, I was very happy with myself that I have never made a decision to be a chemist. But I still took it seriously and actually did quite well in the class.

    And as much as I disliked that class, I am 100% happy I took it and if I had to make the decision again, I absolutely would take chem - the concepts you cover in a basic chem class make stuff you thought you understood in A&P and micro crystal clear.

    I am so glad I took chemistry - and I know it will be immeasurably valuable as I get into pharmacology and pathophysiology.

    Take it. It might suck for a semester, but you will be SO glad you took it.

    I have AP credit for chem, but I think it is probably too old to count, so I'd have to take something again that I already pretty well know. The other classes I don't feel will really help me if I already have an ASN.

    I think WGU is probably the least expensive option for motivated students, if you don't mind the max 3.0 GPA based on their grading model.

    Those three classes are usually required for all BSN programs.

    I took nutrition and sociology in the ADN program. Took high school chemistry. I'm currently enrolled in the online RN-BSN program at The University of Alabama and had to take intro to Biology for non-biology majors OR chemistry. I took the intro to Bio at the local community college. Check out UA's program. Also here that Univ. of West FL has a nice program (cheap too). Don't know about the pre-reqs though. Good Luck and Roll Tide.
