    Bumping discussion in the hopes someone who is in the University of Louisiana - Lafayette RN to BSN program can give me some information on what they think of the program? How are the courses? How much writing/time do you devote each week? At the end of the program, do you know if there is a huge project to do? Does it require a preceptor, etc???

    Any and all information is greatly appreciated!
    These are good questions, if anyone has feedback on the course styles and assignment expectations. Thanks again!

    Also interested in this program - it's either this or WGU, based on finances. Would love to hear from more people that have done it!

    FeatherzRN- I put in my application this week for Aug start date. I still don't know hiw they run the courses- I did hear that there are no clinical s to arrange, no preceptorship, and no group projects. I'm interested in discussion boards and "some" papers- not 5 page papers every week. So after they review my transcripts I hope to hear from someone directly with the program. Ill report back!

    I'm also looking for anyone who has been or is in the program. I've done a lot of research, like I'm sure everyone else here has, and am very interested in this program. It seems like a fast program, a good price and I like that they offer chemistry online during the program. It's the only class I need and it seems every other program I've look at that I liked I was going have to wait almost a year just to start a BSN program so I could get chem out of the way. I have already applied to ULL, but not yet 100% committed to the program so any feedback right now would be great!

    I ended up going with WGU (which also lets you take chemistry with them if you need to). So far so good! Wanted to try these guys but could not find enough information from people who were actually in the program to help with decision.

    I looked at WGU, but I think I want to stay with a more traditional style degree. (Can we call online degrees traditional? Love technology!) From what I can tell, ULL started their online program last year, but have been offering nursing at their campus for years. They are also partnered with Academic Partnerships who work with a number of high ranking online nursing schools, so that gives me some belief hat the program won't be too unorganized as it is still taking off. And while they may be new and haven't had many people reviewing heir program at least that means nobody is so distraught with it that they're already complaining! I went ahead and applied, so if I get accepted I'll be sure to post so others looking for information can get a little information.

    After a lot of consideration I've decided to go ahead and go with ULL for my BSN. I'm starting in July and really looking forward to it! I'll be sure to come back and post my thoughts on the program as I go through it. Good luck to everyone who is looking for their own right program!

    Hi, I finally heard yesterday. I got into the March 2013 class.

    You started in March? How is it going so far? Are the classes GPA or auto 3.0 like WGU? any advice would be appreciated. I applied for August 26 start but not 100% committed yet! Thanks.

    We will have to keep in touch if both officially start in August. I think the biggest thing for me is the lack of reviews from previous students it makes it hard to know for sure if the program is as good as it looks

    Yup, I saw StephaniieRN3 also is to start in August. I found out last night I'm in for Aug. too but I haven't talked to an Admissions or Program person yet re: course transfers. I'm taking Stats now at my local community college. I think that's all I need extra.

    I'd like to have a study- buddy group going so lets stay in touch everyone!
