Ohio University or WGU for RN-BSN?

Has 11 years experience.

I'm stuck between these two online schools and looking for help in deciding on where to get my BSN. I'm going to get my CSN certificate once I obtain my BSN. If you've attended/are attending either of these schools, or know someone that has/is, please tell me some pros and cons. Thank you!

I attended WGU for both my BSN and my MSN. I highly recommend it, particularly if you're very self-motivated and disciplined. I've known people who have gone through the BSN program in only one term.

OU has a very good program. I say OU, although I am a bit biased since I graduated from OU.

Is WGU pass/fail grading. I have read on this forum that those "grades" are not acceptable for other grad school

Many people from WGU have gotten into a crna programs and FNP programs. It is considered a 3.0 not just a pass fail. It might be a little more difficult depending on entry requirements but it’s totally doable.

From my understanding WGU is not a pass/fail system any longer. I am attending the program for my BSN now. I like it a lot. Since it is self paced you have to be motivated but I work and am a mother to a 9 month old and have been able to complete things at a manageable rate. I also know people who have completed the program in a term (specifically a month!) but she was in between jobs and spend 10-12 hrs on school work a day.
