Online BSN Schools

Posted

What are your opinions ? Anyone here attending online BSN/MSN programs? I currently hold an ADN as an RN. I was thinking of applying to Chamberlain college since they have a BSN-MSN program. Any opinions ?

Many other options are Hunter College, SUNY empire and SUNY canton.

But. Was really hoping to do it online so I can work. Is online a good idea or is it not worth it? Would hospitals look at it the same way as if I were Togo to an "on site" program?

When considering an online program look for accreditation; CCNE, NLN, etc. Employers care about the school's accreditation, not if it is brick and mortar, or online. I completed my MSN online and am very happy to say I am currently working in my specialty of education in an online RN to BSN program.

Online programs offer flexibility to those of us who work full time, but may be very intense. Courses can be 5 to 8 weeks with the same content of 12 to 15 week courses. I'd be happy to offer more input. Let me know.

Hello,

We moved your thread to the Online Nursing Schools and Colleges forum.

Good luck.

I would check out western govenors. I went there. It was all online. No one has disrespected it for being online. And it's WAY WAY cheaper than chamberlain.

Do you have any particular recommendations ? So many choices. Chamberlain is accredited by CCNE BUT... I also know that they are for profit and I heard employers don't look at them the same way. is that true ? I like the idea of doing a dual BSN-MSN program and be able to work full time to since bills still have to be paid :/

Ah I will check that out for sure ! I was looking at American Public University, Bellevue university l, hunter college (on site) and SUNY Delhi.

American Public U is another for-profit school.

Western govenors is also ccne accredited and has the dual program you're looking for. Good luck!!!!
