    Glad I helped! I think it's the right decision too. As for being nervous about writing, don't be! It's a lot of writing but most of the assignments have reasonable page number or word count requirements. Also many of the professors post example papers for some of the assignments which is really useful (including one of my papers!). As for any tips for the assignments, I actually have a few! First and foremost, each assignment you do will have a grading rubric which shows how points are distributed for that assignment. FOLLOW THE GRADING RUBRIC. That's the most important tip. Build your paper around the grading rubric. Another thing I found useful was that Microsoft Word has a tool built into it that allows you to input all of your citations and it spits out a perfectly formatted references page. There are Youtube videos on how to use it. Also in terms of keeping track of assignments, I used Google Calendar. At the start of each new class every 8 weeks I would find the schedule and input all of the assignments ahead of time into Google Calendar. Another thing I found useful was that I got a second monitor for my computer, so I could have my assignments up on one monitor, and my sources up on the other monitor. There will be some classes early on about how to format your papers in Microsoft Word, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to get as familiar as possible with Microsoft Office and Powerpoint. For Office, learning how to add headers and page numbers is a good idea. Also learn about different level headings from the APA website here. Not sure if I'm going to get my MSN. I'm really enjoying not being in school for the first time ever. However, Highlands is working on an MSN program so we'll see if that's something that pans out in the future. Good luck!

    Anybody have any experience dealing with New Mexico Highland University's online RN-BSN program? Would you recommend it?
