    Capella RN-BSN Flexpath-My experience

    Math and Science credit are grouped together, so as long as you have enough Science credit you'll be fine. They will let you know what counts towards credit.

    Capella RN-BSN Flexpath-My experience

    Yes, I did Flex-path. Each paper is given a grade, the highest grade (distinguished) is an A. I got all A's and ended up with a 4.0 GPA.

    Jehovah's Witness and Blood Refusal in OR

    1. Everything Jehovah's Witnesses believe is based on the bible. And yes, the Bible says, "abstain from blood" Acts 15:20, so they do not take blood transfusions. Members are not automatically disfellowshipped, disfellowshipping is done when members unrepentantly make a practice of breaking the Bible's commands. 2. Definition of Cult-a small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as sinister. Disfellowshipping is based on Bible principles 1 Cor 5:13, and there are over 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses. 3. Members are not left homeless. My father-in-law was disfellowshipped and needed care and my sister-in-law took him in. When someone is disfellowshipped members of the congregation do not SOCIALIZE with them, this is in accord with the Bible's teachings, this doesn't mean they don't take care of family members who can not take care of themselves. 4. If a patient decides to receive blood, that is their decision, and as a nurse, we need to be the patient's advocate.

    Novasyte?

    I also have an interview tomorrow. I looked at Glassdoor and a few questions mentioned there was: How do you handle conflict? What teaching background do you have? How do you overcome resistance to change?

    Capella flex path

    Yes, there are instructions for exactly what content they want covered in the paper. Then after you submit your first paper the instructor grades it and tells you if you need to improve in content, APA or grammer. My papers usually had APA errors not content issues, since they list exactly what they want you to cover.

    They will still receive the help and care they need from family members even if they are disfellowshipped. As nurses it is our ethicial duty to be the patient's advocate.

    Actually, it took me 48 weeks to do 12 courses, not 11, I had to take Bio Ethics also.

    And through 2017 the education tax credit is good for a first four year degree!

    Capella RN-BSN Flexpath-My experience

    Yes, I would do this program again. I liked the format much better than Excelsior. It cost me $10,000 total. It took me 48 weeks, four terms of 12 weeks, each 12 weeks is $2500. I averaged one course every 4 weeks. No extra costs involved.

    I haven't seen a lot of bad reviews for Capella?? I do remember seeing some low reviews for their PHD programs, but not for Nursing. I thought it was a great, quick program for BSN, I finished in 11 months. The Flexpath just started a year and a half ago, which is very different from the traditional BSN. I also did not want to repeat A&P and Micro.
  13. Not sure about anyone else, but I don't think stats helps me at all as a nurse! But anyway, Capella RN-BSN Flexpath does not require Stats, Chemistry or foreign language. I took Stats with Excelsior before doing the Capella program, it wasn't too terrible with them, but then I didn't need it anyway! Oh well.
  14. My instructors returned papers within 2 business days for the most part, I'm not sure if they will take more time on the MSN papers, but I doubt it. It didn't affect my timeline because I would just start working on the next paper until I got my reviewed one back. If it's at the end of a course, just have your coach register you for the next course and start on that while you wait for your final grade. I would register for my next course after starting the last paper for a course. As far as how fast, I've only done the BSN, so not sure how fast the MSN will be. I did 11 courses in 11 months in the BSN.
  15. Try "Ref Works" for APA bibliography, I loved it! I received a 4.0 with Capella's Flexpath. You have three opportunities to improve your paper's grade. I usually had some APA issues, not content issues. They tell you exactly what they are looking for in content.
