    Best online RN to BSN program....CHEAP?

    There's been a couple of students (in the WGU discussion boards) who've said they've finished WGU's RN-to-BSN program in 3 months. WGU students pay a set tuition rate ($3,250) per term (composed of 6 months) no matter how many competency units they take. If students finish in 3 months, then they pay the $3,250. I don't know another university that compares. I guess this depends on how motivated you are to finish the competency units. The competency units are pass/fail, and students earn a 3.0 GPA when they graduate.

    American Sentinel University it is!

    Thank you all for bringing this school to the forefront! After reading your posts, I'm seriously considering it now!
  5. Thanks, Robynheart716 There's some info from these posts about that program: https://allnurses.com/distance-learning-nursing/lowdown-wgus-online-524424.html https://allnurses.com/distance-learning-nursing/wgu-online-programs-254937-page2.html#post4770877 Are the mentors encouraging towards students to finish competency units during the 6-month time frame? Can we choose our mentors? (I would assume if students pay $3,250 for 6 months, we could choose our mentors.)

    Question about OU MSN

    Information about OU's MSN programs can be found here: http://www.nursing.ouhsc.edu/Academic_Programs/Graduate/nurse_practitioner_apply.htm OU's College of Nursing had an information session in December 2009. You can view the session to get more information about the admissions process, etc. http://tvs-media-ex.ouhsc.edu/mediasite/Viewer/?peid=fed7f3f90b8e4dab8e678121865347a9
  8. Hi Everyone! Anyone familiar with the MSN online program at National American University? http://www.national.edu/Programs/graduate/Pages/msn.aspx According to the website, the MSN's emphasis is in nursing education. The curriculum lists 9 courses, and 2 capstone related courses, for a total of 11 courses for the entire program. The final 2 courses are: the Nursing Capstone Project, and the Nursing Capstone Practicum: Simulation or Online. Any thoughts about this MSN program would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Tkrn714, Is a preceptor required for any of the competency-based units? Are practicum hours required for any of the units? Has anyone graduated from WGU's MSN program yet?

    WGU online programs

    Hi Meg Thanks so much for your response! Communicating with a graduate student does help in deciding whether to continue graduate education and which school to choose. What caught your attention about WGU?

    Hi Meg Are there practicum hours for the program? What is required for the final project (such as facility agreement, preceptor, and mentor approval)?

    In searching for information about WGU's MSN program, I came across a more detailed thread about WGU in the "Distance Learning for Nursing" forum under the thread entitled, "WGU online programs." You can find more about the school here: https://allnurses.com/distance-learning-nursing/wgu-online-programs-254937.html

    Hi Meg, Is there a main person to talk to about specific MSN program completion questions (such as clinical hours, etc.)? Has anyone finished the entire MSN program at WGU yet?
