I'm just looking for any information that current or former students can infer on the following schools for RN-BSN: UTEP, WGU, Texas Tech, UTA, Lamar, Ohio, Thomas Edison. I guess by information, I'm looking to find out experiences, any confusion, how were exams taken, lots of papers?
Those were some of the schools I am interested in and have narrowed it down to. I can patch some info together from what I gathered. Noticed most of them are from TX...hmmm..
UTEP: $5235 for 6 months? Their brochure didn't say but if this is the case, they seem to be copying WGU's formula. RN-only courses for 20 credits, but school requires 30 resident units so you must take 10 elective credits, which is not included in the $5235. Price does not include books. No mention of clinical. Requires health clearance documents.
WGU: $3745 total tuition and fees for 6 month term, self-paced. Books included. Exams are proctored or at test center. Has practicum "experience" project but no clinical. 3.0 GPA is all u get. (leaning on this one)
Lamar: Just like UTA's Academic Partnership thing, but seems to be cheaper @ $7500. Has 8 Week classes. Not as many start dates. Not sure if books included. Requires TX Government Class. Nothing mentioned on allnurses.
Texas Tech: Read someone finished in 6 months on allnurses. Can send unofficial transcripts in advance. Only 3 admissions year round. $7562 not including books for in-state. Not sure about out of state.
UTA: $9K. Slow as hell in processing transcripts. Includes books.
Ohio: 5-week classes. >$10K
West A&M: Special Tution Rebate of $7k, practicum experiences, can only apply when you got license within 3 months of graduating school.
