Hi everyone, I just recently started my RN to BSN-MSN at Walden University. I am in my second quarter of classes but I am not sure if this is the right school for me. My learning style is more auditory/visual. But this program is not working for the way that I learn. I have a disability, so I have a hard time concentrating on reading long passages without have something to listen to and keep my attention. There are no seminars or online lectures in the program. We just read articles and post to the discussion boards.
They just assign multiple chapters to read but the assignments and resources do not align to what we have read. There are no powerpoint slides or anything that I can use to follow along while basically teaching myself. There is no way to interact in the courses besides the discussion boards. In my health assessment class we have a program called Shadow health and it is great. I am able to talk to the program and see what I am learning.
My question is does anyone have any online RN-MSN-NP programs that have more interaction? With seminars or lectures/ powerpoints? My fear is that I will become bored with the program and not retain the information that I need to learn.
I was so excited to start this journey but I fear that I have chosen the wrong school for me. I live in Atlanta, GA.
I originally wanted to attend University of South Alabama or University of Alabama in Birmingham both online.. but I tend to get bored and lose my motivation after being in the same course for 16 weeks. I would like a program that has shorter weeks, online, with more interaction. Please help.
