When obtaining my RN degree I decided to go to an ADN-RN program instead of a BSN program. Obviously, as most of all of us have heard, a lot of states are transferring over to a predominately BSN nurse population and I'd like to keep up with those competitive standards.
With that being said, is there anyone on here who has attended Nevada State College in Las Vegas to obtain their RN-BSN. I really want to use this school because classes are 8 weeks and it is all online. Not to mention, it is also local so I can actually be present at the graduation.
For anyone who has done their RN to BSN, was it difficult? I hear its A LOT of writing and gosh I am so over writing care plans
and other papers.
I am giving myself only until the end of summer and then I'm jumping right back into school.
Also, if you have done the RN to BSN program online was it doable to do full time if you're a full time nurse or should I start part time??'
Opinions needed, thanks a bunch!!
I completed my RN-BSN program in 2015. I started at WGU 20 years after I obtained my Associate Degree. It took me 18 months, however, I could have finished a lot sooner. We moved from Indiana to Florida while I was in school, that slowed me down a bit!
What sold me on WGU was 1. WGU is affordable 2. It was a competency-based program and 3. The ability to complete the program on your own timeframe.
WGU's terms are in six-month increments and run ~3,000 per term, and there are no books to buy! They are all electronically accessed and are included in your tuition.
The Competency-based paradigm allows you to accelerate in subjects that you are already proficient in. This means that you can complete as many courses that you want in that timeframe.
Two years after I completed my BSN, I went back to WGU for my Masters. I completed the program in 12 months.
If you have any questions about WGU, feel free to contact me.
Best of luck to you as you begin this new phase on your nursing journey! ~Lisa
