Easy RN to BSN ?

  1. I'm sure we all have a story.
    But for me, at this point of my life (I work Home health), I honestly don't think that the course work for the BSN will make me a better home health nurse (OASSIS documentation).
    Just looking for the piece of paper that future employers might want.

    Is there an EASIER RN to BSN online program out there ?

    Easier than what? I don't think I've ever heard of a hard online BSN program, but I don't have a BSN, so ...
    From what I can gather, they all involve quite a bit of jumping through hoops. I'm not sure I feel like doing it either.
    If you find a place that will let you "buy" the piece of paper after successfully counting to 100 and/or tying your shoes, please let me know.

    I think it's a matter of finding a 'buy online degree school'
    ;-)

    The proliferation of online, or mostly online, programs, in and of itself, is easier than the traditional BSN programs of the past. One had to actually get ready and get themselves to a classroom for those programs. The more stringent the attendance policy of the school, the 'harder' the program, just based on inconvenience alone.

    I have a friend at work that said it best. He said "can't we just write them a check and have them mail us the piece of paper". The BSN did not make me a better nurse. It was a silly waste of time with a bunch of group projects and presentations akin to finger-painting in preschool. However, it got me promoted and allowed me to pursue my DNP. I participated in a state-school on-line program because it was cheap & my employer would pay for it. I'd recommend doing the same.
