1. Hey guys! I was just wondering if you have to be a working RN to go to an RN-BSN program? Can you go for RN-BSN without any experience?

    That depends upon the school. Some require it. Some don't.

    Sure you can.

    A BSN is simply a college degree and degrees don't require professional experience.

    I know that UOP requires one year of experience. I am just signing up for Chamberlain I don't know what the cost out of pocket will be...little scary!!

    at my traditional school you can start your BSN classes before you graduate from the ADN program. Any additioanl pre req's and a few of the extra classes needed then when you graduate you can start the nursing classes right away!

    Good to hear. I was considering UOP but I guess I will focus my efforts elsewhere.
