Hello!

I will be graduating from Clark College's ADN program this June. I would like to do a RN to BSN program and have gotten accepted to Washington state university- Vancouver and OHSU. Both are online programs.

I've been comparing the two:

WSUV- 30 credits total

OHSU- 36 credits plus an additional 15 credits in non-nursing with an upper division level at another college/ university.

OHSU would cost a bit more due to the additional 15 non-nursing credits and take a bit more time.

My goal in the future is to get accepted to either a Master's or DNP program after completing the BSN degree.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?

I start the online RN to BSN program at Linfield in the fall. I did a bit of researching for BSN programs and I have had a wonderful experience with the faculty whom I have communicated with thus far. They are so supportive and helpful! It's a bit pricey, but they offer lots of scholarship opportunities and welcome ANYONE into their program. Basically, they hold you as responsible for your own education and motivation... They do not try to sell you their program nor do you have to worry about any "competition" to get in. I am beyond excited! I hope that offered a little insight :)

That is awesome! I have a couple of friends who chose to do Linfield's RN to BSN program! I'm just having trouble deciding who to actually start their program with? Touch decisions!

I'm looking for feedback on anyone experience with RN to BSN or RN to MSN with a bachelor in non-healthcare field. Basically trying to determine if I should get started with a program (online) while in Florida or wait until I have moved this fall.

From my local research I can take 30 credits and get a BSN or take the same number of credits at the masters level plus 9 credits at the 4000 class (bachelor senior) level. The differences.... master level classes are a lot more than bachelors and I would have to be really sure of the masters level track I apply for. Seems to me the BSN would be close to doing nursing school all over again. But then again, until I decide on a MSN track some employers may shut me out for not having the nursing bachelors.
