Hey everyone, I am currently an AAS RN and am eager to advance my degree. I have been a labor/delivery since I became a nurse 4 years ago. I recently became a school nurse because my family needed a consistent schedule, but still work PRN at the hospital. I am looking for a school that is, most importantly, inexpensive since I will be paying out of pocket. My two top choices are Western Governors University and Aspen University. They are both financially feasible and it looks like they will both provide my educational goals. I'm leaning towards WGU because I can move through the program quickly and it's quite inexpensive. My only hesitation is that if I go for the RN to MSN, I would not be awarded a BSN. And, it's a pass/fail system with a GPA a 3.0. My ultimate goal is to be a FNP and CNM. My concern is being able to get into an accredited school with only a 3.0 GPA after getting my BSN/MSN. I was also wondering, if going through WGU, if getting my BSN first and then getting my MSN would be the way to go so I have the BSN in my hands in case life happens and I am unable to complete the RN to MSN in a timely fashion. I would love your thoughts about my plan and how I am thinking about fulfilling it.
