There was a thread a while ago but I can't find it now.

I know some people recommended Winston Salem State,

any other thoughts on good online (and not too difficult)

Programs?

Thanks!

I know that UNC Charlotte has an online program, but I don't know much about it.

I've said this elsewhere on this site, but I'll repeat it: I had a great experience with WCU's RN to BSN program. Classwork is essentially all online, except for one day at the beginning and one day at the end of each semester. Clinical hours must be completed in person but can be arranged near where you live, so you don't necessarily have to live in the western part of the state.

I plan to do the RN to BSN at WCU, right now I am just trying to get into the Nursing program at AB tech. Thanks for sharing that you had a great experience!

So, I looked over their website. It says their program can be completed on a part-time basis over 2 years, I'm assuming you can do it full-time and complete it in 1 year? I've waited so long to do this that I just want to get it over and done with, kwim?

RN is your license type not degree type.

An ADN is an RN, a BSN is an RN.

You don't go from RN to BSN. You can go to LPN or ADN (RN) to BSN.

This is the 2nd or 3rd time I've seen this title or comment in as few minutes, I'm surprised no one else noticed the discrepancy.

(A lot of people refer to BSN completion programs as "RN to BSN" or "RN-BSN" programs because the programs require you to be a licensed RN in order to apply, and, since both ADN and diploma graduates apply to these programs, using the more general, generic term ("RN" instead of specifying "ADN") includes both groups. It doesn't mean people don't recognize the difference between a degree and a license ...)

Yup, it's sort of inaccurately named, but it's what they call their program.

It's not just there - all the programs around here in NY and most places I've looked call it the same thing, they say it's the RN to BSN "bridge" program so RN to BSN for short.
