Posted

Has 6 years experience.

Hi everyone! I was just wondering if any of you have heard of/done Southern New Hampshire University's online RN-BSN program? I start July 13th, I'll be working 36 hours a week as a new grad RN at the same time. How did/do you like their program? Everyone has been friendly so far and the program is affordable. Thank you!

Cool, its nice to knowsomeone else is starting the same time as me... Im nervous about taking a nursing course first. I hear its alot of writing. We better be familiar with APA writing... i am going to take one class at a time for now. I have five gen ed classes to take along with the ten core nursing classes.

Yes I heard it is a lot of writing! That's good you transferred in a lot of classes. I have to take the 10 nursing classes and 3 general education classes. I think you will be okay starting out with the nursing class, for sure. Good luck! Everyone at the school seems helpful so far and I've heard good things about the school from students that go there.

How was the enrollment process? I considered SNHU for a while, but their very aggressive recruiter turned me off. I may consider them again.

Not a hat person,

Enrollment for me was easy. It took about three weeks and the admission counselor was very helpful. They seemed flexible with start dates and each class is 9 weeks in length.

You should try it again when you are ready..

Hi! That is exciting! Maybe we will be in some of the same classes :) I am taking stats in September, along with the first nursing class!

I had a nurse at one of the hospitals I worked at tell me stats at SNHU isn't bad, she said she isn't a math person either. We will both be taking stats in September though so I hope she is right!

I'm sorry to hear that! They were excellent with me. I didn't feel rushed or pushed into anything. I had an admissions person talk to me on the phone and I applied with her. When I got accepted I got an email and a call from my academic advisor. She went over everything with me (how blackboard works, how to register, view bills, etc.). Overall I think it'll be a good experience. I have heard great things about the program and everyone there has been nothing but helpful. Good luck!

I was accepted into their program in July 2014, before they were accredited and was told all of my classes transferred. Then I got an ail saying that I had to repeat 4 general education courses before I could even start the nursing program.

Low and behold, I looked into other schools and found one that I didn't have to repeat any, and I would graduate faster too...and it is a very reputable school too! I say look alike your options and figure out if it is worth repeating/taking their gen-ed courses again!

Just ordered my books. Looks like I will be taking Scholarly Inquiry first, then stats and nurs 305 in fall. Best of luck to all starting next week. Should be interesting!
