Anybody taking ADN to BSN online through UW system?

  1. I would sure like a study buddy

    I'm taking a humanities course this summer with my son who is getting a math degree from UW Madison. Then in the fall I start my BSN classes.

    Hi!
    Just wondering how your BSN classes are going! Where did you get your ADN? I went to UW Madison for education and am now going back to school at Moraine Park in Beaver Dam. I start ADN courses in Jan. Just thinking ahead for when I get to the RN to BSN point :-) I would love to hear what you think. Was it difficult to get in? Thanks!

    Its not hard at all to get into the RN-BSN program. I'm going through UW Green Bay and would highly recommend them. Congrats on getting into the ADN program. Did that take a long time?

    I finish my ADN in a few weeks...have a BS in dietetics, but plan on getting to work on a BSN. I was just looking over some of the UW Green Bay program information. It will take a while to figure out where and when, so I may as well start shopping now!

    Hi Misty! Moraine Park, along with most of the WI tech schools just went to a petition process instead of a waiting list. so basically you take the NLN test and apply. I sent in my application in the beginning of oct and I start in Jan. so no it didn't take long, but it is the first semester that they did this so I don't think as many people applied because they didn't take their NLN exam in time. so I think I got lucky. I also applied for part time and they keep a certain number of spots open for that and I don't think that many people want to be part time. It will take me 4 years, but I think that will work out best with my family. I am just thinking ahead to when I am done and want my BS. Kind of getting ahead of myself :-) Are you working as a nurse right now? Where did you go for your ADN? I never even knew that Moraine Park existed so I am hoping that it won't be difficult to get a job when I am done since it isn't the UW or MATC and I would want to work in Madison. We'll see! How long will it take you to get your BSN?

    Yes I've been working as a nurse for quite a while now. Graduated from nursing school in '96 {I'm old!!!} ..its been quite a journey

    I started nursing school through UW Green Bay this past fall taking 7 credits online. UW system has a program thats almost all online so thats helpful with my work schedule. I must say its been a really good experience so far. I talked to UW ParkSide and UW Milwaukee and of course UW Green Bay. The ladies at Green Bay are absolutely wonderful and very helpful. Got a bad feeling from Milwaukee and Parkside. Glad I went the way I did. It'll take me a while to get my BSN also but whats the hurry really? Unless you want it for further education like Masters or you want to get into management. I have had very little trouble getting a job because I'm ADN quite frankly I'm glad I went that route.

    hey Misty!
    I am glad that you like the uwgb program. isn't it so nice to be able to go part time?! I already went to school once-to Madison for elementary education-and now we have 2 kids so I definitely couldn't go full time. Moraine park where I am going was the only school I found in the area that part time was an option. do you work in a clinic or a hospital and what area? I am glad to hear that you have never had a problem getting a job as an ADN. The more nurses I talk to, the more I hear that so many nurses have their ADN rather than BSN. A job after all this would be good. :-) Have a great week!

    No you won't have trouble finding a job as an ADN. That being said ADN programs are kick-
    butt. The ADNs come out ready and running.

    Hi Misty!
    Just wanted to check in with you and see how the BSN program went or is going if you are still at it! How long did it take you? I need to check into how long it will take with a BS in another area. I hope everything is going well!
