I just finished an RN to BSN program through University of Phoenix. I loved the program. I did classroom. I had tried doing an online program through Ohio University and was soooo lost. With UOP (classroom) there was either a paper or a presentation due each week. It was fast paced (5 week course mostly, with three 7 week courses), with a total of 13 courses. There were no breaks between courses but it really was a great program. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me and I can answer any questions you might have. Also, allnurses.com has a lot of great information (from nurses) on different programs that are available. Good luck!

I am currently in the RN to BSN program. I've been a nurse for the past 4 years working with my associated. I felt like getting into the program took a lot of time and preparation. I had to get recommendation letters! I thought that was crazy but it is a small program that I went through. I know of other programs that probably don't require as much. I am kind of awestruck on some stuff that I never knew about with just my associates. I think it is good to make everyone get their BSN because it opens doors and thought processes that I have never thought about before. I would love to go on to become a Nurse Practitioner but as I look into it there aren't a lot of options in my area at this time. Good luck!

Work it!

I can't provide you with much help in this area as I webt from high school straiggt into a BSN program.

I know nursing is requiring more & more education that is why I am looking into a doctorate program. I look forward to using the degree to mentor new people in the field of nursing and be an active part of developing research to improve outcomes for clients and staff.

It is a requirement in many places to have a BSN. Some places want even more! Craziness. At least it is easier to get it online than it used to be... of course, it isn't easier to pay for it.

I am 50 years old myself, and am finishing up the general education requirements that I will need to enroll the RN to BSN on-line program through the local University. It will take me 2 years to complete that program. I would then like to look at going for my Masters in Hospital Administration.

I just saw this post, I am working on my BSN now. It's a requirement of my job to complete it within the next 4 years. I will finish next August. I am going slowly.... one class at a time. I am a fairly new nurse, having gotten my license in 2009. And I am now 60.

It is much easier to get your BSN these days than it was then, but it is still a lot of work. Go for it. My favorite thought when wondering if it is a good choice is "where will you be in 2 years if you don't do this?" If you like the answer, stay where you are. If you want to do it, go for it! It will be good for your mind, heart, and your career. There are a lot of possibilities that you don't have as an associate degreed nurse.

I'm thinking about going back to school for my BSN. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm 51 and I have been a hospital nurse for 22 years. I got my associates in 1991.
