What is the best RN to BSN online school to go if you've been out of school for 20 years? I have not written papers/essays in a long time and it seems that's what every program is.

Tarleton State University. Weekly discussion boards for the most part, random outside apps/programs (super easy) and one major paper or project per semester which were all very easy and generously graded in my opinion. I'm graduating with a 4.0 working nights.

I went through Capella, it was great for me. I did the fast track, finished in about 4 months. Make sure wherever you choose can be used toward a future degree you might pursue.

Western Governors University (WGU) is wonderful and doesn't charge extra for out of state tuition. About $3000 a semester - and you can take as many classes you want in a semester for no extra cost. They were great at helping me through the process of starting, picking classes, and I had a counselor who was great!

How can I help you.. a Nurs of +30 year, Hosp exec, in a DNP program currently
the school has to fit your financial capability or scholarships. most online programs provide flexibility we all need.

I did mine through WGU after being out of school for 35 or so years and was happy with the program. They are a pass/fail school so if you like to work towards high gpa, then it is not the school for you. The instructors are very helpful and there aren’t very many papers.

Great question! I had been out of school for seven years when I enrolled in the RN-BSN program at Aspen U. I was rusty! The very first class will get you back on track with collecting research articles, writing papers, and APA format. I love the program because every class follows the same format in terms of the types of assignments (discussion board questions and classmate feedback, essays, and occasional PowerPoint presentations) and due dates. I also like that you can take a break between modules if you need it. All of my instructors have been great. I hope this helps you. Good luck!

I went to Chamberlain University for my BSN and Western Governors University for my MSN. If I knew about WGU before I went for my Master’s, I probably would have just went there. But, in hindsight, I wouldn’t have had the experiences I had at Chamberlain either! I went to both the Atlanta, GA campus and Alexandria, VA campus and I must say there are some true advocates for nurses to succeed in that school. They don’t make it easy, but they will teach you and support you in what you need to be the best new graduate nurse IF you apply yourself. WGU challenged me to learn how to manage my time, be accountable for my work, and be a strong leader. Go to a school that follows your reason for wanting to be a nurse!

Through Aspen was it alot of essays and discussion posts? Aspen is not a program I am familiar with.
