I graduated nursing school in May 2021 with my ASN from a local community college. By December 2021 I had my BSN. I did Capella's RN to BSN Flex Path. I think people who review this university negatively are those who do not want to take the initiative... Read More and do their work. This is not high school. This is adult life for people who are working adults who want to advance their education. I personally found it very challenging to be disciplined and get my work done, but I went in with the mindset of doing my degree ASAP and pay as little as possible. I started in July 2021 and by December 3, 2021 I was done with my BSN. This is a serious test of discipline. If you cannot commit to being disciplined I would recommend a brick and mortar school to obtain your BSN or MSN. I am contemplating doing my MSN now at Capella too, and with Flex Path.
I am in my first year in the Doctor of Social Work (DSW) and my experience as been great. The professors are very helpful and are easy to reach if/when needed. I realize that this is my journey and my financial invest.....WHAT I put in is what I'll get... Read More out of it. So far I have been getting all A's but it's a matter of staying on top of everything. NS
I am working full time as a nurse, so 40 hours a week working Monday - Friday. I needed a school that is flexible and allow me to go fast at my own pace. I was determined to finish in 1 semester. I only had to do the core classes (8 classes total) with... Read More 4 papers each for the last 7 courses, the first being 3 papers; a total of 31 papers for my BSN. I completed my BSN in 11 weeks (1 semester), which cost me only $2,800 (after military discount; would have been like $3,200 or something like that). I would have finished in a month and a half, but I was just too lazy to go day after day with papers. I averaged one class every 1.3 weeks (again would have been a class and a half every week but too lazy). Papers are super easy to write (except for 4030, that was a bit difficult but def doable in 1 week). Let me know if you have any questions.
