What advice would you give to those considering the RN to BSN online program?

I would recommend setting a goal for yourself on what you would want to achieve in an RN to BSN program. Make your goals realistic. Many students continue to work and have families. Stay organized, utilize your peers within the classroom and make it part of your everyday routine. Know what is expected of you early on. This will help lead you to success.

Staffing and long hours can be one of the biggest challenges in nursing today. Pursuing a BSN is definitely a decision you choose as an investment to yourself.
