B.S. in Nursing (RN to BSN)
Virtua, RN, Labor and Delivery

I lost my job earlier this year and I was having a difficult time finding a position I was even eligible to apply for. Many hospitals in the area are requiring applicants to have a BSN in order to apply. I was fortunate to find a position that does not require a BSN at this time, however I enrolled in Rowan anyway to make myself more marketable if something like this should happen again.

I researched many local Universities and found that Rowan was the right choice for me. It is close to home for the classes I do need to attend and the cost was much more reasonable than other choices I looked into. I was attracted to the fact that the majority of my classes would be online. I am working full-time and having classes online saved me time to still do the things that I enjoy. Online classes give me the flexibility to do my work when I have the time. I could be sitting at home in my pajamas in the middle of the night and be submitting my online posts which count as class participation. Instead of having a set schedule of classes that take up time during the day I am able to do a little bit here and there and still able to complete all my coursework without a problem.

I have already talked to co-workers who are considering enrolling in a RN to BSN program and I have recommended Rowan University. I feel that the University is cost effective, flexible to its students needs and the work can be completed even though many of us have busy lifestyles.
