Online pharmacology?

  1. Hello,

    I was recently accepted to a great Accelerated BSN program. I still need to take pharmacology, and had planned to take it this summer, but can't find a class! Does anyone knows of a 3 unit pharm class being offered in So. Cal, or online somewhere? I can take it through the school I'll be going to, but it's a private school and very expensive.

    Thanks!

    may i ask what program to which you were accepted? if you know of another accbsn program in southern california, i'd like to know!

    as far as pharmacology, i don't know anyone who offers it online. however, you may want to post this under the student nursing forum, which has a another forum called distance/online learning, there are plenty of people there more knowledgable than i on what's available online.

    did you look at the cal state univ's? not cheap, but not as expensive as private school.

    No, this one is Pennsylvania. I decided against Mt St marys because they required two religous studies classes (like I have time with all the other prereqs?) and I don't want to be a guinea pig with Long Beach's accelerated program.

    But check out Univ. of Wisconsin OshKosh. They have an on line accelerated BSN. My understanding is that they set you up with a nurse in your state (and probably a certian hospital) and you do your clinicals with them. Cost is about the same as a standard private school. I just found out about it two days before the app. deadline, or I would have applied there! Good luck!

    Check out the "california virtual campus" website it has all online courses available in CA I don't remember the url but if you put in the above title I'm sure you will find it.
    Best of luck hope you find one.

    Great web site, thanks for the info. No Pharm classes this summer unfortunately, but now at least I know I can stop wasting my time looking! I found a class that might fit through Canyon college; we'll see.

    University of Washington used to offer a cassette based course which was three units.
    It has been a few years so I don't know if it is still available.

    I found a course through Canyon College. It's on line, I can take it whenever I want, and the advisor at the shcool I applied to says it looks like a great class. And it's about $2000 less than taking it through a private school! Yay!
