    I would be interested in that also. With schedules, continuing ed, family, home, etc..it is sometimes difficult to travel to take one course at a time. I hope we find something!

    I just registered for the TEL-NET nursing BSN option at Plattsburgh, I start this sept. There are a number of "mickey-mouse" courses offered over the NET. Most of the "nursing" classes have to be taken at a co-operating community college (ACC for me). I'm told at least one course a semester is given over the net. Hope this helps.

    There are numerous BSN programs (even a few BSN to MSN programs on the net. Try University of Maryland for starters. Experts predict that by 2000 distance learning will be a 5 billion /yr enterprise- it has to be -if you have family- and you need to stay credentialled or current- it will be the only way to go.
    Try doing a search for "distance learning" . If there are prereqs that you need-see if the local community college offers it on-line. It will save you some tuition expense.
    Good Luck! Cindy D.

    Thanks for the input, I was getting discouraged and yet figured there had to be a way, and a way that is cost effective...

    I would recommand University of Wisconcin Green Bay BSN-LINC program. just need to take 30 units upper level nursing class to graduate. I started last August and I will gradate next spring by only taking 2 classes per semester. (Of course I already done all my GE at the local community college.)

    Hi!

    Here's a thread on the Distance Learning board in the student section. Check it out: http://allnurses.com/forums/f125/rn-...ne-105380.html

    I'm currently attending Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences. It's NLN approved. I've taken my co-reqs there too like Statistics, Chemistry, World Civ., etc. I love it!

    Generally a lot of the online programs are private schools and a bit pricey. Good luck!

    Thanks for all the information, but just be apprised that this thread originated in 1998, and the OP is long gone
