Online BSN program while doing ADN program

  1. I do not know whether this question has been asked before on this board, but I am wondering if there is an online BSN program one can do simultaneously while doing their ADN prgoram. I have checked my schools ADN program, and they are not connected with any universities where this can be probable. Someone please reply. Thanks!!!

    It is my understanding that online BSN programs require you to have your RN first.

    like the other poster said, most require that you complete your associates first. You may want to contact the school as they are the only ones with the answer.

    I am going to check again to see if they have any connections with any universities. Thanks!

    Please do not take this the wrong way... If you want to be a nurse, then stop looking for shortcuts! The path to getting your BSN is supposed to be tough and taking shortcuts will not get you where you want to be.

    I have only ever known of one online prelicensure BSN program and it was done away with years ago.

    What you are looking for is a traditional BSN program

    some programs allow you to enroll with a semester of ADN left, or after graduating but before getting your license. you will just have to look around...I know I didn't yet have my license when I started univ of wyoming online rn-bsn, but don't know if they still do that.

    We can get our ban through university of Memphis online after we graduate with ADN and it takes 1 year. I don't know about simultaneously... Good question! : )

    If there are, it's probably a special arrangement with a particular ADN program, not something available to the general public. I think I've seen a poster on here talking about doing BSN work before graduating.

    I know of one school that has "duel enrollment" in its BSN completion program for students in the local Community College ADN program -- if (and only if) they have a bachelor's degree in another field. Those students take their clinical courses at the Community College while they simultaneously take theory courses and cognates from the University. When they graduate with their ADN, they have only 1 more full time semester to finish at the University for their BSN.

    Another option might be to enroll as a special student at a univeristy and take some of the prerequistie courses, electives, etc. that would then be counted towards your BSN later. You wouldn't actually be enrolled in their nursing program (and there would be no guarantee that you would be accepted into their program) ... but you would be taking courses that would offer credits that would count toward the BSN and/or be transferred to another program later. That's a little risky, but it might be do-able.
