I am set on applying for the Navy NCP next year after I finish my ADN and start my BSN. I have read in this forum that some recruiters are saying that online degrees are not accepted. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

Thanks! You're absolutely right, the school has to be CCNE accredited. What I was referring to was whether I could qualify for the NCP with either an online or on campus degree (from a CCNE accredited school). I'm really hoping it doesn't make a difference. I'm still waiting for a recruiter to get back to me...lol
Hey! One recruiter told me that the Navy does not accept online degrees for the NCP, but I spoke with another recruiter shortly after that and she said that she got someone selected for the NCP with an online degree. So now I am working on getting together a package for next year. I would talk with the recruiter some more or find another one.
So, it depends on the recruiter if you get accepted with an online degree or not? This process makes no sense to me at all. Is the application process not a rigid system? The recruiter I talked to said no degree online. So, please can someone give a little more light on as to how an online degree could be considered?
So I think the final word on whether the Navy accepts online degrees is...it depends on the board. Sometimes the board is accepts kits from applicants with online degrees, and when it's more competitive, they don't. It all depends on when you apply. Technically they accept online degrees, but it will depend.
