Navy NCP online/campus degree

  1. 0
    Hi everyone,

    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?

    I briefly recall that the school has to have a certain type of certification to qualify. Best of luck.

    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

    You can obtain an RN-BSN degree online with the NCP, that's how I did it. As long as it's NLN/CCNE.

    Thanks! I really didn't want to commute over an hour away.

    I graduated in October, conferred in December and went to ODS in January.

    I talked to a recruiter who said that the Navy does not take online degrees. Was your program an exception? Where did you go to school?

    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.

    Thanks Christina3737! As soon as I get my letter of acceptance (from an online RN-BSN program) I'm just going to get the ball rolling with my kit! When do you graduate from your program?
