Does Indiana allow nurses to add to their nursing licenses using online or distance education? If so what? The reason I am asking is that my first degree is in elementary education. The Indiana teacher licensing board has virtually made it impossible for an Indiana teacher to get licensed or renew a teaching license with online credit. If teachers cannot renew a license with online credit how can nurses do it? Just a question I thought I would throw out there and see what responses I get. I am deluged with popups about getting a masters in education or special education and cannot have that approved by the teaching board. So what standards are the nursing boards using to determine what online/distance education it will accept on a nursing license?
