Any DL degrees in Michigan?

  1. Hi Everyone!!

    I am currently making a career chage (geologist to nurse). Unfortunetly, I (or my checking account) cannot afford to leave my current job but, I really, really want to be a nurse. Does anyone know of any distance learning programs in Michigan were I can do classes online and then my clinicals part-time somewhere? Help!!

    I was in the same boat you are, needed to work full-time and couldn't find a nursing program to fit around my working schedule. And they wonder why there's a nursing shortage?!?!

    I don't know where you live in Michigan but the only program I found that was flexible was Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, MI. They have evening classes and clinicals.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Have you thought about Deaconess College of Nursing. It is online and from what I hear is a very respected program.

    Don't you have to be a LPN to go through Deaconess College program?

    I'm in Michigan also and am interested in finding a DL nursing program. Were you able to find anything?

    [B]...if you are in the Saginaw, Midland, Bay City area, Delta College has an RN program that is part-time. Instead of 4 semesters of clinicals, it is 5 or 6? Check it out if you are close by, I graduated from there in May 2002. God bless.

    I'm in the same situation as you are, Kris! I have a BS and MA degree, but want to change careers and become a nurse. I can not take time away from my full time job to go back to school either. I am looking for an online ASN program, but all I seem to find is the RN to BSN programs.

    I looked at Deaconess this morning--it appears that this is an online ASN progam. I am waiting to hear back from them.

    If you find any other program, please let me know:

    thank you!

    i realize this is a little late after reading the dates on the posts above mine but most places won't let you do anything bellow bsn on line due to the extensive clinical work that they require for the degree. i have tried every course i can think of. i am an lpn working full time and looking for a higher degree and i ended up taking classes at a community college and having to trim about my work week. but i hear the the excelsor college does the lpn to rn program on line.
