    Please do a search on this forum. There are many programs out there. Not sure which state that you are in, but before beginning any program, please check with your Board of Nursing and make sure that the program is accepted there. Not all programs are accepted in all 50 states.

    Just do your homework before signing any contract.

    two programs i know of are deaconess college of nursing and excelsior college. both are acredited but are different in format. as was stated before check on your state requirements before deciding on any nursing program and you also might want to check out each schools website.

    www.deaconess.edu
    www.excelsior.edu

    good luck in your quest
