If BSN is obtained online, can I still walk the stage?

  1. 0 Hello Nursing World,

    I have a question ...It may be a little silly but I was just wondering, if I receive my BSN online, will I still have the option of going through the formalities of 'Walking the Stage' to formally receive my diploma??

    I really don't want to deprive myself of that experience, yet I'd rather obtain my BSN online versus a Classroom setting. What's a girl to do??

    Please assist ...Thanks!!

    This would be a question for the school where you are planning to earn your degree. Bet you will find out that they allow all graduates to participate in the ceremony.

    It will depend on if your online school has a physical campus, how close it is to you, and if it produces a graduation ceremony. I think many programs do. I "walked the stage" and had a great time. It also meant pictures for my family in the cap and gown - older relatives loved that. Check with the programs you are considering.
