    It is true that the majority of the RN-BSN component is more theory since most clinicals were done in original nursing school. I am a student at Univ of Ph online currently in my fourth class. There is a small clinical component (which I haven't gotten to yet) I believe the majority of it is with teaching, etc. and can be done through your job. It is not a big part of the program.

    If you find one, make sure it is accredited (i.e. NOT Canyon College!)
    I do not believe there is one - 110-120 hours of some teaching/community health/other assorted BS clinical is pretty standard for all the programs I researched.

    I'm beginning to wonder about the program I signed up for here. It's cheap but seems to have a big clinical component in some of the practicums. Like finding two families that have health care issues and working with them, and spending time in the field at various clinics, etc. I'm not sure I can do all that.

    I might have to look into the University of Pheonix after all. I'm looking for one that can be primarily done online, without a whole lot of drama. Wishful thinking I guess. LOL

    From what I've researched on the various online schools, U of P seems the best way to go. Less hassle and more options there.

    I enjoyed my ADN to BSN at University of Phoenix. It is easy, just sign on, answer some questions, write a few papers, voila - you have your BSN. I especially liked the fact that it was so portable. I went to Florida, St. Thomas, Chicago (multiple times) and found it very easy to get my work done while away.

    I've generally heard good things about them. And they are accredited by the state of California. But a friend of mine just told me that one of the state universities would not accept her University of Phoenix bachelor's for entry into a masters program. If true, that's very weird. It's probably a good idea to check for potential problems like this before spending a lot of money.

    No experience with them, but saw someone asking about them here on the message boards, so checked them out - their program looked interesting, but when I checked for accreditation and they had NEITHER NLN nor CCNE accreditation, I could not run the other way fast enough!! They have accreditations, but not ones that anyone regards as legit. A degree from there would be worth about as much as the paper it was printed on, if that. Forget about ever applying to grad school without an accredited degree. Big waste of money if you ask me.
