    You have to do the entire ASN program with Deaconess.

    I think the program was designed to encourage students to remain for the entire ASN however it is clearly delineated by a "PN component" which gives students the option.

    DCN has a good thing going here with endless possibilities but it won't be long before other schools start offering online ASN programs. It is in the schools best interest to get things organized once and for all to hold onto the students they have as well as attracting new students.

    For me as an older student it is unacceptable to learn in a disorganized environment. You better believe when other schools start offering this same type of program word will travel quickly about the schools that have their act together. Yes I know there are some who say this is a new program and relatively speaking it is, only 4 years. But within that four years I have heard the same issues resurface over and over without resolution. Young or old, a program with the same recurring issues gets a reputation. There are some new staff members onboard and it is my hope they will bring about the changes this school desperately needs.

    DCN did the leg work in getting an online ASN program off the ground. Organizing is the easy part that some savvy school out there is already working on. I'd hate to see DCN loose perspective students but competition is stirs progress.

    I agree. I think that other colleges will follow suit with online programs. There is a local college nearby that already offers a "hybrid" option. Same concept except clinicals are completed with an instructor on the floor.
