I've decided to take the plunge and apply to an Online RN-BSN program. Has anyone had any experience with either Fitchburg State U or Anna Maria College? I grew up in central MA, and I've actually taken a class at Fitchburg State, but I don't know either of their nursing programs
. Both seem like good choices for a working RN, and both are cheaper than my (very expensive) state U, even for out-of-state students.
According to the research I've done, Fitchburg State has an optional clinical component, while Anna Maria is purely online. Has anyone outside MA tried to arrange a clinical experience nearby? I'm 3 hours from the nearest MA hospital, and I'd prefer a clinical component, but I'll settle for a degree without one.
