    This is generally true of all RN to BSN or MSN programs. Others I'm familiar with that are in the same category are Ohio, Temple and Drexel. If you do a search, you'll find a list of all of the RN-BSN programs already exists. Not sure about RN-MSN.

    The moral of the story is that it is feasible to do the RN-BSN on-line (some schools may have a minimal clinical reqt, often just an observation) but probably not the RN-MSN since you are often responsible for setting up your own clinical rotations with minimal help from the school.

    Is there a list of all RN-BSN programs (without clinicals) that "already exists"?

    Could you post the link or post the title (and date) of the thread?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure about that. My RN-BSN had practicum requirements that necessitated a clinical site. Several other RN-BSN programs in my state do as well.
