I was just refused admission to USI intheir RN-BSN program because they claim NY passed a law requiring all online programs outside the state must have a clinical component. How can NY make this requirement of a licensed Nurse? How can they enforce it? I have my license! I can find no word of this online, can you? I emailed the DOE but no response yet.
nycjimbo, I live in New York and am going to Ohio University. $243/credit hour and they do have a clinical component but it is just a project that you work on with a mentor. You don't actually have to go to clinical per se. I started in Feb and will be finished next April. "Yes" I had to take statistics, microbiology, nutrition, music, and cultural anthropology but they accepted credits from over 3o years ago. Nursing classes are 5 weeks, and move fast. I am on my 4th nursing class out of 9.
