- appreciate the response.
I've actually applied to another online program but their transcript evaluation was a nightmare process in which they've ignored much of my prior coursework and without providing any rationale, are insisting that I take 6 additional non-nursing undergrad courses. With 3 prior degrees and roughly 300 credits of coursework, I'm not really keen on taking a lot of additional classes, so I was looking at hopefully more reasonable alternatives such as U WY.
While the U WY program seems great, the clinical requirement and to some degree, the need for proctoring may make it not viable. I do not presently work as an RN - not having an employee relationship with a local hospital will make it very difficult to schedule that 120 hour clinical rotation. While I do have some relationship with a number of local hospitals (as a volunteer EMT and past ambulance captain with my local fireco) none of these are willing to host me - or any other non-employee - for clinical sessions. In fact, many of the nursing programs
in my area are also having difficulty in setting up clinical rotations, with some hospitals actually terminating relationships with colleges that span 20+ years.
