What is the best RN to BSN online school?

  1. what is the best rn to bsn online school? also, which ones do not require clinicals? i am a disabled nurse and cannot do clinicals. i was going to a non-online rn to bsn program but had to quit because i had back surgery. are there any programs that you do not recommend? i don't have many credits left to go (i got most of the base curriculum out of the way i.e. english, math, etc).

    :typing
    thanks!

    I searched google "RN-BSN program w/o clinicals" and this university showed up.

    Very few RN to BSN schools require clinicals. The assumption is that you've done that. www.excelsior.edu, and SUNY online nursing programs.

    Florida Hospital College doesnt require any campus visits and its regionally accrediated so you can transfer your credits anywhere.

    Try Thomas Edison State College online nursing , it costs half that of Chamberlain
    SUNY might be cheaper
    I dont know the reputations or prerequisites of these institutions and take no responsibility for this info...

    I went through Indiana State University RN-BSN program. It's top notch. Now I teach there. It's good, quick and cheap. Professors are top notch and are not drama oriented.

    I did my RN to BSN program at University of Phoenix and they required 90 hours of community health clinicals...however, I was able to do the program quickly and like another poster said, w/o drama.

    I go to GCU- grand canyon university. It's 410$credit/hr and a different class every 5 weeks. You have a group project every class and papers to do every week. I really like it

    wow!!
    "you get what you pay for!" is a quote that i've heard all my life and it's totally true.
    it's expensive, but it meets your needs that you won't have any physical in-person clinicals.

    Chamberlain's tuition is less expensive for students who take more than 12 credits per semester. A flat fee of $6900 is charged per semester for 12 to 17 credits, so students who take 17 credits per semester are paying $405/credit. Bulk discount.

    I just graduated from the LPN-BSN program at Indiana State and I second Tammy. I went to commencement and pinning last weekend as well as a dinner at the home of one of my professors. I met several of my professors and they are just as great in person as they are online. They were involved and genuinely interested in our success. I'm really going to miss having classes with them.
