I am writing on behalf of my mother. She's been an RN for nearly 25 years but never got her bachelors degree. She's done hospital work, home health, and now works at a biotech company. She has no intention of going back to the hospital but wants to get her degree.
She would really rather avoid doing the clinical portion of the online BSN or MSN programs so I was hoping someone knows if she might be able to get around the clinical portion of it.
Are there programs that are flexible for experienced nurses and not only for recent grads? Are there are experienced RN's that went back to school later in their careers and got around the clinical/practicuum? Any programs that take the years of experience into consideration and not just grades?
