Hopefully this is the right forum for this question. I'm finishing up pre-reqs in preparation to apply to direct-entry programs for summer 2014. I will be completing a BS in Sociology this summer from Arizona State University. I have been considered an "on-campus" student for tuition purposes but have taken all but 2 of my classes online.
I have not really enjoyed the online "learning" environment. I see that many of the direct-entry schools teach the RN portion in-person but leave the graduate portion to be taught online, available "at a distance."
I do not want that in a graduate program. I really want to attend a school that is somewhat tight-knit, where the professors/teachers are approachable and care about students. I want to attend lectures and take notes and study in the library. I guess I want to do all the things that I didn't get to do in my undergrad because I honestly feel that my undergrad education is lacking because I have taken online courses.
Can anyone recommend how to get a "feel" for different grad programs so I can attempt to narrow down my applications?
