Do online RN-BSN programs lower chances of acceptance to CRNA schools?

  1. 0 Hi all...quick question. Does anyone know if online RN-BSN is looked down upon when applying to CRNA schools? Any online schools in particular with good reputations/accepted by CRNA schools? I would like to make myself as competitve as possible when the time comes to apply to CRNA schools. Thank you in advance!

    Should not play a part in decision as long as your school is accredited. I have my BSN from UNC- Chapel Hill (RN-BSN) and was accepted without a problem

    I completed my RN to BSN online through California State University Dominguez Hills and start a MSN CRNA program in January. Please note: This CSUDH online BSN program is for RNs wanting to get their BSN. It is a degree awarded the same as at any other CSU campus BSN.

    It is accreditation that is important. So if you go the online route make sure it has the appropriate national accreditation. For example: all CSUDH nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN), and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

    Good luck.

    make sure it has the appropriate national accreditation.

    It's regional accreditation that you want to look for (it's devided by geographic location, hense the term 'regional'), it's the Gold standard, 'national' accreditation is not universally accepted.

    I completed my BSN online via Excelsior College. I applied to ten CRNA schools, was granted interviews at 7 schools and accepted a two schools, so far. Hope that helps.
