I am a non-nursing professional currently applying to second-degree accelerated BSN programs (for those with non-nursing bachelor's degrees). I need to work full-time until I begin a program, hopefully in January 2015, and therefore need to take prerequisite courses online. After graduating the BSN program and working as an RN, my long term goal is to be a nurse anesthetist. I understand the programs are difficult and that my desires may change. This question is really about me being as well-positioned as possible.
My father brought up a concern and now I'm a little paranoid. Could taking the BSN prerequisites online (through a community college, SUNY to be exact) potentially hinder my entrance into a nurse anesthetist or other MSN program several years down the road? Specifically, the prerequisites are anatomy & physiology I & II, microbiology, psychology, and nutrition. Some of those include labs that are also conducted online.
I've checked with several of the BSN programs I'm applying to, and they're fine with the online/CC prerequisites. I just want to know if anyone has experience with Nurse Anesthetist programs not accepting online prerequisites from several years before.
