I am looking into several distance education programs to start working towards a BSN. Has anyone tried this method of education and how is it working out. From what I understand you are sent a package at the beginning of the course with required readings, video lectures and are required to submit essays, research and assignments by mail. Local test writing sites are arranged.

I chose this type of program to earn my BSN after many years of traditional programs just not fitting into my lifestyle. It did work for me & I graduated in 1997. It took me only one year to complete what I needed. I was an ADN with an additional 30+ college credits that I had accumulated over the years. I had to take the clinicals & 3 challenge exams which were done at pre-arranged testing sites. In addition to that I was lacking 6 Humanities credits which I earned with a Dantes video course. It worked for me AND I landed a job I would never have gotten without the BSN even with 25 years of nursing experience! Good Luck.
