    I take it you mean you've already got the RN and want the BSN?

    A lot of colleges and universities offer online degrees, in addition to classroom settings. Go to an NLN approved colledge or university and see if they have an online program. There are many out there and they are good.

    My spouse just got his master's degree from Bellvue University in Omaha in Health Care Administration, and he did it 100% online. It's the same diploma as the regular classroom people get. No where does it say he got his online.

    I find online courses convenient and hope to continue from the local uni. Which has both online and in-class ADN RN to BSN programs. Both have the same classes, one you just take online, the other you go to a classroom.

    BTW, the programs I've looked into online are no faster than the classroom. They shouldn't be unless since it's the same work, just online.

    Good luck.
