on line nursing degree question

  1. I am getting my ADN-will be an RN next fall.
    I am considering getting my BSN on line. My goal is to be a Nurse Ppractitioner someday. Does anyone know anything about these online degrees and if they are any good??

    I am enrolled in an RN-MSN program that is entirely distance education. From what I understand, I will plan my own clinicals and get them approved. Just started working on my gen ed classes, so can't tell you if it's any good yet. I would say, check your colleges and univs throughout the state (since many are going to distance ed) and see if they have what you want. Also, if your goal is to be a NP, see if they have RN-MSN. You might be able to save lots to credits hours (time and money!) Best wishes in whatever you decide to do!!

    Athabasca University in Alberta has a distance program to be a NP; University of Calgary has one too
    these programs would not be recognized by ANCC or AANP but is recognized in Alberta.

    I am doing distance ed for my masters in science with a major in nutrition. Thought the nursing would be boring. I am going to go on for PHD if I can afford it. Right now there are five of the seven people in my family in college so money is very tight. If you want to know more about my program let me know.

    Have you looked at the traditional schools that offer online degrees? I have heard good things about Drexel University, which is out of Philadelphia. I believe they have BSN, MSN, and NP options. Hope that helps
