On Line RN degree

  1. I have a BS in Health Care Mgmt and I am trying to get my RN degree. I have to start with an ASN apparently because I can not go to school full time. Excelsior college is the only college I know of that allows me to take my classes on line and complete my clinicals towards the end. Does anyone know of any other schools that are like this?

    Are you an LPN? Excelsior College requires one to have prior healthcare experience evidenced by an LPN license or EMT-P or some other certifications. Be sure to look into prerequisite courses or experience required for any program you are interested in.

    Many ASN programs have evening programs that meet two nights a week, give that a try.

    Thank You

    I am in the military with 12+ years as a medic and EMT B. Excelsior evaluated all my transcripts/experience and put together a degree plan for me.

    You don't do clinjicals with Excelsior. Your clinical skills are tested in a two-day exam after you finish most of your classes.

    If you have that much military experience you should check with your state to see if you qualify to take the NCLEX-PN. In my state a person with the appropriate military credentials can do this. With the LPN license, more doors will open up for you as far as RN school is concerned. Good luck.
