Any school that's offering an online RN to a CNA is a total scam and waste of money. You need to go to a real school.

I agree. Do you have a community college close by? Some offer part-time RN programs so you can take some classes online and some in the evening.

The college I went to offered some online courses, but the actual nursing courses were actually in the school building. I also would assume a school that is totally online for a CNA to become an RN is a scam.

I would check out your local large teaching hospitals...most of them have a nursing school. I think you can probably take some of your academic classes online, just depends on the curriculum of the school. I've NEVER heard of an entire RN school online. In fact, I doubt it is even possible given how much time is spent early on in the skills labs, etc. Good Luck!

Roseman University offers an Accelerated Bachelor Science Nursing (ABSN) program with the didactic portion (lecture) online, but the rest is in a classroom. You can always take prereq's online though. Colorado Community Colleges offers online A&P courses, Chemistry, Microbiology, and more-- all online. Do as much as you can online but then tranfer into a ADN or BSN program and finish the last 2 years in a classroom. OR, you can finish a degree in Psychology, Nutrition or anything you want online and then use that completed degree to get into a ABSN (12 month program). Either way, at some point you will need to attend campus.

Good luck!
