Can it be done online?

  1. Hi everyone, this is my first post, but I have been learning so much from you over the past year. I have a question for you. Do online LPN or Associates degrees work? I work full-time in another field and we have a part time business, and I am starting at square one in nursing at nearly 40 years old. Nursing is a longtime dream and this is my first opportunity.

    I'm on the West Coast, so there's no option to quit working to go to school, and don't have a lot of time for night classes. I'm really good at online classes, but I hear nurses from Excelsior can have a hard time getting hired. Since nurses are in high demand, should I do it anyway? Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the site, DoveWing. We're glad to have you.

    Excelsior nurse here. Didn't have any trouble getting hired. Went on one interview and received job on first choice unit. Most of my EC friends had similar experiences. Do you have previous healthcare education? It's required for EC admission.
