Is there such a thing as a US accredited online ASN program?

Posted

I mean one that doesn't require an LPN license...

I'm getting older. I work full time as it is & I have a mortgage to pay. I want to have a child before I get too old but I've looked into getting my LPN & it just doesn't seem worth it. Why get paid half the amount while still getting almost all of the education in one shot just to have to go back & get my RN? I found an online LPN school but no one I've found offers RN online. I'd love to get into my current college's program but there's such a long waiting list... I just don't feel like I have that kind of time.

Your thoughts?

I would always say nine times out of ten go for the RN.

Hi were is a on line LPN course?

I don't even want an LPN. It just seemed like the only way to get my RN online... LPN-RN. I can get my LPN online, but I can't get my RN. It's frustrating because what I want doesn't seem within reach.

The community college I go to has an accelerated online nursing program but you still have to go to campus one day a week for lab and you have to go to clinical once a week as well.

I don't even understand how it would be possible to get an ADN online. I realize most of the work is learned in the first few years on the job but how are you going to get hired if you have never stepped foot in a hospital as a student nurse first...?

I had assumed that even though the classes would be online, there would still be clinicals scheduled with a local healthcare facility. Other online programs require this, so I believe an ASN would use the same concept.

I'm not exactly looking for an easy way to be an RN, I am just having difficulty reaching this goal in the traditional way because of my circumstances.

I didn't realize there were programs that offered that sort of thing. I have heard of EC but I didn't think that included a clinical portion.

I didn't mean it to sound like you were looking for something easy. If anything, I would think an online program would be much harder. I am just a school snob and I can't imagine going anywhere but the local community college or university. But that is just my ignorant way of thinking...and I only use this as a means of judging my path, and nobody elses.

Columbus State Community College in Ohio offers an online ADN, if you have a bachelors degree. There are only two pre-reqs.
