Is it possible to do an online program if I want a BSN or an ADN without nursing experience? I have a previous bachelors and masters in an unrelated field. Thanks so much for your help.

I do not believe there is a way to do this. If so, I would have found it. I too have an undergrad and grad degree in a non-nursing field. I decided to go the ADN route, because I could get in without waiting 2 years. When I graduate and pass NCLEX-RN, I will go for an RN-MSN program.

I don't think that is really something that you would want to do, even if you could. You really need to have the classroom time for skills, etc. It is a key part of learning. Anyone who told you different would be doing you a disservice.

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh was the only one that does definitely does offer the people with BS degree in something other than nursing to obtain a BSN online. It is called second degree option. Check out the website on the above post.

Our on-line program (ADN)at Columbus State Community College is for people with a bachelors degree in anything. You do lectures online and discussions and such,but you have to go in for clinicals and labs and testing.
