Online associate degree?

Posted

Hello,

I have done some of my prerequisites before I left to go into the LVN program at a trade school. I have graduated and I am looking into going to the RN program at a community college near me, but I was wondering if there was online classes I can do to finish the rest or get my associate degree? My community college does offer a lot of online classes. I also live in California so I don't know if states have different ideas of going into a RN program.

Thank you!

There are many classes for the program you may be able to take online, but the core nursing clinical placements will need to be in person. There are no RN programs that are 100% online.

This.

I did a hybrid bridge where all of my theory was online (we went into the school for all tests), but had our clinical portion at the local hospitals.

You can't do it all online due to the clinical hour requirements set forth by the BONs.
