I'm currently shopping around for a decent online RN-BSN program. The issues I am facing is that I'm scared that if choose an online program, I wont be able to apply to an ARNP program at a local University, should I choose that route in the future. I am interested in GCU, UTA and South University. I'm open to any suggestions. I wanted to keep it at my local junior college or university, but the time commitment is just too much. I like having the convenience of being able to take school wherever; plus, the local schools have an annoying amount of classes that are school specific requirements and will end up being expensive anyways. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

There are many good ones out there. I went to Liberty University and thought it was a great program.
I went to Jacksonville State University and I got into both my grad schools. Can't say anything bad about my program. It was relatively quick and not too difficult.

I went to Chamberlain online for my RN to BSN. I'm now at a very good school for my NP. The online RN to BSN wasn't an issue for me at all.

I attended Excelsior College for both my ASN and BSN, got into FNP school just fine =) As long as the program is an NLNAC/CCNE BSN program you shouldn' thave any problems getting into one!
Hi, I'm looking into Chamberlains RN to BSN program and would like to know if no clinical really means just that? Also, how did you like the program? Was it difficult? Thanks:up:
I attended UTA and got into three very well known NP program...it was never an issue. I would say it helped my application given that most school prefer if you are familiar with how the online delivery system is setup and carried out. In fact, I was asked during my interviews if I was familiar and or comfortable with taking online courses. Majority of the B&M program today are hybrid programs...so they want to ensure you are capable of getting the work done.
I had NO clinical.Was it easy? Yes and no. There are some classes that are hard...quite rough but doable. There are some classes that really aren't too bad. The easy part is that they are predictable. Their classes maintain the same discussion board requirements in every class. My grad program...every class is completely different. My RN-BSN...I really knew what I was getting into. So the predictably gave some easy to it.
