Clinicals through the state board?
I'd clarify this point. I've never heard of such a thing and will be checking in on this thread to see if anyone else has. If the state board offers clinicals, that should please a lot of nurses out there who are stuck unable to graduate from their online NP programs due to not having clinical sites and preceptors.
OP, this is not meant to be mean so please don't take it as such, it is just a word to the wise. Your entry is full of spelling
errors and I found I had to re-read it to understand your post. We all make typos (especially me!) and don't always proofread
. I'm bad about run on sentences and ignoring all that is holy in punctuation. I just want to stress to you that online courses require a great deal of writing because you aren't there to convey messages in person.
Make sure you are prepared to deal with the writing requirements. A nursing program is going to expect that you are able to write well. BSN programs have a great deal of research and paperwork built into the program. There are several good books that address mechanics and style (like the "Writing for Dummies" kind of series) without boring you to death or being ridiculously long. They are nothing to be ashamed of, I used one to get through statistics.
Just make sure you set yourself up for success in any way that you can. >> The writing you put in a patient's chart becomes part of a permanent record. Repeated errors in spelling and punctuation can look unprofessional and come back to haunt you.
