Does anyone know of any online RN to BSN programs that do not require clinicals or campus visits?

Thanks! :)

Hi,

Thanks for the tip. I visited their (IWU) site and there are two courses that require a combined 98 hours of practicum. Do you know what that consists of? Ever known anyone to complete their program?

Thanks so much,

Robert

I've known several RN's to finish this program and they all have good things to say, which is why I enrolled. I choose to attend class once a week for 4 hours per week, and feel that interaction between RN's is more rewarding than online. IWU is a very friendly place and helpful to RN's in the adult-n-graduate programs.

I think all RN-BSN programs require some sort of clinical/practicum type experience, but the online programs allow you to arrange those in your home area around your own schedule.

I have enjoyed University of Phoenix's online BSN program, it does not require clinicals, just practicums which all good schools should have anyway's. Those are community type projects where you would work with an instructor setting up case management projects, things like that, it isn't easy but I love it. One class at a time, for 5 weeks, then on to the next one. Having an ADN I had to take a couple of Math and Humanities classes but everything is 100% online so although I chose to go to campus for orientation you don't have to go at all unless you want to, for the application, etc. But they helped with applying for financial aid, so it really was quite easy. No applciaiton fees and books are also online, the price was so much less than Chamberlain whcih is why I chose it. plus I read that the new head of the Ohio Board of Nursing is a graduate so I didn't worry about accredidation and stuff like that. If you live in or around Columbus you can call the local campus so you will have a local rep and get to graduate on stage like everyone else, even though it is online. i do recommend it, like I said it is not easy but so flexible.
