Online RN Programs???? Other than Chamberlain and Excelsior

Students Online Learning

Published

I am currently looking for an online Nursing program. I've done a search but it either gives me mobility programs or Chamberlain or Excelsior. I realize there is no RN program that is 100% online. Are there any RN programs online that offer the onsite clinicals and labs much like Chamerlain and Excelsior? Any information is appreciated. Thanks

Have you rried College network. I know that you do some online and clinicals are done where you live. I am not to sure but there is an ad at the top of this site. I am sorry if this not what you are talking about, just thought I would try and help.

I'm enrolled at Thomas Edison State College tesc.edu 100% online. No clinicals. So far, I have taken one class and I am very satsified.

Thanks Diva_Nurse, Is that for an RN-BSN degree. I'm looking for either an LPN or RN program. Instead of searching for "online" RN programs. I'm having more results by searching for "online hybrid" programs for LPN/ RN programs

The College Network is a publishing company, not a school.

Yellowfoxx21, are you an LPN? Knowing your background would be helpful. :)

Excelsior is not actually online. You study the material and then test out. At the end, there is a pretty intense clinical that you must pass. :)

I don't have my LPN, I have a diploma in Medical Assisting. And I was in Nursing school for a semester, but due to some issues with the school (investigations and not answering questions), I didn't feel comfortable and I withdrew. I'm considering relocated and I know northern states offer more options other than the daytime program. I am pretty much doing some research before making a decision on my relocation. Hope that helps :)

You might try your local community colleges -- you're essentially starting from scratch, unless you can transfer some of your nursing credits from that one semester, or any pre-reqs (A&P, that kind of thing) that you might have had. I know some community colleges do have online didactic with in-person clinicals, but the clinicals are local to the school. Example:

Good luck!

Thanks, that's pretty much what I am looking for (SOme online lecture, with in person clincals..or something similar) I know the hybrid programs are few but I wanted to get as much info as possible. My credits should transfer. I have all of my Pre-reqs except for Microbiology. Thanks for the Info, I will keep it on hand just in case I decide to relocate to North Virginia

if you type in .college network it gives you a list of options between lpn to rn or lpn to bsn and so forth alot of the girls that i am in class with now are going through there. the only thing you need is your licenses with no waiting list and can attend clinicals where you live. it may not be a school technically speaking but it does offer what she was asking for. here is a small piece of the information that i obtained off the web site.

while the college network is not a school, it has developed its comprehensive learning module program to prepare you to earn college credit by passing credit-by-examination exams such as clep®, dsst®, and the excelsior college® examination. credits awarded by these credit-by-examination programs may be applied toward excelsior college's associate's degree in nursing, which is accredited by the national league for nursing accrediting commission (nlnac). final acceptance of credits rests with excelsior college®.

why the college network?

life happens and busy nurses like you are working hard to get the most out of it. however, working full-time makes going back to a traditional classroom setting impractical--not to mention the cost of tuition, books, transportation, and everything else. as an lpn/lvn, there is a way you can earn your associate's degree in nursing and become a registered nurse while balancing your personal and professional time. the college network offers learners the convenience of studying at an independent pace, from the comfort of their homes, and for a fraction of the cost of a traditional campus-based program. you can earn your adn and become an rn in as little as 24-36 months.

our educational materials are developed by professors from leading universities. we guarantee your academic success and financing, including credit-by-examination test fees, for the the college network portion of the program.
