Hello,

Does anyone know of any online RN private programs? I work full time as a CNA and my job will not budge on accommodating me for school. I'm trying to find ways to attend school. I'm older, (44) and I do not want to wait to do all of the prerequisites. Any suggestions?

I havent heard of any RN programs full online apart from being temporarily that way from COVID, but if you are looking for doing prerequisites online you could check a local community College. I'm starting my prereqs in a few months and all the ones I need for my ADN are online, and all for my BSN except for Chemistry are as well. I plan to be online as much as I can before I have no choice and start my nursing program.

Chamberlain has an online RN with clinicals 3 days a week during weeks 7 & 8 of each set of classes, but you have to live in certain states.

‘’I think wgu might have something like that as well, again, only with clinicals in certain states.

Different job? Because honestly if they are unwilling to budge so you can go to school- they clearly are not a quality employer.

Even if you find an online program that doesn’t require prerequisites upfront, you will end up doing them as part of the process. It would be impossible to learn nursing without the cursory understanding of the underlying mechanisms provided by A&P, Microbio, Chemistry, etc. every program will either require them upfront or as part of the structured program. There is no getting around it.

then again, if your target school will take straighterline, portage, une, John Hopkins, etc. self paced online courses then you have options for getting the prerequisites done much faster.
