    I'm not familiar with any local weekend RN programs. However, CCAC has distance nursing classes. I believe it is something like 40% of the class can be taken on the web. You would still have to do clinicals and lab in person. I believe they have an evening/weekend program as well. If you take all of your prerequisites up front, you would only be left with trying to take the nursing classes during the evening/weekend format. And if you took those classes as distance nursing, you would have to go to campus even less.
    I would check them out: www.ccac.edu
    Also, Shadyside has an evening program as well.
    I go to BC3 and they are still "up in the air" about their distance nursing classes. They tried to put Nursing 101 on the web last fall, but the jury is still out on whether or not to continue that format.
    Good luck!
