Has anyone taken a self-paced online ethics course that has college credit?

I did in my BSN program, but it was part of the nursing curriculum. Be sure it pertains to nursing, if that is your discipline.

I have taken Ethics as an elective, but it was general ethics not medical ethics. Worst darn course EVER.

I took Ethics as a telecourse through my local community college about four years ago. Telecourse meant it was offered through our local cable company, as a cable access show. I live a bit out of town and didn't get the channel so I had a friend record it for me a few times a week. It was basically self-paced; you were expected to take the kind of notes you needed to come in for testing every few weeks. I generally love philosophy courses, but this one almost bored me to death. It was more about philosophers and what they thought about ethics than a healthcare-specific ethics course (which I think I would have really enjoyed). It wasn't bad though; honestly I didn't ever study and I think I got a B+ or A-.

I liked ethics and it was online but not self paced.
