Regionally-accredited RN to BSN with no in-person clinicals/preceptorship or group work?

Posted

Hi, everyone! I'm hoping for some recommendations for online regionally-accredited RN to BSN programs that don't require in-person clinicals or preceptorships in our local area that don't require you to work, either. I'm a military spouse and we're about to move overseas (where I can't work as a nurse) so I want to be sure I don't have to work or do clinicals/preceptorships on site. I don't want to wait to do it until we get back. His assignment is *at least 3 years* over there, and I am motivated to do it now while I still have an active nursing license. Thank you for your suggestions!!

WGU, Capella Flexpath, Excelsior College (group projects required), just to name a few. I’ve read that WGU and Capella Flexpath students are able to complete their BSN in a matter of months for those who are highly motivated. I’m going the Flexpath option for my MSN beginning next month.

I received my BSN through Excelsior College and although doable, the group project was very challenging trying to piece it together with other students from different time zones. From my understanding of what I’ve researched from WGU and Capella Flexpath, you work at your own pace, and your costs and completion will be dependent upon that pace. Hope this helps...

I've done the legwork on this. WGU requires you to work or volunteer at least 20 hours a week. Capella, however, works with overseas spouses.

I'm in the same boat, so I'm interested in anything you've found.

This is no longer the case (WGU work 20hr/week).

WGU seems to think it's a current requirement.
