Is a online ADN -BSN program ok??

  1. If I am an RN & enrolled in an online RN-BSN program, would it decline my chances of being hired? Is the online BSN worth it? Would I be looked down upon? Am I allowed to do this? I am going to complete an ADN program soon & heard many are being hired with BSN only. Do you think the path I wish to take is ok?

    Yes, it's okay and that is actually my plan. I'm graduating in May, but already looking for work and plan on starting my BSN in August or January. Since I want to work in a hospital and most hospitals are going for magnet status, it just makes more sense for me to get the BSN. Most RN to BSN programs are online, but there are a few that are hybrid. My advice is that even if it is all online, make sure that it is a brick and mortar institution just in case something happens. And of course make sure it's accredited.

    I think it is OK. You will already have your RN license.
