Taking online courses for nursing?

By | December 9, 2015

Is there a college that I’m able to take online courses for nursing? At the moment, my schedule isn’t going to allow me to go to college due to family issues, but I thought maybe taking online courses to get a head start with the course, and then when I’m able to finish it out then go to a college that will let me transfer my credits so I can train in a hospital. Are there any out there, or all they all on campus classes?

    You cannot become a nurse by taking online classes. That’s not the way it works. What you can do is take your general ed classes online, since most community colleges and state universities offer some courses online (generally it would be things like English Comp, Psycology, Sociology, Algebra, Communication, etc). You would need to take your lab sciences (Chemistry, Anatomy/Physiology, Microbiology, etc) on campus and your nursing classes must be taken there, too. Also, most community colleges have those general ed and science classes in the evenings and on weekends, so that’s something to consider, as well.

    Finally, whatever route you decide on, you must make sure that your college is accredited by at least one of the following two agencies:

    Or
