Online nursing degree programs create opportunities for current and aspiring nurses who don't have the flexibility to attend a campus-based program to pursue a nursing education. As the demand for nurses in the U.S. continues to grow, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics projections, online programs can help train nurses who can meet that need.

How do online nursing programs work?

Online nursing programs allow students to take coursework via the Internet, and various programs make use of a range of technologies and formats, including Web chat, video lectures and discussion forums. Courses mirror what you would study in a classroom and include topics such as nursing theory, anatomy, chemistry and ethics.

Programs for first-time nurses almost always require clinical hours, and online degree programs should help students make arrangements at a local facility to complete those requirements. Clinical rotations should include hospital experience, and some schools include experience at places such as long-term care facilities or public health clinics.

Bridge programs for already licensed nurses such as an RN-to-MSN or ADN-to-BSN program often do not require clinical hours, and some may be completed entirely online. By contrast, LPN or associate degree in nursing programs are generally geared toward entry-level nurses and require clinical experience.

Choosing an online nursing degree program

The American Journal of Nursing recommends students evaluating online nursing programs check with their state board of nursing to ensure the program meets state licensing requirement. You should also verify that the school is accredited and that faculty have a minimum of a master's degree in nursing. Ask about the clinical requirements and verify that they are rigorous enough to give you the experience hiring managers are looking for. If possible, you can also arrange to speak to current and former students or employers in your area to learn about their experiences with your program.

Online nursing programs can help students get the training they need to enter the nursing workforce, without giving up a current job or relocating to a campus program. You can browse the schools below and request information from those that interest you.
