How Would an Online Nursing Degree Work?

May 9th, 2007 · No Comments

I am curious how this online nursing degree program would work. If you read the article in detail, you get the idea that you can even get an MBA for nursing. The reason I am a little puzzled is that I can’t think of how such a person-oriented, physical skill-centric job can be taught using only online methods. The page lists that they use multimedia and interactive technologies, but I’d love to know if it actually works.

It does seem like the programs are for nurses with diplomas seeking to get a higher-level degree to advance their careers:

Registered Nurses with an associate degree or diploma certificate can build on their education and experience to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). RNs without a formal nursing degree may also qualify to enter programs leading to a BSN or Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). You’ll also find Master’s programs in specialties such as Integrative Health Care and Health Care Education.

This kind of tags onto the Bachelors in Gaming I wrote about earlier. The universities offering the program include the Phoenix University, which I see ads for almost everywhere, and a few others. a couple of days ago, in Family Guy, I heard this joke where one construction worker tells the other, “My son got into DeVry University,” and the other goes, “Oh yeah? What did you have to do? Hold the door open?” :)
