I graduated from TWU's BSN program and want to get my Master's in Nursing Education so I can teach in a nursing program. I know I can call the school and get this information (and plan to), I just want to hear from people who have actually been in the program...

How did you like it? What was the program like? Did you have normal semesters, or did they break it down and you take a class at a time...usually a new class every 6-8 weeks or so? Were there exams, or just papers and discussion boards.

Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

Online nursing programs are mostly MSN's designed for the working RN. There is very little point in clinicals for experienced, working RN's. At least the reputable, good online programs are geared to RN's that already have a BSN.

Think of it more like getting a teaching degree. I have already done all my clinicals in my BSN program.

And yes there are online nursing degrees...University of Phoenix has one, and there are several online Nurse Practitioner programs. You still have to do the clinical parts of them...you just have to find the institution and the instructors in your area.

Do you know of the forum: allnurses: A Nursing Community for Nurses

I think they will be able to help you a bit more. Good Luck!
