Who Can Apply for Online Nursing Degrees?
Online nursing degrees are college degrees in the
field of healthcare and nursing that are obtained via the
Internet. Online nursing degrees are great ways for registered
nurses to further their careers without having to take a leave
of absence from their jobs.
There are two main types of online nursing degrees.
The first is a bachelor's of science degree in nursing. This
type of degree is for individuals who are already a registered
nurse but who wish to further their nursing career. These
degrees also require that the student participate in on-site lab
rotations and clinicals. The rest of the course work can be
completed entirely online.
The second type of degree is a masters degree. These degrees
require that the student first have a bachelors degree in
nursing and at least three years work experience in the nursing
While some online nursing degrees require some onsite work, this
work can sometimes be completed at the healthcare environment
that you are currently employed in, for example, the clinical
rotation can be completed as part of your regular job. Many
registered nurses pursue online nursing degrees to further their
education. These degrees can be obtained in such specialties as
healthcare management, human resources and business management.
These qualifications will allow nurses to compete for jobs in
the administration side of healthcare. Nurses with a master's
degree can become hospital administrators or nursing staff
Most online degrees require at least two years of additional
study. This time can be shortened if an individual has prior
college credit to transfer or numerous years of relevant work
If you are interested in obtaining one of the online nursing
degrees but you have not received your registered nurses degree
as of yet, you can first obtain this degree through a vocational
school in your area and then go on to further your career
through the Internet.
