You can't earn a nursing degree without putting in some clinical hours--and with good reason. You wouldn't want new doctors to graduate without ever setting foot in a hospital, and it's the same with nurses--the hands-on experience is just too important to skip. Most RN-to-BSN programs require at least a few clinical classes, even in online schools.

This can present a problem for students who are looking for a flexible way to earn a nursing degree. Online programs generally have their written and classroom components entirely online, but students are required to show up for some clinical time. However, nursing programs that are completely online will usually arrange to have you complete your clinical training with a health facility in your area.
