What Employers Think About Your Online Nursing Degree

by | Mar 29, 2017 | Nurse Education | 0 comments


The stigma towards online degrees has improved in recent years. There was a time when people would look down on these degrees as being worth as much as the paper they were printed on. The problem is that originally, most online schools would give you the degree essentially for clicking a few buttons each week and calling it good.

With more major colleges discovering that online classes are highly effective, the views have changed. More employers realize that those who are working full time don’t have the ability to do traditional hours in a classroom. Online learning allows students to get the same information and to do the same homework, and earn a degree that is done on their own time.

Employers also understand we are now in the digital age. This is a time when you have Skype video to attend classes, from anywhere in the world. You can e-mail an instructor and receive real time responses. It’s unlike the internet of a decade ago and with more knowledge at your fingertips than ever before, the degrees people are getting are exciting and viewed as strategic and a wise use of the busy individual’s life.

Because more people in nursing are getting their degrees online, and proving how effective they are in the clinical setting, many companies aren’t even asking the format that a person received a degree in any longer. They ensure you are licensed and have a degree. That gives them the understanding that you can do the job and they are more than willing to work with you.

This is especially the case since many hospitals and doctor’s offices now provide online nursing programs with onsite clinical time that students can complete. After all, there are elements of the course of study that a nursing student must still attend to and handle. The same academic standards are in place for these online nursing programs, so the employer you speak with will embrace your online nursing degree as another important degree option for those who want to break into nursing.

You’ll find that this is one of the best ways to get your degree while working full time and there won’t be any issues with employers accepting the online degree. So take full advantage of the process and make sure you enroll now in the first set of courses that will help to transform your life.
