Online classes are ideal for students who are self-motivated or familiar with the content area. We encourage future nursing students, persons who are previously licensed in other states, and those with healthcare experience to take our online courses.  Even though the course is online, our instructors are available to help you succeed.  However,  you must be an excellent self-learner and self-motivated to pass an online class.
