Because of both the shortage of nurses in America and the explosion of online technology, there are now more RN online degrees than ever before. In the hopes of encouraging people to get into nursing, schools are offering exclusively online programs to make studying for an RN or other nursing certification easier and more flexible.
The only hurdle to online RN programs is the clinical requirement, which still must be completed in a face-to-face situation at a medical facility. With the shortage of nurses not ending anytime soon, and the greater leaps in technology available every year, the number of online nursing programs will probably continue to grow and attract more and more students.
