There are some excellent universities who have developed online education programs in advanced practice nursing but for one reason or another, have chosen to require that applicants hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. These programs avoid the issues associated with bridging a RN lacking a BSN into a masters of nursing program. They are graduate degree programs from the start, and several of them are available in an accelerated format for nurses who can engage in full time study.
