hello, I am looking to become a RN, I live in Florida and I am a flight attendant. I have a BA in Political Science and would like to be advised on a good accredited program that would allow me to take a lot of classes online. Any suggestions? Many thanks!

We've published two great articles on this hot topic:

Become an RN: How to Choose an Online Nursing Degree
Online Accelerated BSN Programs

There are three educational paths you can take to become a nurse:

  • Earn a diploma from an approved nursing program
  • Earn a bachelor’s of science in nursing degree (BSN)
  • Complete an associate degree in nursing (ADN)


Since you are not already a RN, you'll want to look for a certificate/diploma or associate degree program (most BSN programs require the RN designation).
