I think nursing is a very hands on career that is better learned as hands on.

I don't think nursing and a few other careers should be taught online.

If you find one online you need to check and make sure that it is accredited. Also, it wouldn't be fully online because you will have to do clinicals

 I don't know about Arkansas but I just found one in Oklahoma, Rosestate, that has an online course. You still have clinicals twice a week and have to go to the school to take exams but the bulk of it is online. That's what I will be doing. :) Hopefully you have something like that nearby. I totally understand your dilemma.

How would you get your clinical hours in?

I don't see how a nursing degree could be done online. A BSN, sure, but half of the nursing program to be an RN is usually practicals and required time spent in a healthcare setting (there is a word for that but I am having flatulence of the brain).

ETA: Clinicals is the word I am looking for, holy crap...

I don't feel like online college is really college. IMO

 Some community colleges allow you take courses online but you still have to do clinicals. I don't think any do everything online, I don't see how they could because like you said you have to have so many hours of clinicals.
