Whether you are just starting to think about getting your nursing degree, or it’s been years since you’ve been in school - taking your general education courses online is a flexible and cost effective way to get the credits you need for your nursing degree program.

Here’s why:

1 - You can decide whether nursing is the path for you in a low-risk environment. Practically speaking, this means that if at first you don’t succeed - you can afford to try again. You can go at your own pace or if you need to retake a course online, you can do so at a low-cost without taking on student debt.
