Note: When it comes to choosing a school to attend try not to base your decision too heavily on the cost. Remember that some of the best schools you there are in fact schools that are affordable and that come at very reasonable prices. In addition a really expensive school will not necessarily be the best school that you could choose. It may in fact have a lower standard of education, but charges more because of its reputation or perhaps even because of the area in which it is located. Tuition is important, but it is not the most important factor for selection.
Loans and Scholarships

Accreditation

When you apply for an online school it is essential that you ensure that it is accredited. If it is not you will essentially be wasting your time and your money. Good schools are open about their accreditation and you will find this information easily on the website. Treat any school that does not openly give this information with suspicion.

Regis College is approved by the Board of Registration in Nursing of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.

Online Teaching Methods

Learning online can be difficult so it is important that you choose an online school that will allow you to learn as easily as possible. The college offers an internal student website which allows for a number of actions, such as:

  • Access to a variety of student services on and off campus
  • The complete Student Handbook
  • The Financial Aid Handbook
  • A web-based course management program
  • Communication among students and faculty and distribution of course materials and grades at home, school, or elsewhere

These are fairly good online teaching methods, and you will struggle to find another university that offers such good options in this regard.

Now that you have all of the information you should be in a better position to decide if an online LPN to RN program from Regis University is the right path for you to take or not. This is not a decision to be made lightly so ensure that you consider everything before making your final decision on the matter. Research all of your options carefully and ensure that you make the best choice possible because your choice at this stage of the game can significantly impact your future.
