Experiential Learning

All accredited RN-to-BSN programs, including those 100% online, are required to have some practice time of which some is live. At Seminole State College, the Community and Public Health course includes online virtual simulations. Also, during the final semester Capstone course, students will have experiential learning activities and a patient or community teaching project. These Capstone assignments include a live windshield survey in the student’s community and presenting the teaching project to a live audience, as well as partnership work with another nurse with a BSN or higher degree.

Students must submit official transcripts to the College.
