Background: Evaluation of our school's self-study data pointed to the need to offer creative distance learning options for students in the registered nurse to bachelor of science (RN to BS) program. Method: Selected courses in the RN to BS curriculum were offered to students in both the traditional classroom and via an online format. Results: End-of-course evaluations and course grades showed no significant difference between the learning experiences of the traditional classroom students compared with those of the online students. Conclusion: This successful pilot encouraged our school to migrate the curriculum of a traditional RN to BS program to an online format.
