    I have searched everywhere online, but I can't find an answer as to whether or not Pennsylvania accepts online nursing degrees. So, well, does anyone know? Any information would be appreciated! It's driving me insane that I can't find anything. I'm probably just being goofy, but I can't find it for the life of me, lol.

    Have you checked with your state nursing board? Like any other college, the school would have to be licensed and/or accredited by the state board of higher education (or its equivalent) in Pennsylvania. The school itself should be able to tell you, and then you should be able to verify with the credentialing body.

    I sent an email to the PA state nursing board. I asked them where to find online schools if it is accepted by PA law. At least I know that I'm on the right track though, lol.

    Online nursing schools have their classwork online, you still have to do your clinicals in a clinical setting.
