    There are several online RN programs, but she still can't do them. To be eligible to sit for the NCLEX you have to graduate from an accredited program. To be accredited, a BSN program must include clinical hours. While these vary by program, that is typically three hours of clinical time for every hour of classroom time. It is not possible to meet these requirements while still working a full-time active duty schedule. The same reason she can't do in-class coursework is why she can't do clinicals -- they can't interfere with your duty schedule. 

    If she is already an LPN and in the military, she should apply for the nursing program within her respective branch; e.g., Army AMEDD, Air Force NECP, or Navy MECP. These are quite difficult to get into as they are highly competitive, but that's really about the only way to obtain a BSN while on active duty.

    She'd still have to do her clinicals on site not online.
