Despite being one of the more well known community colleges, Bishop really doesn't have too many online classes and if you are a Nursing student, no online classes (terrible for someone who wishes to return for RN bridge). Hopefully, Bishop will take some direction from some of the Northern Alabama Community College Programs who actually do offer hybrid courses. Also if you work full time be prepared to drop hours, or quit because Bishop State tends to not want to work with your schedule in any way.
I was in the Nursing program and if you pass you will have no trouble with NCLEX, mostly because you have just taken place in an independent study program. Staff has changed since being there, but based on my experience most did not care and would not work with you; I not stating that in terms of changing grades, ex. but more in terms of something like, letting you into a typical lecture just a few minutes later (do to you working). There were no online hybrid courses, like the ones in northern Alabama nursing programs. Hopefully with the current COVID-19 response they will look into it.
