Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

The RN to BSN program, delivered 100% online, is designed for active and unencumbered licensed registered nurses. This program expands clinical skills for registered nurses through a foundation of the liberal arts, sciences, and humanities as well as developing stronger research abilities, and improving communication techniques. A BSN degree is essential if you plan to move away from basic clinical care and transition into administration or teaching.

RN to BSN majors are expected to follow the three-quarter-time degree plan as advised by the Nursing Department, which includes satisfying the pre-requisites and co-requisite requirements of each course.  It is not guaranteed that all courses in the program will be available to the student should they not follow the degree plan.
