RN to BSN Programs
RN to BSN Program Details
Registered nurses enter Adelphi with a foundation of professional knowledge and skill. This R.N. to B.S. program of study aims to deepen their expertise with study in the liberal arts and sciences and to extend it to encompass health promotion, long-term care, research, advocacy, teaching, change, and management.
The undergraduate program for registered nurses is designed to accommodate the schedules of working nurses and allow students to enroll full time but in general to attend classes only one day per week. The curriculum of the current R.N. to B.S. program is under review for change.
BSN Program Details
The basic nursing curriculum consists of a planned progression of courses that build upon previous knowledge and develop skills at increasing levels of competence. The lower-division nursing and the science courses are prerequisite to the junior-level nursing courses. Throughout the Bachelor of Science in nursing curriculum, concepts relating to the promotion of health, care during illness, and long-term care are developed. Also emphasized are the nurse’s roles in research, advocacy, teaching, change, and management.
Note: A new curriculum was implemented in the academic year 2009-2010. All students entering as freshman starting Fall 2009 are in this new curriculum pattern. Transfer students who enter Fall 2010 with all prerequisites and who plan to go full-time will be in the old curriculum; transfer students without all prerequisites or those who plan to be part-time will be in the new curriculum. All students must finish the old curriculum by December 2012. After that point, extra credits, time, and money will be required for graduation. The first graduates of the new curriculum will be spring 2013.
