RN to BSN Program Details
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) degree is an online completion program designed for registered nurses (RNs) who have graduated from either an associate degree or diploma program and who desire to expand their knowledge in the nursing profession.
In a rapidly changing healthcare environment, the RN-BSN degree enables the practicing registered nurse a greater opportunity for employment, increased responsibility, and career progression.
Earning your RN-BSN opens the door for professional certification in a nursing specialty such as nurse practitioner, nurse educator, nurse anesthetist, clinical nurse specialist, or administration. An RN-BSN degree also provides a foundation for graduate level education and the future pursuit of doctorate level education.
Faculty work closely with students in courses focusing on holistic nursing, community health, health policy, informatics, leadership, and administration providing the knowledge to remain successful healthcare providers and leaders in today's healthcare workplace.
