RN to BSN Program Details
The RN to BSN option is designed for registered nurses (RNs) whose highest academic credential is an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree or a nursing diploma. Students must provide evidence of current nurse (RN) licensure in any state where the student is practicing for the purpose of completing clinical course requirements. Because the program is flexible—students can enter the program in the fall, spring, or summer, taking distance accessible courses—it is perfect for those who want to continue their nursing education while maintaining their current work and/or family responsibilities.
As a BSN student, you’ll learn current trends in health care and develop the knowledge and skills necessary to adapt to these trends through changing practice. With a comprehensive academic foundation in the sciences and humanities, you’ll be well-prepared to meet the current and future health needs of society.
Your studies will focus on the following areas:
Management of individuals/families coping with acute and chronic illness
Because this program builds on the courses you have already completed, you’ll also receive credit for many of the general education courses completed as part of your ASN or diploma program.
