RN to BSN Program Details
The RN-BSN degree program is designed for registered nurses. Full-time RN-BSN students can earn their degree in two years. Many RN-BSN students attend part-time, allowing them to work around family and professional responsibilities. The program emphasizes the nurse's role for health promotion, prevention, restoration, and maintenance with clients, family, and client groups in community health settings.
The nursing major offers flexible career options in the health care field. RN-BSN graduates accept positions in nursing management, government and military installations, community health, wellness centers, or assume more responsibility and independence in their existing practice roles.
