RN to BSN Program Details
The Minot State University RN to BSN online nursing program is for the registered nurse (RN) who wishes to pursue a baccalaureate degree in nursing. A total of 128 credits are needed to complete the BSN. These credits meet both Minot State University and the Department of Nursing requirements.
The RN to BSN program is available in a flexible and convenient online format, with one designated clinical course. Clinical experiences are arranged to be completed in your local area under the direction of qualified faculty.
Minot State University’s RN to BSN online program is available for part time or full time students. Full time enrollment generally allows the RN to complete the curriculum in a minimum of 15 - 18 months. The time needed to complete the program is determined by how much of the required course work is completed at the time of admission.
The RN to BSN online program builds upon prior learning and experiences. Each course is designed to provide the RN with advanced knowledge in nursing concepts and principles. This new knowledge is directly related to the professional nurse’s roles and responsibilities regarding individuals, families and the community.
