RN to BSN Programs
RN to BSN Program Details
The RN to BSN online option allows a registered nurse who has either an associate degree or diploma in nursing to gain advanced placement in the BSN nursing major.
The Department recognizes prior knowledge and experience to promote advanced learning without repetition of nursing education and practice. Both nursing and University studies requirements can be completed totally online. Theoretical courses are designed to promote interactive experiences with a variety of faculty and other online students.
Upon completion of the program a Bachelor of Science degree is awarded. This degree combines liberal arts courses, through the School of University Studies with current nursing theory and practice. Nursing assessment, research, care of the frail, elderly, leadership and management and community health skills and personal development are taught.
BSN Program Details
The baccalaureate program is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and has full approval by the State of Missouri through the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
Upon completion of the program, you will have a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and the basic preparation for making application to take the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.
The baccalaureate nursing curriculum is designed to promote your professional growth in the field of nursing. In addition to expanding knowledge and developing technical skills, you will be challenged to think critically and to grow personally, either as a general student or as an RN returning for a baccalaureate degree. The learning activities planned for you will prepare you as a generalist in nursing, i.e., you will have the entry level baccalaureate skills necessary to function in any area of nursing practice.
