RN to BSN Programs
RN to BSN Program Details
The best way to stay competitive in the nursing field is to keep strengthening your credentials. At Widener, our hybrid RN to BSN program helps working nurses bridge the gap quickly and effectively. As a full-time student, you can have your BSN degree in as little as one year.
There are no clinicals in our RN to BSN program. We understand that you show up to clinical every time you report for work, and that it counts toward your education in nursing. You'll also be able to apply what you're learning as you go. Instead of clinicals, students complete guided projects.
Our hybrid program allows you the freedom of taking online courses while also giving you the benefit of meeting your teachers and classmates face-to-face. As an RN to BSN student, you'll have access to all the resources that go along with being a traditional Widener student. In addition, only two of the program's required courses last 14 weeks— all other classes in the curriculum are completed in half that time.
RN to MSN Program Details
Registered nurses prepared with an associate's degree or diploma who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field of study — such as history, science, or other disciplines — are eligible to bridge to the master of science in nursing (MSN) program with the completion of three undergraduate nursing courses.
RN to MSN students apply for admission to the graduate program while completing undergraduate courses. The student selects an advanced practice specialty role as either family nurse practitioner or as a clinical nurse specialist in the area of adult health/gerontology or adult health/gerontology with a subspecialty in emergency/critical care. This is an excellent option for RN’s wishing to accelerate their progression toward completion of a master’s degree in nursing.
