Our RN to BSN program allows nurses the opportunity to continue their education through flexible and convenient programs, without repeating courses and experiences commonly completed as part of a basic associate degree or diploma nursing program.

The RN to BSN program is designed for the busy professional and can be completed in as little as five consecutive terms. To make the program flexible for all students, courses are available 100% online. 

General education requirements are met through a strong liberal arts component, including studies beyond the sciences. The RN to BSN curriculum focuses on preparing nurses to care for the increasingly complex needs of patients and populations. Nursing courses explore such concepts as health assessment, population health, nursing research and evidence-based practice, and leadership, with community-based independent clinical activities.
