School of Nursing and Health Sciences

Department of Nursing: BSN

The RN to BSN Program is for those with existing Registered Nurse status interested in completing their baccalaureate degree online.

Nursing - R.N. to B.S.N.

The RN to BSN Program of the nursing program is designed to provide the educational opportunity for the RN who has an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) to complete the requirements to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN).

Nurses commonly return to school to pursue a BSN to enhance their education and prepare for additional career opportunities. Because students are already RNs, the emphasis is less on clinical bedside care and more on leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, and population-level nursing care.

Nurses often seek a BSN as a stepping stone to graduate school as they pursue careers as nurse practitioners, midwives, anesthetists, administrators, or educators. The RN to BSN track is individualized to each student’s career goals.
