Bachelor of Science, Nursing - RN to BS
About the Program
The RN-BS program is carefully designed to enhance your nursing skills, to advance your professional career, and to positively impact your academic progression by preparing you for graduate studies. We launched our online RN-BS track in 2008 and are proud to celebrate the graduation of over 1000 registered nurses from our program.
As a student who has successfully completed at least one semester in a regionally accredited associate degree program, you can begin taking a few classes to get a head start on your bachelor’s in nursing degree. Whether you choose to dual enroll, or wait until you complete the RN program and sit for NCLEX, your degree requirements remain the same.
