Online RN to BSN

Nursing is both an art and a science based upon a commitment to best practices, a culture of compassion, and a connection to individuals, their families, and the communities within which they live. Delivering high quality nursing care is contingent upon mastering the application of intellectually rigorous nursing knowledge.

Candidates are advised to submit applications as soon as possible. Applicants to our bachelor of science in nursing (RN to BSN) program must:

  • Be an active registered nurse (RN)
  • Hold an Associate of Science in Nursing or diploma in nursing from a regionally-accredited program
  • New graduates from associate degrees or diploma programs must pass the NCLEX-RN® no later than at the completion of their first semester of classes
  • Complete a criminal background check

The bachelor of science in nursing is designed to meet the individual needs of an employed registered nurse as well as to meet the societal need for a better educated nursing workforce. This program prepares registered nurses with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to remain competitive in an ever-changing healthcare system.
