Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN)
Ball State University

Program Details

Ball State University offers an online Bachelor of Science in Nursing. 

The online RN to BSN program is designed with the working nurse in mind. Classes are held asynchronously, which means that you can study on your own schedule. At the same time, Ball State makes sure you won’t go through your academic journey alone: you will have the support of peers, faculty, and advisors. 

The curriculum integrates physical, psychosocial, and nursing science with the fine arts and humanities for a balanced, holistic education. Nursing coursework covers topics such as health assessment, health science research, community health, applied nursing concepts, and more. 
If the field you are studying requires professional licensure, make sure you are aware of license requirements within the state in which you wish to work.
