The online Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) degree provides a generalist’s nursing background. This program is very flexible, with full-time, part-time, and accelerated options available. The curriculum introduces the foundational systems of quality care and patient safety. Classwork covers subjects such as health assessment, complex health problems, and ethical issues in nursing.
Classes are offered both synchronously and asynchronously. Clinical experiences may be completed in your own state, without having to travel.
As an add on to this degree, students may also elect to pursue the School Nurse Program. This program prepares you to serve as a school nurse in K-12 institutions, acting as a first responder, engaging in public health function, and promoting community health.
