Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN)
The online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) from Widener University is designed for registered nurses to meet the demands of an increasingly complex health care environment.
It builds on the strengths you already demonstrate as a licensed nurse, develops leadership skills, and expands your knowledge to deliver high-quality care.
With an increasing number of hospitals striving for Magnet status, the need for professional, baccalaureate-prepared nurses is becoming a job requirement. Obtaining your BSN will qualify you for far more nursing job opportunities and significantly higher salaries.
Widener's RN-BSN program is entirely-online, no on-site residencies are required and you can complete your BSN in as little as one year with qualifying credits or create a custom program plan and take one course at a time.
