The baccalaureate online completion program is for licensed Registered Nurses who have earned an associate's degree in Nursing.
The BSN Program requires completion of 124 credits. Applicants may transfer up to 92 credits from their associate degree programs and other college-level courses completed. The core BSN classes contributes 32 credits. With transferred credits, it takes two years of full-time study to be awarded the BS in Nursing.
The BSN student will be encouraged to integrate prior learning as they expand their skillset and knowledge of nursing.
Having established career goals and having refined their clinical competency, RNs can now further their education, which will strengthen their professional image, challenge their scholastic abilities, and prepare them for graduate school as desired.
