The Division of Nursing offers an RN-BSN completion program that acknowledges the experience and needs of working professionals. The program consists of 30 credits of nursing coursework designed to broaden RNs knowledge and skills related to healthcare informatics, health promotion for vulnerable populations, evidence-based practice, leadership, and interprofessional collaboration. Registered nurses who have completed associate degree programs are admitted as transfer students with advanced standing. RNs may transfer up to 90 credits of coursework; additional non-nursing coursework may be required to complete the 120 credit undergraduate program.
Blended and online, 7-week courses. In the 6 blended courses, the on-site class meets one evening per week for 7 weeks with the balance of coursework completed online during that time through Blackboard, our learning management system. Four courses are fully online utilizing Blackboard.
This program is designed to be cohort-based with a new cohort beginning each fall. The 30 credits of nursing coursework may be completed in 15 months (fall, spring, summer, fall). Additional time may be needed to complete the program for students who enter the program with less than 90 credits.
