Why Choose the RN-to-BSN Bridge Program?

Nightingale College’s RN-to-BSN Bridge Program is designed for working professionals who want to elevate healthcare. The aim of the Program is to advance your nursing skills and improve the healthcare delivery of your employer. Nightingale College enrolls all qualified candidates into the next available semester, and the Program can be completed in 3 semesters or 12 months. During these 12 months it is expected that learners apply what is being taught at work on a daily basis. There are no lab requirements, and the required clinical hours are dedicated to the Community Health and Capstone Projects that improve community health and patient care. Learners will complete these projects that will help them stand out as an ‘agent of health’ for their organization. The College’s RN-to-BSN Bridge Program should not be considered “just another online BSN program.” Here at Nightingale, every degree matters and classes are designed to stretch and elevate the patient care provided.
