The RN-to-BSN Program curriculum is designed to challenge nurses to reach advanced levels of critical thinking, problem solving, and leadership, while implementing what is being learned on a day-to-day basis at work. The RN-to-BSN Program is a distance program, meaning all didactic instruction is delivered via online learning modalities.
The Program allows registered nurses to further their education in order to develop skills and reasoning advanced from an ADN competency level. As employers are divulging the benefits of having BSN-prepared bedside nurses, it is a necessity for RNs to continue their education in order to provide quality patient safety and care in diverse areas of care and environments.
A total of 120 semester credits are required for graduation, consisting of 24 semester credits of upper-division nursing coursework. Learners complete the didactic section of the program online, eliminating the need to travel to a location for class.
