Nursing (RN to BSN)
Our Online RN to BSN program prepares you to expand the scope of your patient care with courses focused on evidence-based practice, public health, and leadership. Classes are led by the same supportive, full-time faculty who teach in our esteemed on-campus programs. Expand your professional network, too, by engaging with classmates, other nurses from across the state (and sometimes beyond) who are taking the next step in their careers.
Point of Pride
The online RN to B.S.N. program is ranked as one of the Best Online Nursing Programs by U.S. News & World Report.
Why study Nursing (RN to BSN)?
The reasons our students have for obtaining their BSN differ—some are reconnecting with their love for learning, others are rediscovering their passion for nursing, and still others are seeking more tools to provide the best care for their patients. Whatever your reason may be, our online format is built to empower busy RNs to advance their education in a flexible, supportive environment.
