The RN/BSN curriculum focuses on the further professional education of the associate or diploma prepared nurse. The program is heavily online with some on-site experiences that may be required. Some electives are offered on-campus in a classroom; all Nursing requirements are offered only through online format. Students may take RN/BSN curriculum at their own pace or in an organized 18-month completion plan, as agreed upon with the Asst. Dean of Nursing.
