Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN). 

The Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN) is an online degree completion program for registered nurses seeking a bachelor’s degree. Nurses join together in a cohort to take the nursing major core classes. Courses are taken one at a time in sequence in a five week online format. The program is specifically designed for adult learners who want to combine academic study and career advancement with employment. Small class sizes, professional application, and colleague relationships encourage individualized learning and networking.
