Expand your skills and enhance your career

RNs can earn a bachelor's degree to expand their career options through a variety of classes and application experiences. The RN-BSN is specially designed to meet the needs of the working RN. Small class sizes allow for RN students to receive consistent, personal attention toward their success. The RN-BSN program can be completed in as little as 16 months.

The RN-BSN graduate has a multitude of career advancement and enhancement opportunities such as:

  • Expanded leadership roles: Clinical Manager, Clinical Educator, Project Manager
  • Marketability across specialties: Inpatient, outpatient, homecare services, public health
  • Advanced practice roles: The BSN is the natural "next-step" for RNs wishing to complete an APRN degree in the future in becoming a Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Administrator, or Nurse Educator
