RN-to-BSN Degree Completion
Welcome to the RN to BSN Completion webpage. This is the place to find information about completing your Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
If you are wondering whether or not you should pursue your BSN, here's what the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has to say.
"Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow 23 percent from 2006-2016, much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will be driven be technological advances in patient care, which permit a greater number of health problems to be treated, and by an increasing emphasis on preventive care." Competition for these jobs will occur due to the industry's relatively high wages and diversity of work environments. "Generally, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's [degree]."
So, now is the time to pursue the BSN degree and further your career opportunities!
Program Design: The instructional design of the curriculum is planned in such a way as to meet the needs of the working, adult learner. Web-based, on-line instructional technologies will be utilized in conjunction with a faculty-directed-independent-study instructional design in order to provide the flexibility needed for adult learner success. Clinical requirements are to be completed under the supervision of an approved preceptor.
Program Options: Students have the opportunity to complete the course requirements as either full-time or part-time dependent upon their individual needs. The completion program can be completed in a minimum of 3-4 full-time semesters. Part-time options are available. Program requirements must be completed within seven (7) years.
