The RN to BSN Program is a specialized program of study designed specifically for the RN with an Associate Degree or Diploma in Nursing. Based on principles of adult education and focusing on the skills and experiences nurses bring to the educational setting the RN to BSN program includes required general education coursework and nursing courses designed and delivered for RNís only.

Why Should I Get a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)?
A BSN provides a broad liberal and professional education that builds upon the competencies and knowledge achieved in previous nursing education and practice. A BSN degree enhances your marketability and mobility and allows for full utilization of your talents and professional skills. A BSN also prepares you for advanced nursing education in areas such as Nurse Anesthesia, Public Health Nursing and Nursing Administration and for roles as Nurse Practitioner or Clinical Nurse Specialist.
