Online RN-BSN Curriculum

We customize your curriculum. You personalize patient care.

Our online RN-BSN program is designed to teach you how to deliver the services that can best address your patients’ needs. The program is structured for registered nurses who have already earned a diploma in nursing or an associate degree in nursing, and is uniquely customizable to your background.

You can complete this program in as few as two years, so if you have plans to further your nursing education past the BSN level, you can.

With our RN-BSN, you can gain the skills to:

  • Adapt to changes in bedside delivery that are driven by advances in technology
  • Approach patient care with moral reasoning and ethical integrity
  • Understand the importance of qualitative and quantitative research in nursing practice
  • Integrate culturally congruent care for patients of diverse populations
  • Evaluate the relationship between patient characteristics and nursing care to influence patient outcomes
