    Online RN to BSN Nursing Program

    Online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree Completion Option (RN to BSN)

    The RN to BSN program option is designed to assist graduates to achieve The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (AACN, 2008).
