The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed to prepare graduates of Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) programs, who already hold a Registered Nursing (RN) license, with additional skills in management, leadership, theory, and research to succeed within the nursing profession. BSN graduates will be qualified for supervisory jobs such as nurse managers and other leadership roles. They will also be qualified to pursue a master’s degree that would prepare them for career advancement. Courses are taught online to accommodate working students, with two (2) one-credit hour practicum courses that students may spend a certain number of hours at a facility. Students may progress at their own pace and may complete the required 120 college credit hours in three semesters or more, depending on transfer and articulation credits.
