R.N. to B.S.N. Nursing

Whether you are an experienced RN with years of nursing practice or a newly associate degree graduate, hospitals are now requiring that you complete your BSN in 3-5 years.  With the Institute of Medicine calling for 80% of the nursing workforce to hold at least a bachelor’s degree by 2020, moving to prepare nurses at this has become a national priority. If you already have an associate’s degree, this is the program for you. The program is designed for registered nurses with an associate’s degree from an accredited college or university. You return to school and complete a bachelor’s of science in nursing degree as you work full time. All of your books and materials are included in your tuition and will be brought to the classroom for you. To enroll you must have an active Indiana or Michigan nursing license. Clinical hours are mostly completed in your place of employment.
