Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Bachelor's Degree

Want to move as quickly as possible to become a registered nurse (RN) with your BSN degree? Our CCNE-accredited4 Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is designed to help every nurse at every level finish as quickly as possible.

We offer three program entry tracks:

  • BSN Standard Degree: for those without a degree who wish to become a BSN RN as quickly as possible.
    • For those who are already a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and ready to pursue RN licensure, the LPN to RN Bridge allows you finish your BSN degree sooner.
  • BSN Second Degree: for those with a Bachelor’s who want to make a career change into nursing.
  • RN to BSN: for currently licensed RNs with an Associate’s degree in Nursing (ADN) who are ready to reach the next level online.

With eight start dates a year, you can get started soon. And once you've successfully completed your admission requirements, you're admitted directly into the BSN program. There is no need to apply twice.
