RN to BSN Program

The mission of the RN to BSN Program is to support educational mobility and broaden previous education by focusing on the importance of our program values. Our vision is to promote professionalism and leadership development through an emphasis on empowerment and empathy.


In addition to general education requirements, we have 8 required nursing courses for students to complete for their BSN.  Nursing in Rural America, Leadership, and Professional Practice Seminar are the 3 courses that students’ feedback is present and applicable to their everyday practice.


Our philosophy of caring and focus on the adult learner has allowed us to develop a unique program that does not require campus attendance.

How long will it take to complete my BSN?

Most courses are 8 weeks in length. If general education courses and elective requirements are met, the program can be completed in two semesters if attending full-time or four semesters if attending part-time.
