About

If you are currently working as a registered nurse, take a strategic step and advance your career with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN). Our online RN to BSN and online RN to MSN programs are convenient and give you the ability to continue working while you earn your bachelor’s or master’s degree in nursing

Our 100% online RN to BSN degree is 30-credit hours and can be completed at a pace that works for you: 1 year for full-time study or 1.5 years for part-time study. With our six-week block schedule, you can take one or two classes at a time.

Our 100% online RN to MSN degree with tracks in Nurse Educator or Healthcare Leadership can be completed in 60 credit hours or 43 credit hours through our bridge program (for RNs who have an ADN and a bachelor’s degree in another discipline).
