The Online RN BS

The Online RN BS program plan is designed to facilitate educational mobility for those registered nurses who wish to earn the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing.  The RN-BS program is 100% online.  Two of the courses (NURS 4614 & NURS 4823) contain nontraditional clinical components that are accomplished through a combination of class projects and a clinical evidence based capstone in collaboration with a preceptor. 

The upper division courses can be completed in one calendar year of full-time study, although many students elect to complete the program on a part-time basis.
