The RN to BS Option is designed for graduates of associate degree nursing programs and diploma programs. The Option is offered in a convenient on-line format to accommodate the needs of working RNs. The Option length is typically four semesters, though students may choose to complete courses at a slower progress (based on course availability). Students are admitted to the Option once each year for the fall semester.
Nursing is the protection, promotion and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities and populations.
Professional nurses practice in a variety of settings such as hospitals, public health departments, schools, outpatient clinics, and home health and mental health agencies. The professional nurse works in partnership with other health care professionals in applying evidence-based knowledge combined with caring and compassion to provide quality care.
