Nursing RN to BSN Program
Take Your Nursing Career to the Next Level
Currently there is increased demand for higher levels of education among registered nurses. Professional organizations and employers agree that more-credentialed nurses equate to better patient outcomes.
Through Urbana University’s RN-BSN program, you can earn a Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)-accredited nursing degree around your schedule by taking classes one night a week. Courses are offered online, onsite at partner hospitals or a combination of both.
What you’ll LEARN:
Because Urbana’s RN-BSN program is designed for registered nurses, you’ll get credit for the nursing courses you completed as part of your nursing diploma or associate degree that led to your licensure. Although you will need to fulfil the general education credits in communications, math/science, humanities and social science, you begin taking upper division nursing courses right away.
Courses – taught onsite at hospitals – will enrich your knowledge of nursing theory, concepts and skills and you will learn from faculty with diverse experiences. The nursing curriculum remains current with the ever-changing healthcare industry and features opportunities for community-based learning that enable you to provide better care and better leadership.
