Nurses serve the fundamental healthcare needs of all people. As the nursing profession continues to grow in size and scope, employers want to hire nurses with at least a bachelor's degree. The Veterans R.N. to B.S.N. program at Nova Southeastern University offers you a convenient pathway to expand your skillset, enabling you to utilize the leadership skills that you earned in the military.
Adjusting to civilian life is demanding and can understandably be challenging, even for those who have been trained to withstand anything. Each case is different, and some people need more time than others. That is why our Veterans program has been designed to let you complete it at your own pace. We are here to provide you with the guidance you need to make the best decision for you and your family. Our experienced faculty will provide you with the one on one attention you deserve, and can help you complete the program in as few as 3 semesters.
What you'll study.
The Veterans R.N. to B.S.N. curriculum covers various facets of healthcare, including business, leadership, policy, and community service. NSU's on-site or online courses will build on the experience you’ve acquired as an R.N., helping you grow as a civilian nursing leader and preparing you for the next stage in your career.
As the nursing profession continues to evolve, you will want to become better informed by engaging in new, transformational nursing research that can elevate your practice. Taking time to continue your education will empower you to provide better care now, while opening the door to new, exciting roles in the future.
How you'll learn more.
Online courses and multiple on-site locations provide you with what you need, when and where you need it. Outside of the classroom, you will participate in local opportunities for health promotion and education that make a real difference in the community.
We understand that as one of our nation’s heroes, you deserve nothing less than the best. Dedicated and experienced faculty members make each class meaningful for you. The College of Nursing will provide you with the support you deserve to help you achieve your goals, and we highly encourage you to take advantage of NSU’s veteran support services.
Where it can take you.
A changing healthcare landscape means that opportunities for employment are widespread, both within and beyond traditional nursing settings.

If you choose to continue your nursing education beyond a B.S.N., applying to our R.N. to M.S.N. program will put you on the fast track to obtaining a master's degree.
