Nurses serve the fundamental healthcare needs of all people, and as the nursing profession continues to grow in size and scope, employers want to hire nurses with at least a bachelor's degree. The R.N. to B.S.N. program at Nova Southeastern University offers a convenient pathway to reach your potential.
Because you are already a professional registered nurse (R.N.), you have completed more than half of the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. Plus, our program is designed for busy, working nurses. Small class sizes and experienced faculty help you complete the R.N. to B.S.N. degree in as few as 4 semesters.
What you'll study.
The 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 help you grow as a leader and prepare you for stimulating, rewarding responsibilities.
As the nursing profession evolves under the new Affordable Care Act (ACA), you will want to become better informed and engage in new, transformational nursing research that can elevate your practice. Taking time to study the profession will empower you to provide better care now and to discover new, exciting roles in the future.
How you'll learn more.
Online courses and multiple on-site locations provide 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 for real people.
Dedicated and experienced faculty members make each R.N. to B.S.N. class meaningful.
Where it can take you.
A changing healthcare landscape means that opportunities for employment are widespread, both within and beyond traditional nursing settings. Demand is growing for nurses with at least the B.S.N. degree. The personal attention you’ll receive from our faculty will help you provide exceptional care now and discover exciting, new roles for your future. And if you choose to continue your nursing education beyond a B.S.N., you can do that here, too. You may also choose to apply for our R.N. to M.S.N. program and obtain a master's degree.
