Nursing (RN to BSN)

The Bellevue University Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) will prepare you for a broadened role in nursing and provide you with the critical performance skills needed for decision-making, leadership, management, and health promotion. In this online RN-BSN program, you will develop your skills as a professional nurse, learn the fundamentals of effective leadership, and gain a better understanding of the cultural, political, economic, and social issues that influence the delivery of healthcare and patient outcomes.

In the final two courses in the program, you will participate in a hands-on practicum. You will be able to partner with a preceptor to identify a nursing concern or issue, develop a plan to resolve the issue, implement, execute and evaluate the plan. Completing your BSN degree will keep you up to date with the rising level of education requirements for nursing and assist you with achieving your academic and professional goals. With a growing national demand for nurses, you'll have more job mobility and may be eligible for higher paying positions. View a detailed path to your BSN in our 2017 guide.
