College of Nursing
Innovative Education Meets Real-World Care.
Nursing careers are expected to grow as much as 15% over the next decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Roseman University’s College of Nursing provides real-world training and applications in a variety of programs to prepare professionals for an exciting and rewarding career in nursing. Our options include a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Master of Science in Nursing/Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN/FNP) for nursing professionals, an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) either on-campus or through a hybrid-online program, a Veteran to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (VBSN) Pathway for those who have served in the military, and a Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN).
For those seeking an entry-level career in nursing, our accelerated BSN programs prepare students for contributing to various areas in the healthcare industry. Students must first meet specific prerequisites to apply to the program and take a pre-admission test also known as the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). Our accelerated on-campus and hybrid online BSN programs are available for students who are looking to complete their studies sooner. By the completion of the program, which takes around 18 months for the on-campus program and 16 months for the hybrid online program, graduates can assume the legal, professional, and ethical responsibilities that are part of the Nurse Practice Act and officially become a nurse after successfully passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
Students who have served in the military and received a general or honorable discharge may qualify for the VBSN pathway. Roseman’s Veteran to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (VBSN) admissions pathway offers Veteran students the opportunity for transfer of military experiential credit for applicable prerequisites and/or identified nursing courses. The VBSN pathway maintains the highest academic standards, quality clinical experiences, and NCLEX pass rates, offered through Roseman’s 18-month BSN and 16-month ABSN programs.
The RN to BSN program is structured to support working nurses in completing their baccalaureate nursing education while continuing their day-to-day responsibilities. The program offers ADN-trained nurses the opportunity to expand their clinical and theoretical skills and knowledge, so they are better positioned to advance in the profession.
The Master of Science in Nursing/Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN/FNP) graduate program focuses on expanding students’ knowledge further through practical primary care to patients of all ages. Courses cover such topics as pathophysiology, pharmacotherapeutics, family practice management, and didactic and clinical coursework in pediatric and adult-gerontology. In addition to education in the classroom, students must also complete a predetermined number of clinical hours. This course of study is beneficial to those who are looking for a professional career as a nurse practitioner.
The 23-month full-time asynchronous online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is a clinical focused program designed to prepare advanced practice registered nurses at the highest level of nursing practice. The DNP is a terminal degree within the profession of nursing that prepares advanced practice registered nurses for the complex and rapidly changing healthcare environment. Roseman University’s DNP block curriculum builds on the traditional MSN education received as an advanced practice registered nurse, with a focus on evidenced-based care, quality improvement, safety, informatics, ethics, systems leadership, and access to care for populations. Graduates of this program will be prepared to be leaders within the healthcare field, assuring the delivery of safe and quality care by filling a growing need for highly skilled advanced practice registered nurses.
