Roseman University College of Nursing Adds 9-month RN to BSN Program
Roseman University College of Nursing is pleased to announce that it has expanded its programmatic offerings to include a 9-month RN to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program. The program, now enrolling for classes starting in September, is structured to support working nurses in completing their baccalaureate nursing education while continuing their day-to-day responsibilities.
The RN to BSN program, along with the College of Nursing’s existing Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing, offered with two learning modalities, on-campus or hybrid-online with four cohorts per year, and a 23-month full-time online Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner program with two cohorts per year, offers nursing students educational and career advancement opportunities in numerous stages of their careers.
Through the RN to BSN program, nurses holding an associate degree can earn their bachelor’s degree and expand their clinical and theoretical skills and knowledge. Another advantage to earning a BSN is that it can broaden career opportunities. These include working in leadership roles, as case managers or in quality assurance. BSN preparation provides nurses with the competencies needed to address the increasing complexity of the healthcare system over a broad range of areas
Additionally, hospitals increasingly prefer hiring nurses with a BSN as a criterion for achieving Magnet status. The American Nurses Credentialing Center gives this title for nursing excellence, innovations in nursing practice, and quality patient outcomes.
Like all Roseman University’s academic programs, the RN to BSN program utilizes Roseman’s Six-Point Mastery Learning Model, which allows students to master content at very high levels. The block curriculum allows students to take only one class at a time, focus intently on that content area, and master the content before proceeding to the next block or course. The RN to BSN program consists of eight blocks each taught online by expert faculty with a myriad of clinical, educational, and professional backgrounds. Students are assigned to groups for specified learning activities to develop leadership, communication, and team skills. Students will also complete projects that enhance their previous clinical experiences.
Graduates of the College of Nursing RN to BSN program will join the nearly 2,700 Roseman nursing alumni who are now working across the US delivering high levels of compassionate care.
