The Clarkson College online Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program provides associate-degree or diploma-prepared RNs an opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree and advance in their professional nursing career.

The RN to BSN program has a tremendous reputation for its level of academic excellence, proficiency in online education, customizable and accelerated study options and small student-to-faculty ratio. The curriculum includes a series of core and nursing courses related to evidence-based practice, leadership and population health, which provides students with advanced knowledge to prepare them to be leaders in the nursing field.

With the goal of preparing well-educated and highly skilled advanced practice nurses, the program is designed to align with the core competencies outlined by the Institute of Medicine. Application to real-world scenarios is emphasized through coursework and faculty-led class discussions, so you may begin applying what you learn as it’s taught in the classroom.

Upon successful completion of the RN to BSN program, your enhanced knowledge can lead to advanced opportunities in the nursing field, as well as serve as a pathway toward a career as a nurse practitioner or nursing instructor, administrator or researcher.

If you have considered pursuing a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree, or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, Clarkson College also offers an online RN to MSN option that allows you to apply credit earned at the Bachelor degree-level toward your Master’s degree.
