Students who have completed their Associates of Science in Nursing, passed the certification exams to become a Registered Nurse, and who are currently working as an RN at a hospital may complete their Bachelors of Science in Nursing online with Southwestern. Recognizing the barriers that RNs face in terms of employment demands, travel time, and family responsibilities, the program has been designed to allow full-time or part-time study, flexibility in the sequencing of courses, and options to complete the nursing courses online. The clinical skills are completed and certified by approved supervisor at a student's current hospital. Students must apply and be accepted to Southwestern before applying by a separate application to the School of Nursing. Requirements for the RN to BSN program can be found HERE.
