Finish in one year with the Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The program is now fully online with no set class times, so you can complete your coursework around your shifts.

Focus on Care for Individuals to Communities

The RN-BSN provides professional nursing training that’s based on inquiry, care, and standards of practice. You’ll be prepared for independent and collaborative work in the health care system, delivering evidence-based care to individuals, families, groups, and communities.

Courses focus on nursing concepts in community health, nursing research, health assessment, pharmacology, nursing care for the older adult, and leadership and management.

Finish Online in Three Semesters

The RN-BSN has only one online cohort each year, beginning in the fall. Complete your courses in three semesters, including summer. To be eligible for this program, you must hold an active unrestricted North Carolina nursing license.

hybrid cohort featuring online and in-person courses is also available and offers face-to-face courses one day per week at set locations.

Stand Out in a Growing Field

Employment for RNs is expected to grow 7 percent through 2029. Job prospects for those with a BSN may be better than for RNs without one. That’s partly due to an increase in demand for health care services because of the aging population.

As hospitals discharge patients more quickly, more people may be admitted to long-term care facilities, outpatient care centers, or need health care at home. That means more jobs are needed at those facilities. There is also faster than average growth in outpatient care facilities that provide same-day rehabilitation and surgery.

The annual median pay for RNs in May 2020 was $75,330.
