Our competitive programs at all degree levels consistently rank among the top in the state, with high passing rates on state licensing exams.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

Most health care facilities around the country now require at least a bachelor's degree in nursing. Our highly competitive traditional BSN program prepares graduates to work in a variety of health care settings.


We offer several RN to BSN options for working nurses with an ASN degree wishing to further their careers. The RN to BSN can be completed online, on campus, or through one of our off-campus partner cohorts.

The Second Degree Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is designed for career changers who already have a bachelor's degree in another field. This full-time program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in as little as 15 months.
