RN-BSN Completion Program

Written by admin On the
Are you already a registered nurse looking to continue your education? Our affordable, fully online program* is a great option.

If you are a nurse who holds an RN license, you already know that the push to earn a BSN is in full swing. Our RN to BSN curriculum will give you the credentials you need. We offer both hybrid and online delivery models that will allow busy, working nurses the flexibility to continue their education. Due to our affiliation with Cincinnati's most preferred hospital, The Christ Hospital Health Network, you can be assured your RN-BSN degree will mean more than just 3 letters behind your name. 

*please note that the online option will begin in the fall of 2017. Due to state regulations, residents of the following states are currently not eligible to enroll into our online programs: California, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
