RN to BSN Fast Track Program

The Fast Track RN/BSN program provides a course of study specifically designed for the working RN. Based on the principles of adult learning theory, and an emphasis on expanding existing professional knowledge, the program prepares RN's for leadership roles in patient care and management. A course in Business in which you will develop a business plan, and a computer course in HIPPA Security are but a few of the new and exciting courses in this curriculum. The program is 48 credits, 27 of nursing and 21 of liberal arts, which includes a 3 credit graduate course.  A Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing is awarded upon successful completion of the program. This cohort-based program is offered on campus and in various off-campus locations throughout the state.
