RN to BSN Program - Hybrid Format

The Department of Nursing is happy to announce the new hybrid format for the RN to BSN completion program starting Fall 2008. All nursing courses will be offered in a hybrid format; hybrid equates to at least 50% of the course will be online and the other will be offered in campus (compressed) sessions. This format allows for greater flexibility and decreases campus time.

Additional university/non-nursing credits required for the degree are offered in a variety of formats; traditional, hybrid and online.
