Nursing Students in a simulation


Are you a nurse who is thinking about returning to school for a bachelor’s degree in nursing? SVSU’s RN to BSN program has been designed for the working RN. The program can be completed in as few as four semesters or completed at your own pace. Courses are offered online and instructors use a variety of teaching tools for every learning style. Clinical experiences will consist of participating in online simulation, working with preceptors, and developing quality improvement projects. Our RN to BSN Coordinator is a registered nurse who will advise and guide you every step of the way.

Meet your Advisor

Megan Rule

Hello, my name is Megan Rule MSN, BSN, RN, and I am SVSU’s RN to BSN Coordinator and advisor. I have been a registered nurse for more than 16 years, and my clinical background is in Labor and Delivery and Pediatrics. I joined SVSU in 2023 out of a love for learning and higher education. I was an RN to BSN student and I am now a doctoral candidate; I am living proof that you can accomplish your goals! It is my pleasure to work with registered nurses who want to further their education and obtain their BSN degree. 

Nursing school is a journey, and no two nurses walk the exact same pathway. We strive to work with registered nurses to develop an individualized program that will allow them to obtain their BSN degree, balance their work, school, and personal lives, and be successful with all their educational endeavors.

SVSU has a phenomenal team that works together to guide, teach, care for, and mentor our students. Each step of the way we will be there to help you plan your schedule and register you for classes. We will go above and beyond to help you accomplish your goals; the sky is the limit!
