Midway has several nursing programs and formats available which can lead you to your ultimate nursing career goals. The first option is our four year in-seat BSN program. More commonly preferred by our traditional students, the courses take place during the day and allow for students to live on campus and play a sport should they so choose. The same degree is available through a different format which is our RN-BSN program. Students may choose to complete an ADN first (either elsewhere or through Midway) for which the courses are available as day or evening courses. Once complete, ADN students that pass the NCLEX can pursue our RN-BSN program which is fully online while already beginning work as an RN. A BSN can be earned through either of the aforementioned programs in the same amount of time, just through different course formats. Speak with an admissions counselor today to see which program is right for you.

Student Testimonial

"Nursing is more than passing meds and checking vitals. The BSN program makes nurses dig deeper and look past the patient’s physical self and look at care as a whole body of work. I am grateful that I was able to continue my education at Midway and I hope that I am representing them well in the hospital.”
