The RN to BSN program is designed for working nurses. Our high-quality, convenient, online program offers registered nurses a seamless transition into more advanced course work. Our curriculum combines general education courses with professional nursing theory, complex critical thinking and limited practicum experiences. Consistent with the mission and goals of the university, our accredited nursing programs prepare nurses as leaders who can provide health care to individuals, families, groups and populations of diverse cultures in a variety of settings.

Career Outlook

How can a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree work for you? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has issued an industry goal to have 80 percent of the nursing workforce hold a BSN by 2020. In Kentucky, current statistics show that only 34 percent of nurses hold a BSN degree. As more and more employers are making this the standard requirement, the job growth looks strong for graduates with a BSN degree. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing jobs are projected to grow 16 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Individuals with a Bachelor of Science Nursing degree often work in health care and can serve in such roles as:

  • Clinical hospital staff nurse
  • Non-clinical hospital staff nurse
  • Non-hospital nurse
