The RN-BSN program provides licensed Diploma and Associate Degree prepared nurses an opportunity to further develop clinical reasoning and analytical skills. This program of study expands the initial nursing preparation with course work to enhance professional development, prepare for a broader scope of clinical practice, and provide a better understanding of the cultural, political, economic, and social issues that affect patients and influence care delivery.
