RN-BSN (Post-licensure Program)
Provider of care, designer, manager, coordinator and member of the nursing profession.
Anderson University offers, in partnership with the Department of Adult Studies, an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) for registered nurses who have a diploma or associate degree in nursing. The RN-BSN Completion Program emphasizes analytic skills, a liberal arts perspective, the expertise needed for the nursing profession and a commitment to Christian service. Students are prepared at the generalist level to provide care for patients, which includes individuals, families, groups, communities and populations.
The RN-BSN Completion Program is designed as a hybrid program, providing both courses in a classroom setting as well as online. The nursing courses may be completed in 16 months. Supporting and liberal arts courses are taken following completion of the nursing curriculum and provide the base for effective nursing practice. Transfer credit is evaluated by the Department of Adult Studies and the dean of the School of Nursing or his/her designate.
The program has received full accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approval from the Indiana State Board of Nursing.
