Nexus University’s RN to BSN is a uniquely designed program that allows current licensed registered nurses (associate degree or diploma) to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing in three (3) sequential semesters by attending theory classes in an online format allowing working nurses the flexibility needed to work.
The three (3) semester program awards 36 credits for nursing courses taken during the RN to BSN program with the theory courses delivered in an online instructional format. Thirty-five (35) credits are awarded for nursing courses from a diploma or associate degree in nursing programs and are held in escrow until completion of the RN to BSN program. Forty-nine (49) general education credits can be transferred in. Transfer course work must have a grade of C or better in each course. (If not all program requisites, required general education courses, and/or electives are completed, you may be admitted to begin the RN to BSN program; however, successful completion of all program general education courses are required to obtain the BSN degree. Completion of the general education courses while enrolled in the RN to BSN program may prolong the time to degree.)
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN NURSING (MSN) - CLINICAL NURSE LEADER
The MSN Clinical Nurse Leader program is designed to prepare nurses to assume leadership roles within one of four specializations: Healthcare Informatics, Nephrology, Gerontology, and Executive. This degree program focuses on combining the complexities of nursing leadership, health promotion, healthcare economics, epidemiology, research, and communication in the holistic preparation of the clinical nurse leader in the various specialties at the MSN level. The program facilitates the educational needs of nurses who are either working in leadership positions, or who seek to transition into higher-level clinical leadership roles in the near future.
Through this program, the combination of theoretical foundations, evidence-based practice, and clinical experiences will facilitate the development of well-prepared nurse leaders. Graduates will be prepared to fulfill leadership roles in the various healthcare settings.
