RN to BSN Overview

Campbellsville’s ACEN-accredited RN to BSN online program provides busy registered nurses the opportunity to continue their education and advance their career. Students can acquire an advanced understanding of patient care and further develop their nursing skills to prepare for management opportunities. You will also explore areas including healthcare reform and advances in medical technology in this Top 50 ranked RN-BSN program from Best College Reviews.

Through the online RN to BSN, students will explore a wide range of nursing topics. Courses cover medical and surgical nursing, pharmacology, gerontology nursing, social statistics and maternal-child nursing. There are also three guided electives students can choose from: contemporary healthcare management, health economics and financial management in healthcare.

Nursing is a fast-growing and competitive field. A BSN can provide nurses that extra edge in terms of candidacy, especially as many hospitals prefer nurses with a bachelor’s degree. A BSN can also serve as a stepping-stone for nurses who wish to later pursue a master’s in nursing. Nurses can work toward leadership roles in the field or seek non-hospital opportunities, such as case management or even teaching.

Campbellsville’s RN to BSN online degree allows nurses to complete coursework during their hectic schedule, without the need to commute to campus. While the program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), Campbellsville University is additionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
