Department of Nursing RN-BSN Online Program
Our accredited online RN to BSN Program at Highlands University is designed for registered nurses to earn a bachelor’s degree. Our program prepares graduates for higher-level nursing positions in patient care, management and community health. Our graduates become leaders in the nursing profession, and nearly half pursue advanced degrees in nursing (i.e. nurse practitioner, nursing education, and nurse midwife).
Our strong partnerships with associate degree nursing programs like the one at Luna Community College make it much easier for students to transition into our BSN Program.
Earning your BSN is a gateway to a variety of exciting nursing jobs with potential for higher pay. Dr. Peter Buerhaus, a premier researcher on the future of the nursing workforce, predicts that more than half of the nurses in the country will retire within the next 20 years, resulting in a big nursing shortage and high demand for this field within the next decade.
In addition, a new trend evolving in the healthcare profession is that employers are looking for nurses with greater levels of education, giving our BSN graduates a competitive edge in the job market.
Convenient, Affordable Online Instruction
All nursing classes are offered though online instruction, making the dream of completing your BSN achievable. In addition, you are able to complete your clinical training close to home, which provides you the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the health issues facing your community while maximizing your time.
We are geared toward working RNs with a part-time, flexible option that fits into your busy schedule. We also offer a full-time option that is great for recent associate degree graduates desiring to move straight into a bachelor’s degree program.
At Highlands, your education is affordable with our university offering the lowest tuition of any four-year college in the western U.S.
Our dedicated nursing faculty is made up of experienced clinicians who are highly educated in the latest developments in the nursing profession. They are committed to helping their students reach their full potential.
