Online Program in Nursing

Degrees Offered

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.
