Accelerated Nursing Bachelor's
Independence University Online
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is designed for registered nurses who wish to enhance their professional knowledge and skills and complete the requirements for a baccalaureate degree while continuing as a working professional. Built on a foundation of biological, physical, and clinical sciences, the curriculum provides the advanced practice skills required for growth and advancement in the nursing profession. The online curriculum enables the student to acquire and apply new nursing skills in an exciting virtual environment. The BSN program is part of an accelerated RN to BSN to MSN curriculum design. The program enables a Registered Nurse to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing with the option of continuing those studies at the graduate level. Because two of the advanced courses in the BSN curriculum are part of the core curriculum of the MSN program, the student is able to shorten the path to the MSN degree. To enroll in this program, an applicant must have a valid Registered Nurse (RN) license within the United States, be a graduate of an NLN-accredited nursing program, have an associate of science degree or equivalent, and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. A minimum of 60 semester credits beyond the associate’s degree is required for graduation, with one fourth of these credits in general education.
