Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program Launched

BSN Program Offers Flexibility to Working Nurses

Falling fortuitously within National Nurses Week, Bellevue University is announcing the launch of its Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree completion program. The BSN program will be geared toward providing students who have already become a Registered Nurse the opportunity to complete their bachelor's degree. The program will be available in the fall term with a start date of Oct. 2, 2012.

"There are many RNs in the workforce who do not have a bachelor's degree. Many employers are requiring at least a bachelor's degree for management positions," said Kristen Wessel, Director of the BSN program. "Our program will be able to help great nurses within the region and across the nation toward career advancement."

The program will be offered in an online, cohort format. The cohort model is designed to enable students to move through the program with their peers, creating a community to study and learn with. The classes are offered in a specific order over a 54-week period of study (excluding holidays and breaks).

Consisting of nine, six-week courses, the program will cover areas such as nursing leadership, nursing informatics, and healthcare regulation among other topics. While many other degree completion programs require a clinical component, the Bellevue University program will incorporate that real world element into the coursework, creating more flexibility for students.

"Students still get that practical experience because we offer that through strategically planned curriculum in the form of virtual simulation, discussion, debate," Wessel explained.
