Can I still work while attending the program?
The RN-to-BSN curriculum follows a hybrid format, meaning much of the course work can be completed online. There are scheduled activities and exams which are held on campus. Clinical hours must also be completed in specific clinical sites. Otherwise, attendance requirements must be met, but the program does provide flexibility. Meeting dates/times will be noted in course outlines, and made available at the start of each course.
Is the RN-to-BSN Bridge program accredited?
The nursing program is a candidate for initial accreditation by ACEN. Candidate status is granted after a review of the applicant program’s potential to achieve ACEN accreditation by the ACEN Directors. Candidate status does not guarantee that a Candidate program will achieve initial accreditation. However, if that Candidate status does result in initial accreditation, the effective date of the program’s accreditation will be the date on which Candidacy was approved.
