Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN)


Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) Overview

Aspen University offers an online RN to BSN degree program for registered nurses who have an associate degree or diploma in nursing and wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree.

With a liberal arts foundation, our RN-to-BSN program builds on initial nursing preparation to prepare nurses for a broader scope of practice with a useful understanding of the cultural, political, economic, and social issues that affect patients and influence care delivery. It is designed for adult learners wishing to complete their undergraduate degree without the on-campus class requirement.

Our mission is to enhance the health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities at local, state and national levels through excellence in teaching, scholarship and practice.
