The RN-BS program allows registered nurses with an associate’s degree in nursing to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The RN-BS completion program is web-enhanced, offering a combination of face to face and online instruction. Students meet for class every other Tuesday at University Center in Greenville. The weeks that students do not meet on campus, they complete their course work online through interactive online learning activities. Students who enroll in a full time plan of study are able to complete their BS in Nursing in 12 months. Part time and full time plans of study are available to meet the needs of working students. The School of Nursing has established relationships with Tri-County Technical College and Greenville Technical College, which allows for a seamless transition for the associate degree registered nurse graduates to enter our program.
Because these students come to the program as licensed, experienced registered nurses, the RN to BS in nursing program focuses on socializing the RN to the role of the baccalaureate prepared nurse and shaping their values to include ethical decision making, intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, and interdisciplinary collegiality. The curriculum provides depth to the RNs’ current knowledge base, including courses in Professionalism in Nursing, Community and Family Nursing, Healthcare Genetics, Leadership and Management in Nursing, and Research in Nursing.
Students are admitted to the program in fall and spring semesters of each year. For information please contact the RN-BS Student Services Program Coordinator, Ms. Ellen Chiles, at (864) 250-8881 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
