Returning to School? Come to Info Night!

I heard about Holy Names at my work, where there was a group of people that wanted to get their BSN as a stepping stone to the MSN. Nurses have so many options to advance their career and education. Most have to work so HNUs flexible programs are key to enhancing an RNs education.

RN to BSN Nursing Program

The RN to BSN program is designed for registered nurses who wish to pursue a baccalaureate degree in nursing while employed. The nursing courses are scheduled from 6:00 - 10:00PM each night of the week, with the clinical experiences taking place one day per week in a setting close to the student’s home that is agreed upon by faculty and student. The courses are available in an accelerated format (7-8 class sessions rather then 16 per term) and are offered in an alternating fashion so two or more courses can be completed during a week-long time period. Dependent on the course load, the major coursework could be completed in 18 months.
