Bachelor of Science in Nursing
RNs today are increasingly expected to enhance their educational preparation for practice in today’s dynamic, challenging, and exciting healthcare environments. The Oklahoma State University RN-BSN program is designed to enrich and expand your professional nursing career. For some, the baccalaureate degree may mean job security in your current position. Very often, the added degree supports opportunity for roles in leadership at any level in hospital and long-term care practice. As well, the baccalaureate degree is most often required for many employment opportunities such as in public health, armed services and/or Veteran’s hospitals, home health, research centers, correctional facilities, K-12 educational institutions, law firms, and much more.
OSU’s evidence-based 100% online RN-BSN program will give you an important, broader perspective and the ability to make an even greater impact as a professional RN. The program also builds a strong foundation for continued graduate study.
