Friday, March 3, 2017
(STILLWATER, Okla., March 3, 2017) – Oklahoma State University is now accepting applicants for its new Bachelor of Science in Nursing, an RN to BSN baccalaureate degree program, set to launch with the Fall 2017 semester. Offered in the College of Education, the online program is designed for individuals who have obtained Registered Nurse licensure and have successfully completed either an accredited associate’s degree or diploma program.
The BSN at OSU-Stillwater delivers coursework 100 percent online over three successive semesters and is designed for working adult learners. Each student will have an advisor who provides system guidance, support with online activities, and serves as a mentor while navigating the online degree process.
The OSU RN to BSN program concept is unique because of the health and wellness concentration of the degree. The College of Education includes a strong health focus with programs in health education and promotion, applied exercise science, recreational therapy, physical education, and counseling and counseling psychology. The program plans to seek accreditation through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
With a national focus on the need to prepare more registered nurses with advanced education, OSU and the College of Education welcome the opportunity to provide a quality program that will produce leaders in clinical nursing practice.
“The new Bachelor of Science in Nursing program meets an expressed need for the state’s health care community and it expands the emphasis on health that is present in the College of Education. We are excited to offer a high-quality program that will produce more nurses with advanced education for Oklahoma, the region and the U.S.,” says College of Education Dean John Romans.
