RN to BSN Online Degree Program

If you are looking for a Christian college with a comprehensive nursing program that fits your busy lifestyle, look no further. The online curriculum for the Bluefield College RN to BSN program is designed for registered nurses in Virginia and beyond who desire to earn the baccalaureate nursing degree. Building on a foundation of competencies attained by the registered nurse, the program broadens and expands the student’s knowledge, psychomotor skills and attitudes. It also prepares them for the generalist role in any health care setting, enhances personal and professional satisfaction, explores career opportunities and develops a foundation for additional study in graduate nursing education. Graduates are prepared to be designers of care using evidenced-based practice, coordinators of care and managers of care who function independently and interdependently as members of the health care team.

“Being in the RN-BSN program at Bluefield College has been a fantastic experience. The nursing program faculty members understand the time constraints that daily life puts on their students and are very accommodating. The online learning format ensures that life doesn’t get in the way of school and that school doesn’t get in the way of life. From admissions and academic advising to the faculty expertise and the online environment, the motivation and knowledge I’ve received from Bluefield College is the driving force behind my academic success.”
