The RN to Baccalaureate Track serves registered nurses who live and work in various geographical areas. Courses are offered in block schedules, and some components are offered on the Internet and some on-campus. Students may enroll in liberal education courses and selected Nursing courses prior to being admitted to the Nursing major.
