Our accredited program for working registered nurses allows students to complete a bachelor of science in nursing through a combination of online, on-campus, and community experiences.
Students may enroll in either a full- or part-time schedule, and meet on-campus just three times during each semester. On-campus locations include Bemidji, Duluth, Cambridge, Coon Rapids, White Bear Lake, and East Grand Forks. The program starts a new group every fall semester (once a year).
Clinical learning opportunities include a wide variety of experiences, including a community health service learning project. These experiences are arranged between the faculty and the student which means RN-BS students are able to complete much of their clinical learning experiences as close to home as possible.
In addition to being admitted to BSU, you will need to submit an RN-BS program application. Fall 2016 applications to the program are no longer being accepted. The application form for Fall 2017 will be available in early January 2017.
