Nursing (RN-to-BS)

Our accredited program for working registered nurses allows students to complete a bachelor of science in nursing through a combination of on-campus and online coursework.

Students may enroll on either a full- or part-time basis, and meet on campus just three times during the semester, plus once for new student orientation in August. Courses are offered in Bemidji, Cambridge, Duluth, Coon Rapids, and White Bear Lake, and students are able to arrange their clinical experiences as close to home as possible.
