Our accredited program for registered nurses allows students to complete a bachelor of science in nursing through a combination of online, on-campus, and community experiences.
CHOOSE your PACE: You have many options in our program. You may enroll in a full-time schedule and complete the nursing requirements in a calendar year. Or choose a part-time schedule, and take as few as one or two courses each semester as it suits your life and work schedule. A typical part-time track takes 2-4 years to complete, including an occasional summer course.
HYBRID or ONLINE: Most students meet on-campus just three times during each semester. On-campus sites include Bemidji, Duluth, Cambridge, Coon Rapids, White Bear Lake, East Grand Forks, and new fully online* option. The program starts a new group every fall semester (once a year).
NO CLINICALS: Practicum 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.
*The “Bemidji Online” cohort meets twice in Bemidji the first semester of the program (Fall 2018), but is otherwise a completely online program option.
Program applications for Fall 2019 will be accepted beginning early January, 2019.
