Program Description

The RN to Bachelor of Science (RN to BS) degree, Nursing option at Northwest Nazarene University allows registered nurses (RN) who have been educated with Associate Degrees or Diplomas in nursing to broaden their education as well as increase their career and educational options. The course of study is designed to enhance critical thinking and communication skills of RN students, and to develop leadership abilities. Essential areas of baccalaureate nursing education content not provided in Associate Degree or Diploma nursing education are provided to expand the RNís education to the BS degree. This degree completion program supplements NNUís CCNE accredited undergraduate degree program in nursing. Both undergraduate programs carry out the Universityís commitment to Transformation, Truth, Community, and Service which are NNUís core themes.
