Bend, OR (PRWEB) October 17, 2008
Linfield College is launching an accelerated, online RN to BSN degree for registered nurses across the country.
Beginning February 2009, registered nurses can complete Linfield's RN to BSN degree in eighteen months. Previously, this program took twenty-one months.
A majority of the coursework can now be completed on-line. Online courses are perfect for RNs with schedules that demand flexibility. Students do most of the work on their own schedule and post assignments by a certain time each week. The final two nursing courses are tailor-made, onsite clinical experiences, which frequently take place at the RNs current place of employment.
Students continue to have the option of completing the program in twenty-one months.
Each RN in the Online RN to BSN program must be a registered nurse with a current, unencumbered license, have at least a 2.75 GPA in prerequisite and Linfield curriculum courses and provide a letter of reference from their supervisor. The majority of students in Linfield's RN to BSN program are fully employed RNs.
The Online RN to BSN Program is provided by the Linfield College-Good Samaritan School of Nursing, accredited by CCNE, in partnership with the Linfield Adult Degree Program. It is based on the high quality on-campus Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree that began in 1983.
