Bachelor of Science in Nursing, RN to BSN (3 + 1)
The Ohio University School of Nursing RN to BSN program is designed especially for registered nurses (RNs) who want to further their education and advance their careers by earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). We realize that nurses juggle multiple demands — career, family and classes — and carving out time to drive to campus and sit for a lecture can be challenging. The online RN to BSN program provides flexibility to earn a valuable degree through learning anytime, anywhere.
