RN to BSN Program
At Elizabethtown College, our students receive a robust and exceptional experience through our RN to BSN Program. Students connect with other nursing students practicing around the world to provide a unique, new world perspective on the discipline of nursing. We believe learning is a constant collaboration between professionals, and it is why our professors do more than talk-the-talk, they walk the walk. We will be there every step of the way to help you succeed.
Nationally, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is becoming the standard entry-level degree for registered nurses. Our RN to BSN program is designed for licensed registered nurses who have an associate’s degree or nursing diploma (ADN). This type of program is often called a “bridge or completion” program. Our accelerated RN to BSN program is designed to be flexible for practicing nurses to move as quickly or at your own pace in earning your bachelor’s degree.
