Four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Earning a four-year degree will help give you an advantage in the increasingly complex medical field. Not only do many institutions have higher pay grades for bachelor's-prepared nurses, but hospitals applying for Magnet status employ a larger proportion of nurses with a B.S. degree than without.
Associate Degree in Nursing
This two-year program is designed to provide students with the fundamental skills of nursing and prepare them to take the national examination for licensure (NCLEX) as registered nurses.
 
Accelerated R.N. to B.S. in Nursing
Nurses who have already earned a diploma or associate degree can take their education to the next level in just one year through a blend of in-class, web-enhanced, and online courses over three seven-week sessions.
