Earn your BSN online while completing your associate degree in nursing
As health care evolves, the field of nursing demands skilled practitioners who can improve patient outcomes. Today's nurses go beyond providing bedside care. They become respected researchers and leaders in the development of evidence-based practices to advance nursing.
If you’re a current associate degree student who wants a higher level of knowledge in nursing, our online concurrent enrollment program may be right for you. This time-efficient and cost-effective pathway enables you to earn an associate degree and a bachelor’s degree in nursing simultaneously. You’ll take the required coursework to become a Registered Nurse (RN) in person at your community college. At the same time, you’ll complete coursework 100% online to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Arizona State University.
The concurrent enrollment RN to BSN coursework builds on the knowledge acquired in the nursing associate degree. You’ll learn about nursing theory, research, public and global health, management and more. The curriculum includes a variety of assignments and practical activities. These activities aim to strengthen your communication, clinical reasoning, problem-solving and interprofessional skills. As an RN to BSN graduate, you’ll excel in the face of health care reforms, advances in technology and ongoing discoveries in evidence-based practice.
Skills and topics covered in the RN to BSN program
Does my concurrent enrollment RN to BSN say 'online'?
No, Arizona State University’s diplomas don’t specify whether you earn your degree online or in person. All diplomas and transcripts simply say “Arizona State University.” That’s because ASU Online students learn from the same faculty and receive the same course content as in-person students receive.
As an ASU Online nursing student, you’ll take courses that are specifically designed to complement and enhance your associate degree classes. Your course load will be manageable, so you’ll be capable of earning both degrees simultaneously. The concurrent enrollment RN to BSN nursing courses include professional nursing theory, nursing research and evidence, public health nursing and more.
