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.
