Building upon knowledge and experience of registered nurses who have already successfully completed an Associates Degree or diploma nursing program and passed the NCLEX-RN, the RN to BS Program is delivered in a student-centered, distance learning/asynchronous format that allows practicing nurses to attend school while maintaining employment.
Offered in a one- or two-year sequence, the program prepares nurses to provide the necessary leadership to advance quality of care, patient safety and health services in an evolving health care system.
Applicants completing their RN program in May/June can apply for the two year track in the fall semester before they graduate, and if accepted, they begin their bachelor's coursework at UB in mid-May. Program acceptance is conditional pending successful completion of nursing degree and statistics prerequisite. Students will also need to provide proof of licensure and employment before they enroll in their second semester coursework (fall).
