RN to BSN Program Overview
The RN to BSN Program does not lead to licensure as a registered nurse; it is designed for licensed RNs who wish to earn a Bachelor's Degree. If you are interested in a career in nursing but are not licensed as a registered nurse or enrolled in a program leading to licensure, you should follow the program in Nursing Preparation described in the Undergraduate Catalog.
The RN to BSN Program is based on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing proposed Essentials of Baccalaureate Nursing Education. Students will come to the program with the strong liberal arts background required by Frostburg State University's General Education Program.
The RN to BSN curriculum is designed to increase the registered nurse's knowledge and skills in the areas of:
The program prepares nurses to assume roles in leadership, complex clinical care coordination, and community/public health and serves as the academic foundation for graduate study. The program is open to all registered nurses who meet the admission criteria. Courses will be delivered in a part-time plan of study using an entirely online format using synchronous online classrooms periodically throughout each semester to maximize student flexibility and maintain the student-faculty connection that is essential to academic success.
