The Nursing RN-BSN program is delivered onsite at Florida Academy of Nursing’s campus. The program offers preparation for practice as a baccalaureate nurse. The program requires 180 quarter credits for completion (66.5 RN-BSN program credits plus 113.5 ASN transfer credits). Upon successful completion of required courses, the student is awarded the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

The Professional Nurse who holds the BSN degree is prepared to practice in leadership roles, clinical roles and/or clinical education roles. Research shows that by the Year 2020, almost all major US hospitals will require new hire nurses to be BSN nurses. Job opportunities for RNs who hold BSN degrees are projected to be at historic highs in the coming years, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/registered-nurses.htm
