The University of Providence RN-BSN program prepares graduates for a generalist nurse role that improves health care and advances the nursing profession through education, research, practice, and compassionate care. This program is offered to licensed, practicing Registered Nurses.
In this part-time program, students complete no more than nine credits per semester for a total of four semesters. All students are required to attend a live online class one day every other week throughout the program, and all students must attend a face-to-face orientation at the beginning of the program. New cohorts begin in January and August each year.
“The UP instructors are supportive and knowledgeable, and their attitude with students continually communicates to us how to be successful. The camaraderie from my fellow students was tremendous and I felt supported every step of the way.”
