R.N. to B.S.N. now fully online
Immaculata University is now offering the accelerated R.N. to B.S.N. program in a fully online delivery format, in addition to classroom delivery on campus or at numerous off-site locations in the tri-state area. Registered nurses can complete the requirements for their bachelor’s degree in about two years, even while working full-time. Immaculata accepts many credits from other institutions, and in some cases, credit is awarded for prior learning gained through life experience.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the registered nurse workforce is expected to increase by 26 percent from 2010 to 2020, which translates into 712,000 new nurses moving into the workforce. Add to this the projected 495,500 replacement nurses needed, and a total of 1.2 million new nurses will be needed by 2020, making nursing the top occupation in terms of job growth over the next seven years.
“Given the success of Immaculata’s R.N. to B.S.N. program in the classroom, combined with the future demand for nurses, Immaculata will continue to be a leader in educating R.N.s by offering a fully online program,” said IU’s new Director of Online Instruction Dean M. Julian, Ed.D.
Immaculata University has been educating nurses for more than 25 years, providing an award-winning Holistic Nursing Program, as recognized by the American Holistic Nurses Association. Immaculata’s nursing programs address the needs of a changing health care delivery system and promote nursing as a key role in primary health care and the continuum of care, from health promotion to disease management. Courses enable students to provide evidence-based, culturally competent care while providing patients with holistic care.
The Division of Nursing at Immaculata, accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), is one of the largest nursing programs in Pennsylvania. CCNE’s accreditation provides an unbiased confirmation that Immaculata’s nursing programs meet expectations to adequately prepare individuals for professional practice, lifelong learning, and graduate education. In addition to the R.N. to B.S.N. program, the Division of Nursing offers a Master of Science in Nursing and a pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
