ORU to Launch New Online RN to BSN Program

NursingThe Oral Roberts University Anna Vaughn College of Nursing will be launching an online RN to BSN program in the fall of 2013. The program allows students with a two year associate’s degree to complete a Bachelor of Science in as little as one year.

The new online program will focus on helping adult learners that wish to better equip themselves educationally, but are unable to leave their homes, jobs and ministries to attend nursing school. Students who complete the program will receive a degree that is fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing.

“The ORU College of Nursing is proud to offer, yet another way to go into every person’s world through the new online RN to BSN degree,” said Dr. Kenda Jezek, dean of the ORU Anna Vaughn College of Nursing. “This program incorporates the same high-quality coursework that has made ORU nursing graduates so valued in the health care community and combines it with the whole person education that has made ORU a world-renown university.”

All applicants must have earned an associate’s degree in nursing or the equivalent. RN-BSN candidates must meet the same general education requirements as generic BSN students, but general education courses may be transferred from other accredited universities. Some general education coursework can be obtained from ORU's distance learning program.
