The Harrisburg University RN to BSN program offers the strong online BSN program you would expect from a STEM-centered university. Like other offerings you may have seen, the HU BSN program is an 18-month online program that builds on your prior education and experience as a registered nurse with an associate degree or hospital diploma. However that’s where the similarities end.
At Harrisburg University, we deliver a level of nursing education that goes beyond what you can expect (and get) from other programs. Your instructors are experienced in the healthcare and nursing field and offer an interdisciplinary-centered education that utilizes experts in Genetics, Epidemiology, Ethics, and Informatics.
You’ll combine academic coursework with professional practice while completing your BSN program. Coursework in evidence-based practice and science not only prepares you to meet every employer expectation for a BSN, but also preps you for a future graduate program. Your practicum components include an emphasis on advocacy and you have opportunities to gain practical experience in areas of special interest to you.
Research courses engage you with your actual practice or employment setting. You are a nurse colleague at HU. You’ll also experience the freedom of greater career mobility and be ready to pursue a graduate degree if desired. That’s the HU difference at work to give you extra knowledge, experience, and a boost in your nursing career.
