The RN-to-BSN track is for licensed RN’s who graduated with a diploma or Associate’s degree in nursing from an ACEN accredited institution (Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Education, Inc., formerly NLNAC). The curriculum is based on national nursing standards and evidence-based practice, is endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Association, and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is nationally and internationally recognized for its excellence in Nursing education in caring science.
Students enrolled in FAU’s RN-BSN track will develop the skills to transform complex healthcare systems through caring leadership that facilitates intra and interprofessional collaboration to achieve quality outcomes. RN-BSN graduates are eligible to pursue certification in Holistic Nursing as well as prepared to pursue graduate education in Nursing (masters and doctoral).
The RN-BSN track is 32 credit hours, offered online and has inexpensive in-state tuition rates.
Massachusetts has initiated the process to join NC-SARA and are expected to be approved by the end of this year. Massachusetts state authorization restricts activities in internships and supervised academic field experiences. Therefore, any distance learning student in the College of Nursing who will be residing in Massachusetts while participating in their academic program should contact the college before enrolling to assure they are compliant with state authorization rules.
