RN-BSN Track

Post-Licensure Nursing

Simpson University School of Nursing offers an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (RN-BSN Track), which caters to working registered nurses (currently licensed in the U.S.) who want to develop professional skills.

The degree expands the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of professional nursing, providing a meaningful understanding of healthcare’s rapidly changing environment.

With our unique class structure and class design, students take one class at a time - one night a week on Thursday nights for 5 weeks, with each class designed to build on the knowledge gained in the previous class. Our step-by-step structure optimizes learning, leading to greater assimilation and stronger retention, allowing you to compete in the rapidly changing healthcare environment. This program is a hybrid format with courses being offered face-to-face, online, or a combination of the two.

"I had heard very good things about the RN-BSN program, and the structure really appealed to me, especially the opportunity to meet in a classroom setting once a week. I found it a very personal and encouraging environment. Both staff and faculty truly care about the students, and I always knew that they looked after my interests."
