Nebraska, NE - RN to BSN Nursing School Program

Currently working Registered Nurses in Nebraska who received licensure through an ADN or diploma program can still pursue a bachelor’s degree via an RN to BSN education program. Classes are available online, on evenings and weekends, which allows RNs to schedule their course work around job requirements. In addition, NLN Nursing Acceleration Challenge Exams allow students with on-the-job knowledge to pass by courses that focus upon stuff they have already learned through work experience. This means they can complete a BSN quickly and in a way that is convenient to their current situation—not a bad way to upgrade one’s education at all.

An RN to BSN program requires transcripts from previous RN training and employer recommendations. Because they are a targeted course that puts a great deal of responsibility on the student, they only want dedicated applicants and acceptance is far from guaranteed. Once enrolled, students take courses in advanced nursing methodology, concepts and theory, as well as choosing from an array of electives that consider specialized topics and issues related to nursing, like public health nursing, pharmaceutical research, legal issues in health care, and others—these course offerings tend to vary based on the expertise available in a particular college of nursing. Graduation just requires passing all courses with a sufficient GPA, which can be as low as a 2.5. Once they graduate, students are equipped with a dynamic range of knowledge that can help them move up the ladder in their current workplace or pursue new opportunities in health care facilities and beyond.
