MUSC announces online nursing program

  • Friday, July 11, 2014

The Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing has announced that it will begin to offer an online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in nursing (RN to BSN) degree program beginning this fall.

Applications for the program are currently being accepted through July 15, 2014, and can be accessed at https://www.applyweb.com/musc/index.html.

“This is an exciting time as we embark on new endeavors to advance our nurses professionally,” said Gail W. Stuart PhD, RN, FAAN, dean and distinguished university professor at MUSC’s College of Nursing. “With changes in health care, we need a nursing work force that is continually growing, learning and assuming new roles in patient care.”

The RN to BSN program will enable nurses to pursue the advanced training required in a growing number of hospitals as well as assume leadership roles and increase their earning potential while balancing work and other life obligations. Health care has becoming increasingly complex, and health care organizations, as well as the federal government, are calling for baccalaureate prepared nurses.

The online program can be completed in one academic year and consists of three full-time semesters. Students who meet the program’s admission criteria and have the prerequisites for admission will complete 10 courses over 12 months that will provide a foundation for professional nursing practice.
