Get ready for your future nursing career.

This program’s coursework is 100% online and can be completed in as quickly as one year and is completely self-directed. Classes, testing, and virtual clinical work can be completed from anywhere, on your schedule. 

Nothing is more frustrating than sifting through different expectations and rules from one class to the next. To alleviate confusion, we’ve streamlined the curriculum to take the stress out of assignments and help you stay organized throughout the entire program. 

Our instructors were hand selected out of hundreds of applicants and are ready to help you become the nurse you aspire to be. Instructors will actively communicate with students in discussion boards and respond to emails within 24 hours during the school week, so you’ll feel like you’re getting the same quality instruction as a small in-person class. Instead of drowning in information through lectures, our focus is on personal communication to help you understand each chapter and how it will affect you as a nurse.

A virtual approach to hands-on learning.

This program’s coursework is 100% online and we don’t want to sacrifice quality practice for the convenience of online learning. That is why we have partnered with one of the best online simulation experiences, Shadow Health, to offer our students an immersive clinical experience from your computer. Through Shadow Health, you will work with a diverse set of patients and scenarios and interact with them in real-time. This software allows you to practice critical thinking, patient care and education, and much more in a safe environment. You can learn more about Shadow Health in this video and see what your clinical work will look like as a BTC RN to BSN student.

We’ve hand selected our nursing faculty to make sure they are the best for our students. Help is always available and our staff and faculty strive to help you reach your goals and navigate the waters of an online nursing program.
