Applications are being accepted for the new online RN-BSN program to begin in August at Duquesne University School of Nursing, Pittsburgh. Prospective students can apply for the spring semester.
The online-only program enables RNs with an associate degree in nursing or diploma in nursing to obtain the BSN degree.
Classes are eight weeks in length and will be offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Students may complete the program on a full-time or part-time basis and may take any of the required non-nursing courses at Duquesne University or at another pre-approved university.
The curriculum includes six optional credits in one of these specialty areas: Ethics, quality and safety, forensics, veterans health, global health and human rights, and professional development. Online or on-campus orientation to the RN-BSN program will cover the online format and Blackboard, with online assignments, testing, tech support and faculty and adviser support provided throughout the program.
To be considered for financial aid, applicants must complete the university financial aid form found on the online application.
Admission decisions are made immediately after completed application and required documents are received.
Because of higher education regulation changes, Duquesne University is unable to accept applications for admission to online programs and courses from students living in Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New York and Wisconsin.
