One Night a Week at Locations Close to Home
Keuka College’s RN to B.S. in Nursing curriculum is designed for registered nurses (RNs) who have an associate’s degree or diploma in nursing and wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree.
The program builds upon a foundational courses in the arts and sciences to support the professional role of the nurse. You’ll complete coursework in nursing research and evidence based practice, population health, health promotion, technology integration, inter professional collaboration and leadership. With a classroom-based, blended delivery format and experienced nursing faculty, you’ll gain the personal and professional skills needed for a baccalaureate-prepared nurse.
During your Field Period™ course, you’ll explore a new or expanded nursing role, allowing you to look at your practice in new ways and with new skills. You’ll work hand-in-hand with your advisor and preceptor to develop the Field Period™ experience that works best for you.
Upon graduation, our students are prepared to specialize in a variety of areas, including community health, school health, home care, leadership and management, or specialty services. A bachelor’s degree in nursing also paves the way (and is required) for acceptance into graduate-level nursing programs.
The B.S. in Nursing for RNs curriculum consists of 13 courses and 34 credit hours. For planning purposes, classes meet one night each week for four hours. Students spend additional time outside of class to complete readings, assignments, case studies, online discussions, and group work.
