There is a growing need in the healthcare system for competent and well-trained nurses with a bachelor’s degree — and the communication, clinical reasoning, and leadership skills that go with it. Nurses who earn a BSN degree experience more career mobility, higher pay, and continuing opportunities for advancement in their profession.
The AOE RN to BSN program builds on previous learning, preparing nurses for a higher level of nursing practice, and providing RNs with the education necessary to move forward in their nursing careers.
The AOE online RN to BSN degree delivers excellence and flexibility for nursing professionals who are ready to take the next career step: 100% online classes, doable 8-week courses, small class sizes, a great reputation, and connections at top NC hospitals. The RN to BSN program is committed to developing nursing professionals who are caring, ethical care providers with interprofessional healthcare team skills — nurses who can be leaders in the ever-expanding world of healthcare.
