Everything you need to know about our online RN-BSN program

Affordable online RN-MSN program

The nation’s Magnet hospitals have moved to require all nurse managers and leaders to hold at least a bachelor’s degree in nursing. This is due to a growing body of research which shows that lower mortality rates, fewer medication errors and increased positive outcomes are all linked to nurses prepared at the baccalaureate level.

RNs who have earned their BSN have more in-depth treatment and research knowledge, more robust communication and professional development skills and a better understanding of social and political issues affecting healthcare delivery.

In addition to advanced skills in communication, management, technology and population care, SAU’s online RN-BSN program dives deep into what it means to be a Christian caregiver charged with restoring nursing with its core values. This way, you will graduate with more than just knowledge, but with the wisdom to help you meet both the spiritual and physical needs of those for whom you care.

Admissions Requirements

  • An associate degree in nursing from an accredited school or a diploma from a National League for Nursing (NLN) accredited school
  • An official transcript from all previous institutions attended with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 for all prior college work
  • Unrestricted, unencumbered, current nursing license from the state of employment.  License must be kept current throughout program.
