Nursing (RN to BSN)
Bowling Green State University
The College of Nursing offers an opportunity for graduates of associate degree and diploma nursing programs to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing. The RN student achieves the same terminal objectives as the basic BSN student. However, this alternate track for the RN provides for flexibility and an individualized curriculum approach for the nurse in practice. The seven course nursing courses of this program are offered online, and students choose from one of four Plan of Study options for program completion. The curriculum for nursing students is based on Orem's self-care deficit theory in nursing. Person-centered approaches to nursing care focus on helping people to increase their abilities to promote, maintain or restore their own health while also involving the family and community. Critical thinking and decision-making are integral components of the curriculum.
The BGSU-UT RN-BSN Completion program is nationally accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and has full approval of the Ohio Board of Nursing. The nursing courses and clinical experiences are provided by the College of Nursing at the University of Toledo Health Science Campus in Toledo.
