Are you a registered nurse looking to continue your education? Are you in search of a nursing program that aligns with your busy work schedule? You are in the right place! As a leader in healthcare education in Connecticut, Goodwin College offers flexible, accelerated, online nursing classes to help students earn their BSN degrees — without disrupting their day-to-day jobs.
Continuing your nursing education is an incredibly smart career choice, especially today. Across the country, healthcare employers are advancing towards a full BSN workforce by the year 2020. In Connecticut, for example, more than 3 out of 4 nursing employers express a strong preference for graduates holding a bachelor’s degree.
While earning a BSN requires more schooling and hard work, nurses who pursue higher education tend to reap the benefits, including more job offers, higher salaries, and higher quality patient care. With a BSN degree under your belt, you are more likely to stand out amongst other candidates and to encounter greater options within the nursing field. For instance, you can only pursue a career in public health, research, or become a nurse educator with a bachelor’s degree.
The importance of higher education in nursing is only increasing. But we know – just the thought of taking the time to pursue a four-year bachelor’s degree can be a hard pill to swallow, especially as a working RN. That is why, at Goodwin, we make it easier for our students to stay ahead of the curve. Once you complete your associate degree, you can receive your BSN part-time in as few as 16 months through our accelerated nursing program. And for your convenience, all of our RN-to-BSN classes are available fully online.
This means that you can still work full-time or part-time at your job while completing your nursing degree. Our online RN-to-BSN programs are designed specifically for nurses like you who are already working in the field or transitioning from their associate nursing program. If you choose not to take classes at an accelerated pace, you can still customize your class schedule to meet your individual needs. Not only are all nursing classes available online, but they are also available during evening hours. Even clinicals are offered seven days a week, on weekends and evenings, for your convenience.
Goodwin’s online RN-to-BSN program is designed to meet your needs, as a student and as a nurse. Here, you can take accredited online courses without sacrificing a quality education. While taking our online BSN program, for example, you can earn up to thirty-five nursing credits through the Connecticut Articulation Agreement. However, you must be a licensed RN before enrolling in this BSN program. Graduates of our online RN-to-BSN curriculum are equally certified to practice in a variety of specialties and settings within the healthcare field.
As an aspiring nurse, you deserve a college that can work with your schedule, rather than a schedule you have to work for. At Goodwin, we are all about convenience and flexibility. Why wait to start your classes when you don’t have to? Here, there are no wait lists for nursing enrollment and applications are accepted three times a year. And with our fixed tuition model, you will always know the total cost of your RN-to-BSN program before classes begin.
As an accredited nursing school in the state of Connecticut, we believe that you deserve access to a high-quality healthcare education. We also believe you deserve all of the benefits that come alongside a BSN degree. Through our online RN-to-BSN programs, you can live your life and build a future all at once.
