Online RN-to-BSN Program Overview

Provide the Highest Level of Care

Grow as a registered nurse (RN) with a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) from Widener University. Our program is entirely online and designed for registered nurses. Our online program builds on the strengths you already demonstrate as a licensed nurse, develops leadership skills and expands your knowledge to deliver a higher level of care. You can further develop your skills and advance your career with a completed BSN in as little as a year if you are starting with 59 credits of pre-requisites completed.

At Widener, we develop caregivers whose influence is seen, heard, and known through out their organizations. We challenge you to expand your knowledge through critical thinking and examine various methods of health care delivery such as evidence-based practice, leadership, and population health.

Quality nurses are in demand, and with an increasing number of hospitals striving for Magnet Recognition Program status, the need for professional, baccalaureate nurses is becoming a requirement. Earn your online BSN from one of very few institutions recognized as a National League for Nursing Center of Excellence for 2013-2017.
