Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky., is meeting the needs of working nurses by offering its fully accredited RN-BSN program 100% online this fall, according to a news release.
Beverly Hart, PhD, APRN, program coordinator, said the online RN-BSN program offers stimulating curricular opportunities students expect in a format convenient to adult learners.
Students can choose from a full-time option that allows them to graduate in as little as one year or a part-time option that will take just under two years to complete. They will receive credit for prior learning and can complete their clinical projects in their own communities, according to the release.
Since spring 2013, the university has been offering other online degrees in nursing, including the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree as well as MSN and post-MSN certificate options in family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, nursing administration and family nurse practitioner, and public health.
More than 250 students are enrolled in these programs, according to the release. Hart attributes the success in large part to the professors hands-on approach to online learning and their commitment to students engagement and achievement.
EKU nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. They also incorporate the standards of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, including evidence-based practice and professional nursing communication and collaboration.
