Accelerated RN to BSN or RN to BSN/MNSc

WELCOME

Welcome to the UAMS College of Nursing Accelerated RN to BSN or RN to BSN/MNSc program. This program is designed for those who are currently registered nurses (RN) who want to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

WHY GET YOUR BSN?

The profession of nursing is evolving to meet the healthcare needs of today’s population. As noted by the Institute of Medicine’s (2010) Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report, the nursing profession is charged with assisting nurses to become lifelong learners and to increase the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses from 50% to 80% by 2020.

Graduates of the RN programs increase their career options, establish a foundation for graduate studies, and are equipped to become effective leaders of the future.

WHY UAMS COLLEGE OF NURSING?

As part of Arkansas’s only comprehensive academic health sciences center, the UAMS College of Nursing is the state’s largest nursing program offering BSN, MNSc (7 specialties), DNP, and PhD degrees.
