Sumner College expanding with new online RN to BSN accredited nursing program
Sumner College has just announced their new 13-month accredited RN to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program. With classes beginning on Monday, June 1, 2020 this new 100% online program is designed for working registered nurses (RN’s) who want to grow their nursing career in as few as 50 weeks. Currently employed registered nurses can advance their education and earn their BSN degree without interrupting their employment. This Sumner College bachelor degree program is fully accredited by the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools (ABHES) to prepare students to step into more advanced areas of nursing.
With the addition of this new RN to BSN degree program, Sumner College continues to prepare future professional leaders of tomorrow in the field of nursing. Classes are offered in a flexible online format, allowing students to work while they are enrolled in the program.
This new accelerated 13 month BSN program prepares registered nurses (RN) for high-demand careers requiring a BSN degree. Designed to increase critical thinking and nursing clinical decision-making, it builds on previous knowledge and incorporates best practices and national initiatives. This online program is a convenient and flexible way for working students to continue their education without interrupting their employment. Online classroom size is limited to 25 students per faculty member to ensure that our students get the personalized attention they need to be successful.
Many hospitals are pursuing Magnet status and now require entry-level Registered Nurses to have a BSN. This online degree gives individuals a competitive advantage when applying for positions where an RN degree is required, but a BSN degree is preferred. Current opportunities for graduates of the new Sumner College program range from resident care manager, travel nurses, charge nurses and direct care nurses in settings like home health care. Nurses who have achieved the BSN designation are highly sought after for all nursing positions because of their ability to offer an enhanced level of care resulting in better patient outcomes.
Sumner College has a history of preparing their students for success for more than 45 years in Oregon and Washington. For those who want to grow into management positions in the nursing field, a BSN from Sumner College will give them a competitive advantage.
